Putin, Merkel invited to attend Petersburg Dialogue forum

Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were invited to attend this year’s Petersburg Dialogue forum due on July 18-20 in Germany’s Petersberg, a municipality near Bonn, the General-Anzeiger Bonn newspaper reported, citing own sources.

According to the paper, the attendance of the two leaders may serve as a starting point for a new period of Russian-German relations, because Putin and Merkel did not attend the forum’s sessions since Crimea’s reunification with Russia in 2014.

General-Anzeiger Bonn said that in line with diplomatic procedures, an invitation to state leaders is sent only when the probability of a positive answer is high.
