MOSCOW: Russia and the U.S. have agreed to hold a summit between President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump in a “third country”, Presidential aide Yury Ushakov said Wednesday.
“We will announce the date and the place together with our American colleagues tomorrow. The summit will be held in the third country,” Ushakov told journalists on the sidelines of Putin’s meeting with Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton in the Russian capital.
Bolton arrived Wednesday and he also met Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Later, addressing reporters at the White House, Trump said the meeting would probably take place around the time of his trip to Europe where he will meet with NATO leaders July 11-12 in Brussels, Belgium.
Trump said he will discuss Ukraine and Syria with his Russian counterpart.
“I have said it from day one: getting along with Russia and with China and with everybody is a very good thing. It’s good for the world. It’s good for us. It’s good for everybody,” Trump said.–AA
