263

The leaders of Russia and the United States are holding a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, shortly after they both addressed the international community on urgent topics, varying from global terrorism to climate change.

The two presidents shook hands in front of the cameras, but refused to answer any questions, before going behind closed doors. Due to their tight schedules, the leaders will only have 55 minutes to complete their bilateral talks, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told the media.
