‘We have lots to discuss’, said Trump in meeting with Putin

“We have lots to discuss,” U.S President Trump said after meeting with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan.

Flanked by their diplomatic teams, Trump and Putin made brief statements to the press before shaking hands and beginning closed-door talks.

Trump said the agenda would include trade and disarmament, expressing confidence that “a lot of very positive things are going to come out of the relationship” with Russia.

Putin noted that while the two leaders hadn’t spoken face-to-face since the Helsinki summit last summer, US and Russian officials have been consulting with one another over the past year. The meeting in Osaka, Putin remarked, will allow the two leaders to “follow up” on discussions that have been taking place over the past 12 months.
