  • Kremlin Aide Says Time, Place for Putin-Trump Summit Set

Preparations for a potential Russian-US summit is among the issues brought up by US National Security Adviser John Bolton at his current meetings in Moscow, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed on Wednesday.

"This meeting has been planned for a long time", said Ushakov. "It has enormous importance for Russian Federation and America, but it [also] has huge importance for the whole global situation".

"It was especially useful precisely in the context of preparing a summit meeting [between Trump and Putin]", Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said.

But the USA president is known to want to improve ties between the two nations and earlier this month he said Russian Federation should be readmitted to the G7 group of industrialised nations.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was likely to meet his US counterpart Mike Pompeo beforehand, he added. In Washington, Trump said their meeting likely would take place after a July 11-12 summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders he is due to attend. A senior USA official said on Tuesday that Finland's capital Helsinki was being considered as a location.

The summit will include one-on-one talks between the presidents along with a broader session and conclude with a joint news conference, Ushakov said.

U.S. - Russian relations have been strained for years over disagreements about Syria, Russia's actions in Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea.

"I can say that an agreement has been reached on holding the summit, even an agreement on the time and venue".

A special prosecutor in the United States has indicted Russian firms and individuals for meddling in the presidential election to benefit Trump, and is investigating whether anyone in Trump's campaign helped the Russian effort.

He also said Trump and Putin would likely discuss Trump's recent calls for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G7.

Mr Lavrov has said previously that Moscow "is ready for contacts" with the US.

The Kremlin confirmed that bilateral ties were paramount in discussions with Putin, though among other conversation points were the hosting of the FIFA World Cup - ongoing now in Russian Federation, and soon to move to North America - and geopolitical concerns.

Aware that his own visit and the summit will draw criticism from some quarters, Bolton stressed the importance of talking to each other despite disagreements. "Right now I'm an adviser to President Trump, it's his agenda we're pursuing", Bolton told reporters. He noted the policy and political differences between Moscow and Washington, but underlined Trump's strong belief that the summit will serve American interests.

Mr Bolton said that he would like to hear Mr Putin's account of "how you handled the World Cup so successfully" in anticipation of the USA co-hosting the 2026 World Cup.

Trump on Wednesday listed Syria and Ukraine among the many subjects he said they would discuss at the summit.

But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told USA lawmakers on Wednesday that Washington regards Russia's annexation of Crimea, intervention in Ukraine and partial occupation of Georgia as entirely illegal.

He added that when Moscow and Washington had differences in the past, Russian and USA leaders still met.
