President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke briefly Friday after both leaders appeared to consciously be avoiding each other during the D-Day anniversary celebrations in France.
The highly anticipated face-to-face conversation was the first time the two spoke in person since Russia’s incursion into Ukraine earlier this year, which brought U.S condemnation.
Obama and Putin chatted for between 10 and 15 minutes at a lunch for world leaders, according to deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes.
“It was an informal conversation – not a formal bilateral meeting,” Rhodes said, downplaying the brief interaction.
