Russian President Vladimir Putin’s initiative to hold a summit of the United Nations Security Council’s permanent members is still on the table but no specific decisions have been made yet, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.

"Putin’s initiative concerning a summit of the UNSC five [permanent members] remains on the table," he said, adding that "such a meeting was expected to discuss major challenges." "If this is not a major challenge, then what we all are going through in Europe?" Peskov mused.

"This is why, hypothetically, the issue should be discussed at this high level," Peskov noted. "However, as for specific decisions, we will see what initiatives will follow," he said, when asked if the American initiative for the world’s key powers to discuss security issues involved the summit of the UN Security Council’s permanent members that Putin had spoken about.
