Hanoi, Nov 11 (UNI) US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have informally spoken to each other multiple times during the two-day APEC Summit in Da Nang in Vietnam, the CNN News reported on Saturday.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had earlier told the reporters that Mr Trump would not hold a formal meeting with Mr Putin at the APEC Summit.
Trump and Putin were seen casually talking while walking to a photo-op at the Asian-Pacific Rim summit on Saturday. Flanked by sizable entourages, the two spoke for much of the walk down to a vista and stood next to each other for a photo.
The chat, while brief, looked friendly, with both leaders speaking with their hands.
