MOSCOW. Nov 8 (Interfax) - The situation in Syria and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), as well as problems in the bilateral relationship could be discussed during possible talks between the presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said.

"Here, there are also the main international problems, from Syria to the DPRK, and there are very many problems in the bilateral context," Ushakov told journalists at a briefing on Wednesday.

Overall, Russian-U.S. relations are currently "in a hole, in a critical position," Ushakov said.

"There are things to discuss, and we are ready for that," he said.
