No ‘specific agenda,’ but Trump, Putin have lots to discuss
WASHINGTON – The first face-to-face meeting with President Donald Trump Russian President Vladimir Poutine this week is going to be overwhelmed with global intrigues, but the White House says there is no specific agenda. So, in the absence of a number of issues, we are two of the most famous world leaders to discuss unpredictable?
Trump, who prefers to have carefully packaged achievements to pair with high-level meetings, perhaps in search of some concessions to Russia to prove that he made progress and helps restore a productive relationship between the two powers. Putin certainly wants something in return, and there is a long list of irritants between the two countries that they could solve.
Following the meeting, the White House National Security Council and State Department officials discussed possible actions that the United States could offer Russia within the framework of the meeting, said a former and former administration official. They were not allowed to comment publicly and ask for anonymity.
However, any external sign of cordiality between Trump and Putin immediately captured by critics of the president and the Russian hawks eager to show surrounding the Russian leader. Ongoing investigations into Russia’s interference in the US election and potential Trump collusion campaign will not be far from anyone’s mind.
The two leaders will sit in Hamburg, Germany, under the Group of 20. Before the meeting, Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak met in Washington on Monday to prepare US diplomat 3, Thomas Shannon.
Trump has been reluctant to publicly and directly recognize the role of Russia in the interference of US elections, by an apparent concern, undermines the legitimacy of his victory. He also insisted there was no collusion with him or his campaign, a finding that US investigators have yet to reach.
US officials say Russia has attempted to hack into electoral systems in 21 states and influence the Trump elections, a level of interference in the US political system that security experts are a high-level threat must carry out a Blunt response from the United States. Deny this.
There is no indication that Trump is considering increasing Russia’s interference in the meeting. However, if it does not, it will give fuel to critics who say that Trump openly ignores a major threat to national security. It could also encourage those who say that Trump is trying to cover the Russians after enjoying their interference.
