President Trump, Russia's Putin to Meet Next Week

Share

President Trump is said to be very eager to make his first meeting with Putin in Germany a high-profile one, wanting full media access and diplomatic protocols, but he is said to be facing opposition from administration officials who want him to "keep his distance".

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said the two leaders will discuss a range of issues at the global summit July 7-8 in Hamburg.

Lavrov said it was especially important that Trump and Putin had an opportunity to talk about the conflict in Syria and efforts to find a peaceful solution.

If the information on the upcoming attack is used as a pretext for the USA to attack Syrian troops, Russian Federation will respond "with dignity", Lavrov stated.

"We believe that the meeting will take place since the two presidents will be in the same city, in the same building, at the same time".

Many Republicans and some Democrats have also criticized Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, for not responding more strongly to Russia's attempts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Reactions to the movie's premiere are very encouraging with some critics calling it the best film in the Spider-Man franchise. He's just an excited kid who filmed the whole adventure and ever since has been thirsting for more Avengers action.

While it appears a meeting between the leaders is imminent, it's unclear what type of interaction it will be.

According to the Associated Press, which first broke the news on Twitter, the White House confirmed Trump and Putin's in-person meeting but didn't offer any details as to what the pair might discuss. First of all, Russophobic sentiments are harmful to the USA itself.

Trump irked the national security establishment in Washington with his routine praise for Putin during the campaign.

All 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed Russian Federation was behind last year's hack of Democratic email systems and tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Mr Trump.

Van Jones, former adviser to the Obama White House turned CNN analyst, added, "this Russian Federation thing is just a big nothing burger". "If they aim for a homerun in Hamburg, my guess is they'll strike out".
