Following a phone call Friday night from Russian President Vladimir Putin to President Obama, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is now heading to Paris where he will meet his Russian counterpart to discuss a possible “diplomatic resolution” to the Ukraine crisis.
“Secretary Kerry will travel from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Paris, France today in advance of a to-be-scheduled meeting with Russian foreign minister Lavrov early next week in Europe,” State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said on Saturday.
The move follows a series of phone calls—first from Putin to Obama then between Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and Kerry—seemingly easing the tensions between the world powers. The two could meet as early as Sunday.
