Kremlin spokesperson hints at Macron visit to St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in May.



Moscow and Paris are in touch about a possible visit by French President Emmanuel Macron to Russia next year, Reuters reported Monday.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Russia “would be glad to see French businesses” at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in May, but added that nothing had been confirmed.

“There are contacts regarding high-level participation, but I wouldn’t run ahead of myself for now,” Peskov added.

“The participation of the French side [in the forum] is in Moscow’s interests,” he said, adding that France “is a very important partner” of Russia.

Macron welcomed Russian President Vladimir Putin to Versailles in May. It was Putin’s first visit to France since November 2015.
