16.07.2018Finland: Trump-Putin Summit *** ARCHIVE


16 JULY 2018

The Presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, will meet in Helsinki on Monday, 16 July. The meeting will be hosted by the President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö.

The last brief meeting the two leaders had was on the sidelines of an Asia–Pacific summit in November last year. President Trump said on Wednesday that "getting along with Russia and with China and with everybody is a very good thing" and added that he would discuss the war in Syria and the situation in Ukraine with his Russian counterpart. President Putin said on Wednesday that his meeting with US National Security Adviser John Bolton had raised hopes for a full restoration of relations, insisting that Moscow had never sought confrontation. According to the Russian President, the poor state of relations was a result of fierce political confrontation inside the US itself.
