Yuri Ushakov, advisor to the Russian president, reported that the leaders of Russia and the US would conduct a “substantial meeting” on the sidelines of the G20 summit which will be held from November 30th to December 1st in Argentina.
Ushakov added that the planned meeting between Trump and Putin on November 11th in Paris would be short. The presidents of Russian and the US will fly to the French capital for the commemoration of the 100-year anniversary from the end of the First World War
The White House has not yet commented on Ushakov’s statement.
Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton stated this week after his visit to Moscow that the White House sent Putin a formal invitation to visit Washington in 2019.
Trump and Putin have not met since the summit that occurred in July in Helsinki. After this meeting, the US President was criticized by many American politicians. In part, Trump was blamed for trying to “please” Putin.
