MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin would be comfortable holding a one-on-one meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump at their upcoming summit in Helsinki, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

Putin may start the summit with a meeting with Trump if Washington confirms that, Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

The Kremlin said Putin did not plan to meet U.S. lawmakers who are visiting Russia this week.
