On the sidelines of the UN international climate conference, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a joint meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

 

It is known that Putin and Merkel spoke privately, and only then did Juncker join the conversation.

 

The talks lasted about one and a half hours behind closed doors, Tass reports.

 

Earlier, experts assumed that they had discussed the Ukrainian and Syrian crises at the meeting.
