The US President Donald trump called the Russian leader Vladimir Putin rival. About it reports Reuters.
The question is whether the Russian President is an enemy or friend, Trump asked before he went to Europe for a NATO summit and then at a meeting with Putin. “I can’t tell now, he is the opponent,” — said the American leader.
Before 10 July trump called “stupid” his advisers who advised him not to call his Russian counterpart.
Before Putin praised the American leader, because he fulfills the promises made during the election campaign.
The leaders of Russia and USA will meet in the Finnish capital Helsinki on July 16. It was reported that they intend to discuss the prospects of further development of relations between Moscow and Washington, as well as topical issues on the international agenda. Trump is going to talk with Putin about the conflict in Syria and Ukraine, the alleged Moscow’s intervention in the American elections and other.
This will be the first full meeting of the two presidents without reference to the summits. Year ago heads of state met for the first time in Hamburg on the sidelines of the G20, and then had a short conversation in Vietnam at the APEC summit.
