President Trump to Meet President Putin in Europe in July
US President Donald Trump is planning to meet with Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, in Europe next month, either before the NATO Summit in Brussels on 11 July or after his visit to the UK on 13 July, the plans are not final.
The White House declined to comment.
President Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, declined to comment on a conference call with reporters on Thursday.
But it is know that the Kremlin expects US National Security Adviser John Bolton to visit Russia next week to discuss preparations for the Summit.
President Trump has keen interest in restoring President Putin’s place in the international community.
At the G-7 summit in Quebec earlier this month, he proposed that Russia should be re-admitted to the Group of Eight countries, which was reduced to a Group of Seven following Russia’s annexation of Crimea in Y 2014.
President Trump has seldom criticized Russia or President Putin and downplayed allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election, the relationship between Moscow and Washington has been dicey since he took office.
“You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run,” President Trump said. “And in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out. They should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”
President Trump is a businessman and having Russia back is good business.
