Putin and Trump Will Not Discuss Crimea, Kremlin Says

With the summit between the two leaders, Putin will get praises from his counterpart thus significantly improving his and Russia's image after annexing Crimea, military conflict in Syria, and tampering with the United States elections, all that happened in the last few years. "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.

"I think the president will have to pursue that further and I think that's one reason why he and President Putin need to have this conversation", he said, adding that "Vladimir Putin is the one who makes the decisions and I think our leader needs to speak with him".

We talk about Ukraine, we're going to talk about Syria.

He gave a similar answer when he was asked if he would lift the sanctions on Russian Federation.

"We're going to talk about Ukraine, we're going to be talking about Syria".

He tweeted Thursday that, "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".

Kennedy said he has informed his colleagues and Trump of his plans, and that his retirement will take effect at the end of July. At least Fallon has more faith than most in Trump's ability to make the best selection for our nation.

Other contentious issues are also likely to come up in the meeting, which will mark the third time the two presidents meet but their first official summit.

United States allies who want to isolate Putin, such as Britain, or who are concerned about Trump's attitude towards Russian Federation are likely to be irritated by such a summit.

The tweet reopened the question of whether Trump would broach the issue with Putin during their highly anticipated summit next month in Helsinki. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is probing whether Trump campaign officials participated in the Russian interference.

Peskov explained that President Vladimir Putin is ready to discuss "all the other questions" in the "search for potential common ground". He has also dubiously claimed that it was Democrats who colluded with Russian Federation during the election instead of him - though it's also not clear if he actually believes Russian Federation meddled at all, since he once again implied on Thursday that he believed the Kremlin's denials (over the unequivocal conclusions of the USA intelligence community). "Show him the evidence you've got, Mr. President, because it's overwhelming".

"We're going to have to see", Trump said when asked directly about the issue by reporters, Radio Free Europe reported.

On June 29, Trump declined to rule out recognizing Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula. "That's not the position of the United States", he told CBS on July 1.
