WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will hold bilateral meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping and French President Francois Hollande while in St. Petersburg, Russia, for the G20 summit, a White House official said on Tuesday.

There are no plans for a formal bilateral meeting between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the official said, noting the two presidents may speak "on the margins" of meetings held during the summit.

The official also confirmed that Obama plans to meet with civil society representatives in St. Petersburg.
