Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev is carrying President Vladimir Putin's reply to U.S. President Obama's letter to the United States, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said.
"He departed yesterday and is carrying the letter," Ushakov told journalists.
"There should be a meeting with the president," he added.
Ushakov declined to answer what issues would be brought up at Patrushev's expected meeting with Obama.
