"Serbia would probably make the best place for such a meeting. We have passed our proposal to both sides, they will now decide if a meeting takes place at all.

"Many countries have been taking advantage of Serbia’s position and holding dialogue on our territory," TASS cited the Serbian top diplomat as saying.

U.S. President Donald Trump proposed meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington when they spoke by phone on March 20, presidential aide Yury Ushakov said.

"If everything goes well, I hope that Americans will not change their mind about their proposal to discuss the possibility of holding a meeting. When our presidents spoke on the phone, Trump suggested having the meeting in Washington at the White House.

"This is quite an interesting, positive idea," Kremlin foreign policy aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters.
