Russia: Trump and Putin Probably Should Talk During Hamburg Summit

US President Donald Trump will hold his first face-to-face with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit taking place in Germany on July 7 and 8, the White House confirmed Thursday.

One goal of the president's trip, McMaster said, will be "to develop a common approach to Russian Federation".

U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters that no agenda had yet been set for the meeting, which is fraught with difficulties for Trump.

But Burns had even tougher words for Trump, accusing the president of a "dereliction of basic duty to defend the country" by refusing to further punish Russian Federation for its interference.

Reports about the resistance to Trump meeting Putin suggests that some are wanting to organize a formal meeting of the United States and Russian delegations, but without the two presidents involved.

Trump has staunchly denied that he had any contacts with Russian Federation during his campaign.

Trump's National Security Advisor HR McMaster, however, was non-committal as to whether Trump would bring up the matter of Russia's alleged involvement in last year's United States election.

"It appears that they took the warning seriously", Mattis said, referring to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying it had not launched any new chemical attacks.

He added it was necessary to seek "normalization" of dialogue between Moscow and Washington. "So it won't be different from our discussions with any other country".

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met with Trump at the White House on Tuesday in what he himself said was an attempt to "arm" the U.S. president with information ahead of his meeting with Putin.

Russian troops seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, and Russia has supported separatist militias in a bloody fight along Ukraine's eastern border. Trump was likely responding to a Washington Post report detailing Obama's response to information about Russian interference in the election.

In Warsaw, Trump will meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda and attend a summit with a dozen European and Baltic leaders devoted to the Three Seas Initiative.
