US and Russian presidents plan summit

John Bolton

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

"I think question of wher it is a group of seven or eight ( G7) can be raised at private meeting (between two presidents)", Bolton said at Interfax agency.

Expectations for the outcome of any Putin-Trump summit are therefore low, even though Trump said before he was elected that he wanted to improve battered U.S. -Russia ties.

"I think we'll be talking about Syria. He does the psychological work ahead of time to think about the strengths and weaknesses of the people he's talking to". He said they would discuss Syria, Ukraine and "many other subjects". You never know about meetings what happens, right? "I've said from day one, getting along with Russian Federation and with China and with everybody is a very good thing". We had great meetings with President Xi. "I believe that to a great extent this is the result of a bitter internal political struggle in the U.S.".

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

President Trump is planning to hold a summit meeting in the near future with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Planning for the meeting was delayed amid the investigations of alleged collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation that Trump has dismissed as a "witch hunt". But what must guide his conduct of American foreign policy is the pursuit of American national interests.

Where it all went wrong for Germany at the World Cup
But, because of the way the World Cup draw works, Germany's defeat meant the Mexicans were progressing through to the next round. Hummels said the warning signs had been there after Germany lost their opening game 1-0 to Mexico.

During their meeting, Putin told Bolton that their conversation "instills hope" for a more prosperous U.S. -Russia relationship, adding that he regrets the two nations' relationship is "not in the best shape".

Presidential adviser Yuri Ushakov said talks between Kremlin officials and Trump's national security adviser Wednesday yielded the agreement on the time and venue of the summit.

Since coming to power past year, Trump has sought to improve relations with Putin amid tensions between Moscow and the West.

Bolton said he didn't discuss G8 membership with Putin but it could come up during the summit with Trump.

The summit will begin with a one-on-one meeting, with talks to last "several hours". As for date, Russian press, citing sources from Kremlin, noted that it would not be held before North Atlantic Treaty Organisation conclave scheduled for 11 and 12 July in Brussels.

Speculation has already begun regarding where the summit will take place.
