Rudy Giuliani told the Associated Press Thursday night that his client President Donald Trump will not answer questions from special counsel Robert Mueller about obstruction of justice.

Giuliani indicated that President Donald Trump refuses to answer Mueller's questions either in person or in writing.

"That's a no-go. That is not going happen", Giuliani said.

Mueller is also investigating whether Trump may have tried to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation after winning office, but Giuliani said on Thursday that no questions on the obstruction issue would be part of the first round of questions.

Lawyers for Trump have been negotiating over a potential interview with Mueller's team since a year ago in the USA investigation of Russian meddling in the presidential election, which Moscow denies.

"It would be in written form and if you want to follow up on our answers, justify it", Giuliani said.

Spy chief says Britain, allies will counter active Russian threat
She told reporters that Britain will be discussing next steps with its allies, stressing that the issue goes beyond Salisbury . Security minister Ben Wallace said Mr Putin bore ultimate responsibility for the action of his intelligence agents.

"I'm hopeful that maybe we're going to get a yes, in which case we can probably move forward with written questions and see if that doesn't satisfy them and satisfy us", he added.

The announcement puts an end to the weeks-long speculation surrounding the request from the special counsel that the president answer questions about his investigation into Russian election interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign.

Giuliani has described a possible interview with Mueller as a potential "perjury trap", an opportunity to catch Trump making a false statement under oath, and legal experts have also suggested that Trump could open himself up to trouble.

In the latest letter to the legal team, Mueller's office didn't address obstruction questions, indicating investigators would later assess what additional information it needs from the president after receiving a response about the written submissions, according to a person familiar with the document. There has been "no further commitment on interviews", he said.

Mueller's team raised the prospect in March that it could subpoena the president, though this would unquestionably prompt a court fight.

Trump has said he knew nothing about the meeting before it happened.
