Putin and Cameron discuss Russian plane crash, joint fight against terror

The conversation took place at the British request

 In a telephone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron Russian President Vladimir Putin said that in assessing the causes of the A321 plane crash in Egypt one should use data that will be clarified during the ongoing official investigation, the Kremlin press office said.

The leaders exchanged their views on the situation around the Russian plane crash on the Sinai Peninsula. They also discussed issues concerning the joint fight against international terrorism.

The conversation took place at the British request.

Kremlin expects that the contacts between Putin and Cameron will continue within the G20 summit, Russia's Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters later.

"Generally, we are expecting that they will have contacts in the course of the oncoming international events, within the G20 in a week. This will be a good opportunity. And as for the rest, as often as required," Peskov said when asked whether one should expect any extension to the phone talks between Putin and Cameron and if the leaders agreed on any further contacts.

When asked if Moscow had received any proposals from other national leaders to discuss the situation around the crash of the Russian A321, he said: "No, not yet".
