Kremlin: Meeting between Putin and Trump May Take Place at G20 Summit in Hamburg
The information about a possible meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump at the G-20 summit in Hamburg was announced by presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov on June 7.
According to the press secretary of the Russian president, the date of the meeting has not yet been agreed upon, and its format implies the absence of a traditional statement for media.
Earlier on May 2, during a telephone conversation between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, an agreement was reached to organize a personal meeting within the framework of the G20 summit.
However, it should be noted that US Ambassador to Russia John F. Tefft said that there is no agreement on a meeting of Russian and US leaders at the summit in Germany.
It should also be recalled that only two top-level meetings were held within the framework of the new Russian-American relations: between Russian President Vladimir Putin (jointly with Sergey Lavrov) and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow on April 12 and between US President Donald Tramp and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Washington on May 10. Both meetings were closed and passed without representatives of the media.
