Today's Irish Times reports that James Reilly has asked Praveen Halappanavar to meet him.
Savita's husband had been seeking such a meeting after Minister Reilly referred the report of the HSE investigation into her death to the Irish Medical Council and the Irish Nursing and Midwifery Board.
Meanwhile, candlelight vigils are being held this evening to mark the first anniversary of Savita Halappanavar's death.
The 31-year-old died a year ago in Galway University Hospital from septicaemia.
She had been miscarrying and had asked for a termination, but had been told it was not possible.
This evening's memorial vigils will be held at the top of Grafton Street in Dublin, Eyre Square in Galway and at the Opera House in Cork from 6pm until 7.
