"As soon as the American side is ready this meeting would take place depending on my working schedule of course," Putin told reporters in the Chinese city of Qingdao.
"The US president himself repeatedly said that he would consider such a meeting helpful. I can confirm this. It's true," Putin said.
He said he did not discuss a possible meeting venue with Trump but "many" countries including Austria were keen to help in organising such a summit.
"But I believe it's a technical issue," he said.
"It's important for such meetings -- if they take place -- to have concrete contents."
