Vladimir Putin's spokesman says the Russian president is to meet U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday.

Putin is to speak to the United Nations General Assembly that day. It was not immediately clear whether the meeting with Obama would take place before or after the speech.

Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that Putin also plans to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the same day.
