PARIS, June 6 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Valdimir Putin met on Friday as world leaders commemorate the D-Day landings in Normandy, north France.

With no scheduled formal meeting, local news channel BFMTV reported Obama held talks with Putin after French president Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel brought together Russian and Ukrainian leaders for the first time in the Chateau de Benouville.

Situation in Ukraine and eventual ways to ease tension in the eastern country topped the ten-minute talk, the report added.

After a meeting of G7 leaders in Brussels, from which Russia was excluded, Obama on Thurssday said Putin "has a chance to get back into a lane of international law" by recognizing Ukraine's new President-elect Petro Poroshenko, and ceasing support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.
