MOSCOW - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday it was not yet known if Russian President Vladimir Putin will run for re-election when his term ends next year.

Peskov said Putin met former finance minister Alexei Kudrin to talk about a strategy for economic development up to 2024.

Asked if Kudrin was helping draft Putin's program for the next term, Peskov told reporters: "It is not yet known if Putin will run for the next presidential term."

The next six-year term expires in 2024.
