Trump, Putin meet at G20 Summit

On the sideline of the G20 Summit, US President Donald Trump opened Friday discussion by pressing the Russian President about “the concerns of the American people regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election”.

However, President Putin denied such involvement. The two leaders showed different point of view on how to tackle North Korea’s nuclear test. Washington said it will continue to urge Moscow to curb Pyongyang’s actions.

The Russian and US leaders agreed to work on solving the Ukrainian crisis, and a US representative would visit Russia for consultations on the issue, according to Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Both agreed on a ceasefire in southwestern Syria, which will take effect on Sunday, Lavrov said.
