President Obama isn't scheduled to meet with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin this week in Europe, but two U.S. allies are.

The office of British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he will meet with Putin this week after they attend events in Normandy to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings Friday.

Cameron's 10 Downing St. office said talks between the British and Russian leaders are a chance to "to set out the importance of a dialogue between the Russian government and the new Ukrainian government," according to the Associated Press.

Obama will attend the D-Day anniversary event but doesn't have Putin on his schedule. The American and Russian presidents have had a tense relationship, made worse by Russia's actions in eastern Ukraine.

"We don't have any plans for a bilateral meeting with President Putin, so we're not anticipating the two leaders will have any type of formal meeting," said Ben Rhodes, deputy White House national security adviser. "Clearly, they will be in the same place, attending the leaders lunch and then the ceremony, so they will certainly have cause to interact in that context."
