Trump's one-on-one talks with Putin to include election meddling, ambassador says

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov left listens to U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby R-Ala. third right during his meeting with U.S. congressional delegation as U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr. attends the talks in Moscow Russia Tuesday July

The senior administration official stressed that while U.S. officials have "repeatedly" raised election meddling in meetings with Russian officials, "the fact of the matter is we have not had the kinds of conversations, direct conversations, across the table conversations about things like election meddling and malign activity that really do need to take place".

Trump has denied that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and has repeated that Putin has denied involvement in the USA electoral process.

Huntsman cited Trump's meeting earlier this month with North Korean Kim Jong Un as having "reduced tension on the Korean Peninsula", and said that any reduction in tension with Russian Federation "would be on a much bigger scale".

The EU slapped sanctions on Russian Federation in July and September 2014 in response to an alleged role that Russian Federation had played in conflicts in east Ukraine.

The U.S. ambassador to Russia confirmed Thursday that President Donald Trump will have a one-on-one meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland later this month.

Spanning both events is the biannual Farnborough air show in the United Kingdom, where defense companies and allied nations toggle between the welcome news of increased European defense spending and deeper cooperation against the Russian threat, and the conflicting messages sent from Washington over its commitments to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and existing trade agreements.

Upstate NY heat wave: Another brutal day with 'limited relief' from storms
Monday looks like the best chance at scattered storms, at around a 40% chance of any given community getting rain. As warm and unstable as we will be, you can bet showers will begin to fire with the peak heat of the afternoon.

"You can't solve problems if you're not talking about them", Huntsman said. "We're entering with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort". He referred to Chancellor Angela Merkel, saying: "And I said, 'You know, Angela, I can't guarantee it, but we're protecting you and it means a lot more to you than protecting us 'cause I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you".

We will remind, the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs Elena zerkal expects when meeting the US President Donald trump, and Vladimir Putin will discuss the issue of releasing Ukrainian political prisoners.

On the issue of arms control, the official said the United States intends to raise Russian violations of the INF arms treaty during the meeting and discuss the fate of arms control agreements between the two countries.

Her comments come just weeks after Trump charged that America is "the piggy bank that (NATO) likes to take from", and "we like to help out, but it helps them, they're in Europe". He is due to arrive in Helsinki the evening of July 15 for meetings the next morning with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

The summit will include a one-on-one sit down followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with advisers and a working lunch.
