Putin wants to pay separate visit to France

PARIS. Nov 11 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised to pay a separate visit to France.

"I wanted to visit and I want to do this," Putin said in an interview with RT France.

"Today there are 90 heads of state and government here in Paris. It is quite difficult to move around the city. To avoid creating additional problems for the hosting party, this time around [a separate visit] won't happen. But in general, I will gladly do so," Putin said.
