Will talk about Syria, Ukraine, poll tampering with Putin: Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin at the opening of the G20 summit in July 2017 in Hamburg

"In establishing that line of communication the president has very much in mind he wants to understand the Russian position and perhaps more importantly he wants Vladimir Putin to understand our positions", he continued.

Just days after Western leaders meet in Brussels on July 11, Trump is due to fly to Helsinki for his first one-on-one summit on July 16 with Putin.

They had previously met on the sidelines of a G-20 gathering in Germany and an Asian Pacific conference in Vietnam previous year. "Germany has to spend more money, Spain, France, it's not fair what they've done to the United States", he said, adding that the USA is paying much more disproportionately to anyone else. We are going to talk about the election. We don't want anybody tampering with elections.

"In a statement issue earlier this week, Kremlin had said, "(The) two leaders will discuss the current state and prospects of further development of the Russian-US relations and also vital issues of the worldwide agenda".

Last week, Trump tweeted: "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".

"The main rationale to have a bilateral meeting between Trump and Putin: let them discuss these issues and see exactly where there might be room for progress, or where they might find there's no room at all", Bolton said.

The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

Erdogan set to strengthen grip on power after Turkish election win
Local and global rights groups accuse the government of using the coup bid as a pretext to silence opposition in the country. Erdogan now faces into a further five years in power, while his AK party and its allies secured a parliamentary majority.

Putin last month said patriotic Russian hackers may have staged cyber attacks against countries that had strained relations with Moscow and denied state intervention - a departure from the Kremlin's previous denials of any Russian interference.

Intelligence agencies believe Russian hackers influenced the 2016 election in favor of Trump and that the Kremlin is trying to have a similar affect on the 2018 contest.

Asked by reporters on Air Force One whether reports about him dropping Washington's longstanding opposition to the annexation were true, Trump said, "We're going to have to see".

The Obama administration, along with the European Union and individual allied countries, imposed sanctions on Russian Federation over Crimea, and even members of Trump's Cabinet have said they will not be lifted until the situation is resolved.

Bolton simply said tat a "direct conversation" between the two leaders is an important starting point.

During the Singapore summit, however, "Kim Jong Un said to me: The two of us have to get a picture together".
