“We don’t have to agree on all issues, and it wouldn’t be possible anyway, but we need to talk,” Peskov said. 

“It’s not only in the interests of our two countries, but the entire world," he added, according to the AP.

Trump has not yet confirmed that he will meet with Putin at the G-20 summit, but the Kremlin has now repeatedly said that a meeting between the leaders will take place.

Trump on Tuesday threatened to cancel the meeting because Russia recently seized three Ukrainian naval vessels. Trump told The Washington Post that he doesn't "like that aggression at all."

"Maybe I won't have the meeting," he said at the time.

But Peskov said Wednesday that the meeting was scheduled to occur and that the Kremlin hadn't heard “any other information from our U.S. counterparts."
