No Private Meeting for Presidents Trump and Putin in Vietnam
US President Donald Trump will not have a separate meeting with Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Vietnam, the White House said Friday.
Presidents Trump and Putin are both attending the APEC Summit in the Vietnamese city of Danang.
“Regarding a Putin meeting, there was never a meeting confirmed, and there will not be one that takes place due to scheduling conflicts on both sides,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters minutes before landing in Danang.
“Now, they’re going to be in the same place. Are they going to bump into each other and say hello? Certainly possible and likely. But in terms of a scheduled, formal meeting, there’s not one on the calendar and we don’t anticipate that there will be one,” Ms. Sanders said
Have a terrific weekend
