In some ways, of course, we have been here before. And we are standing behind them on that. Indeed, reports on the decline of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation have been constant over the decades, especially immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union. "That's what I can answer", Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said when asked to confirm information provided by some sources who said that agreements on the withdrawal of the Iran-backed forces from Syria could be the key issue at the upcoming meeting between the Russian and United States leaders, according to Russian TASS news agency.

President Vladimir Putin did not attend the game, but watched it remotely, saying the players were heroes despite the defeat and the country was proud of them, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was cited as saying by Interfax.

The Kremlin has confirmed that Moscow and Washington are exchanging documents containing their positions on various issues in the run-up to a meeting the leaders of the two countries - Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump - Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, commenting on a report by the newspaper Kommersant that Russian Federation allegedly sent a draft statement to the USA to be made after the summit. Don't let him deny the obvious.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told how the American President Donald trump needs to speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The White House downplayed the significance of the encounter, but experts expressed concern there was no official USA record of the talk. "Every one of our allies - 100 percent - are increasing defence spending".

Despite Trump's criticism, Ischinger said the transatlantic alliance was in its best shape in years given rising military spending and efforts to shore up defences in the Baltic states and Poland after Russia's annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014.

What this summit should be about is a handful of hard strategic and tactical challenges facing the alliance.
