His­toric Trump Putin meet­ing

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE Krem­lin says Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin’s first meet­ing with US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will take place on Fri­day in Ger­many.

Mr Putin’s for­eign af­fairs ad­viser, Yuri Ushakov, said the two lead­ers will meet on the side­lines of the G-20 sum­mit be­ing held in Ham­burg.

Mr Ushakov pre­vi­ously said the two are likely to dis­cuss the fight against ter­ror­ism, the war in Syria and the cri­sis in Ukraine.

He added that the Krem­lin also ex­pects the US to quickly re­turn the Rus­sian Em­bassy’s com­pounds, which were closed by the pre­vi­ous Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion.

He noted that Rus­sia has demon­strated a re­mark­able re­straint by re­frain­ing from a tit-for-tat re­sponse, but added that its pa­tience is run­ning out.
