White House: Patrushev and Bolton to meet in Geneva last week
U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton will meet with his Russian counterpart Nikolay Patrushev next week in Geneva for follow-up discussions on issues raised at the Helsinki summit, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
After meeting officials in Israel and Ukraine, Bolton will head to Geneva to meet with an unnamed Russian representative to "discuss a range of national security issues," Sanders said.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said earlier that a meeting between Bolton and secretary of the Security Council Nikolay Patrushev could happen "by the end of the summer."
News of the meeting comes just hours after the website of the Congress published the text of a “sanctions bill from hell” proposed by some of the most outspokenly anti-Russian US Senators.
