Russian President Vladimir Putin is meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow, Fox News has learned.

A U.S. embassy spokesperson confirmed the meeting.

Tillerson originally was only slated to meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.

The Putin-Tillerson meeting comes ahead of an expected press conference with Tillerson and Lavrov.

Tillerson traveled to Moscow just days after the Trump administration launched missile strikes on an airbase in Syria, angering Bashar al-Assad’s allies in Moscow. The strike was in response to a chemical weapons attack earlier last week.
