Trump invites Putin to meet in Washington
US President Donald Trump proposed meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington when they spoke by phone on March 20, presidential aide Yury Ushakov said.
"If everything goes well, I hope that Americans will not change their mind about their proposal to discuss the possibility of holding a meeting. When our presidents spoke on the phone, Trump suggested having the meeting in Washington at the White House. This is quite an interesting, positive idea," Kremlin foreign policy aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters.
The Kremlin official mentioned the recent expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the United States, which led to a setback in US-Russian bilateral relations.
"I hope that circumstances will allow us to discuss this topic [the meeting]. We believe that it is rather important, it is necessary not only for our countries but for the international community as a whole," Ushakov added.
