The United States has discussed five energy summits with Russia

The United States said on Monday it had talked with Russia about convening a five-member UN Security Council to convene a summit of key members of the Security Council.


US Secretary of State Mike Pompey and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed in a telephone call on inviting P5 leaders in the near future to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.

Putin wants such a summit to be brought in line with US President Donald Trump, who will die before the Republican reunion in November.

The summit was also attended by Chinese President Xi Jinping, with whom US relations are deteriorating, as well as French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The statement did not say when or where the five summits would take place.

Trump was heard separately inviting Putin to the Washington area for a wide-ranging summit of the Group of Seven Industrial Democracies.

Under Putin, Moscow's role in the victory of World War II over Nazi Germany in 1945 dominated much of the historical debate, and they complained that the West had reduced Soviet writings.

He called for a summit stating that the COVID-19 pandemic would be discussed, an opinion he wrote for the American magazine The National Interest last month.

As part of efforts to support Putin ahead of the July 1 referendum, some analysts say the Russians have given him the right to stay in power until 2036.

The State Department said it was upset with the conduct of the vote, but did not mention Pavero's statement with Lavrov on the call.

However, Pompey said the two discussed Afghanistan and increased election security.

Washington has insisted on reports that Russia has given intelligence rewards to Taliban-linked fighters for killing American forces in Afghanistan.

In support of Trump, who has backed the allegations, he called on Russia to intervene in the 2016 election and forge better relations with Putin.
