Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted Thailand’s invitation to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Bangkok next month, Bangkok Post reported, citing an unidentified security official. 

Thailand’s Foreign Ministry has asked security agencies to make security arrangement for the Nov. 18-19 meeting, the newspaper said. While US President Joe Biden will send a representative for the meeting, Chinese President Xi Jinping’s attendance is still pending confirmation, it said.
