Developments on Day 165 of the Trump Administration:
Moscow Says Friday’s Putin-Trump Meeting to Be “In-Depth”
An aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared that his first face-to-face meeting with Donald Trump will be a detailed conversation.
Yuri Ushakov said on Tuesday of the meeting, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, “I think it will be a rather detailed, in-depth discussion. We hope it will be that way.”
Ushakov said there will be no joint press conference after the meeting: “Only talks are planned. We expect much. The first contact is very important and the leaders have much to discuss.”
The aide would give no details about the agenda.
The Trump Administration has been vague about the substance of the meeting. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said last week, “We have no specific agenda. It’s whatever the President wants to talk about.”
