Federica Mogherini, the European Union's diplomatic chief, stressed the need for dialogue following a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who made a last-minute visit to Brussels on Monday to share information on "escalating" threats from Iran.
Putin told Pompeo his recent telephone conversation with Trump raised hopes for an improvement in relations.
Putin would agree to such a meeting if formally asked, a Kremlin aide told reporters.
Putin and Pompeo have discussed the possibility of organizing a meeting between the United States and Russian leaders at the G20 summit, and Moscow is now expecting concrete proposals, Ushakov noted.
"We are ready for any contacts".
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is meeting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the pleasant Black Sea resort of Sochi Tuesday, which will be Pompeo's first visit to Russia in his current role.
Kim used the occasion to accuse the United States of acting in "bad faith" after his second summit with President Donald Trump ended in stalemate in Hanoi. Far from toeing the Washington line, the European Union foreign ministers declared their "continued support for the JCPOA, including on delivering on the benefits of the deal for the Iranian people". "And I think that our talks here today were a good step in that direction".
Pompeo underlined to Putin that Trump wanted to make "our two peoples more successful and, frankly, the world more successful, too".

Cary Joji Fukunaga is now attached as director, with Scott Z Burns hired by MGM studio to pen a new script. The insider added: "He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle".
They also discussed North Korea, which both want to see give up its nuclear weapons.
"We had a frank discussion about many issues including many places where we disagree", Pompeo said.
His inquiry had cast a pall over U.S.
Hook made the remarks after The New York Times newspaper reported that the White House is reviewing military plans that could see the deployment of up to 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack US forces or accelerate work on nuclear weapons. "It's about trying to find solutions, compromises, places where there are overlapping interests. You can make progress in unlocking some of the most hard problems that are facing us".
As well as the issue of interference in US elections, the two sides clashed over Venezuela, with Lavrov sharply criticising Washington for trying to undermine President Nicolas Maduro, who Pompeo said must step down in the face of an economic crisis and large-scale protests against his rule.
Russian Federation should now work with Ukraine's new president-elect to bring peace to eastern Ukraine, said Pompeo, adding that he wanted Moscow to free a group of captured Ukrainian sailors. A Kremlin spokesperson rejected the notion that Putin's schedule was an intentional "message" for the US administration. Both men deny wrongdoing.
At least one, British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, said he feared that unintentional escalation from the USA and Iran could spark a conflict - an unusually bold statement that appeared to assign equal culpability to Washington and Tehran.
