Russia’s Security Council secretary, Nikolai Patrushev, plans to meet U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton when he travels to Moscow on October 22-23, RIA news agency cited a Russian source as saying on Friday, Reuters reported.

“On October 20th I’ll be travelling to Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia to meet with my counterparts and other senior officials to advance American interests on a range of security issues,” Bolton tweeted on Friday.

According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswomen Maria Zakharova, “the possibility of a meeting between Bolton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is also being considered.”

Bolton and Patrushev met twice this year, once in June in Moscow, when they discussed the preparations for the summit between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, and the second time they met was in August in Geneva.
