·1-min read

The Kremlin says what it calls constructive talks between Moscow's and Washington's top diplomats are a "positive signal" for holding a potential summit between President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken held talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Iceland on Wednesday.

Both stressed their countries have serious differences, but can still find ways to work together.

Speaking to reporters on a conference call on Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the talks between Lavrov and Blinken would help Moscow decide on the possibility of holding a summit.

Peskov said Moscow would analyse the talks before Putin made any decision on meeting Biden.
