Ahead of Summit, Trump Blames US - Not Putin - For Sour Relationship

Trump-Putin summit begins in Helsinki

Here's exactly what Trump needs to tell Putin to take control of their meeting, according to a former Reagan adviser

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin sat down for a conference in Helsinki, Finland on Monday to talk about a broad range of topics and bilateral ties after Trump denounced former US-Russia policy.

After meeting one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin for more than two hours - a first for an American president - President Trump seemed to side with Putin over USA intelligence agencies on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

When the summit finally began, Trump had a very different approach.

Rosenstein also risked angering Russian President Vladimir Putin by claiming his country's GRU - equivalent to the Central Intelligence Agency - then spread the stolen documents online.

The spokesman said the Government remained committed to "constructive dialogue" with Washington over steel tariffs, after Mr Trump described the European Union as "a foe" of the United States in trade terms.

"We are the two great nuclear powers", the USA president added.

But he added: "I think we will have an extraordinary relationship".

"Trump furious over leaks and blames media for complicating meeting with Putin", says another.

"I think the world wants to see us get along". That's because talks between the US and Russian Federation could be viewed by Putin's inner circle as evidence Washington is finally willing to recognize Moscow as a great power on the worldwide stage.

But Trump has insisted it is "a good thing to meet".

The summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin kicked off Monday, with Trump beginning by congratulating Russia on hosting a "really great World Cup".

The meeting comes just days after a United States federal grand jury indicted 12 Russian intelligence operatives for allegedly hacking Democratic Party emails in order to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Ahead of the meeting, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told broadcaster RT that the men had no strict agenda but recognise their "special responsibility" for global stability.

Following his face-to-face talks with Mr Putin, the USA president criticised the probe into alleged meddling as "a disaster for our country", adding: "There was no collusion at all - everybody knows it".
