( NY POST) -He’s getting back with the man from the U.S.S.R. President Trump and Vladimir Putin have agreed to meet on Friday, according to a Kremlin adviser.

Plans for the pair’s second meeting have been taking shape during the commander-in-chief’s trip to Asia, and the meeting with the Russian president is now set for the sidelines of an upcoming summit in Vietnam, Yury Ushakov told state media on Thursday.

He said that the exact time of the rendezvous is still being worked out.

ng, saying it is “hard to overestimate the importance and significance for all international matters of any contact between the presidents of Russia and the United States.”

The longtime Russian leader and his new American counterpart met in July on the sidelines of the G20 summit, going over their alotted time and spending more than two hours together in Hamburg, Germany.

They also had another discussion at a dinner for heads of state and government later the same day.

 Discussions in Vietnam will likely centre on issues such as North Korea’s nuclear program and Syria, though the spectre hanging over any talks will be intelligence community assertions that the Kremlin meddled in the U.S. election to help Trump.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the Hamburg meeting that Trump accepted his side’s claims that they made no such interference.

Alleged meddling and potential collusion with the future President’s campaign is currently being investigated by the FBI, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and multiple congressional committees.
