The Kremlin said Friday that President Vladimir Putin's meeting with French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in Moscow was standard practice as are meetings with other opposition figures.

"At the start of the meeting, the president himself said that Russia is ready to stay in contact with representatives of all political forces, with the current leadership, with representatives of the opposition -- this is normal practice," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
