Moscow meeting paves the way for Donald Trump to meet Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin Donald Trump

"I don't think it's unusual for President Trump and President Putin to meet", Bolton told reporters in Moscow.

The meeting could follow White House national security advisor John Bolton's visit to Moscow this week.

Ushakov said the summit would take place in a mutually-convenient third country and that several more weeks were needed for preparations.

Trump is due to participate in the July 11-12 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels before heading to Britain to meet Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.

Wade when he decides who to nominate to the federal bench. "Throughout his almost 30 years on the Supreme Court", Mr. He responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking", adding it would be "inappropriate to discuss".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was likely to meet his US counterpart Mike Pompeo beforehand, he added.

In Moscow, Bolton told a news conference that the idea that a summit would prove some kind of "nexus between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin" would be "complete nonsense".

Trump first brought up his proposal during the annual G7 summit in Canada earlier this month, also reportedly suggesting Crimea was part of Russia because the people there spoke Russian.

Although personally Trump has claimed he wants to improve ties with Russia, the relationship has only deteriorated owing to evidence of Russian involvement in several incidents of varying nature which the US has repeatedly responded to with sanctions.

Pompeo told a Senate committee that Trump would emphasize during any meeting with Putin that Russian meddling in USA elections was unacceptable. "There are a lot of issues to talk about that have accumulated, and I think this was one of the reasons why President Trump believed so strongly that it was time to have this kind of meeting".

Since then, already poor ties between Washington and Moscow have deteriorated further over the conflict in Syria and the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain which sparked big diplomatic expulsions in both countries.

One topic that did not surface at the Bolton meeting, according to the Kremlin: Sanctions on Russian Federation over its activities in Ukraine and its USA election activities. "The president recognizes there may be some criticism of this decision to have the meeting".
