Putin summit kicks off in Helsinki

"Presidents Trump and Putin respect each other and they get along well", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

During the same phone call, Trump congratulated Putin on his recent reelection, ignoring notes from aides that warned "DO NOT CONGRATULATE", according to the Washington Post.

"I think we have a lot of foes".

"I think the world wants to see us get along".

The summit is scheduled to last 90 minutes, but will include only translators.

"What vehicle will Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] use to move around Helsinki?" an interviewer for pro-Kremlin broadcaster RT asked Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov in an interview published Monday.

Putin and Trump are holding a historic summit in Helsinki on Monday.

In TV interview, Trump says queen called Brexit 'complex'
When asked if he felt the Queen liked him, he said: "Well I don't want to speak for her, but I can tell you I liked her". President Donald Trump hold a joint press conference. "I think we could probably get along very well".

"The president seems ready to sweep all of the hard issues under the carpet, even the Russian military buildup that was displayed in that video with all these new "wonder weapons" that Putin's very excited about", Vershbow said.

The two will talk about "everything from trade to military to missiles to China".

US President Donald Trump will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: "Do you know which team you play for?"

But after being asked about that by his interviewer, Trump said "certainly I'll be asking about it" although extradition is highly unlikely.

Vladimir Putin said: "The time has come to talk in a substantive way about our relations and problem areas of the world".

He said that Russian Federation is a foe "in certain respects" and that China is a foe "economically ... but that doesn't mean they are bad".

Putin kept Trump waiting a full hour before the summit. The first ladies met separately over breakfast while their husbands held talks.

There is no religion, there is nothing, and that's what feels good". "It unites everyone. It federates", Frederique Pourquet said as she and her friend left the Champs-Elysees.

He also blamed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Moscow's election interference for poor relations between the USA and Russian Federation, rather than the Kremlin activities that the Department of Justice began probing in 2016.

In his tweets, Trump continued to undermine the investigation and blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for failing to stop Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election in Trump's favour.

And while Macron and Trump probably have one of the strongest relationships among world leaders, the French president was critical of Trump's decision to raise tariffs on the European Union and disagreed with the American president's assertion that Germany is a captive of Russian Federation. The state RIA news agency quoted a Russian source as saying Moscow was "ready to discuss, ready to undertake mutual obligations of non-intervention into internal matters".

Most in the West see Russian Federation as the main antagonist, pointing chiefly to its 2008 war against Georgia, the 2014 seizure and annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, and Moscow's military support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship. But this time, the source said, Trump told Putin the video was "outrageous".

The Justice Department on Friday announced the indictment of 12 Russian military officers who are accused of stealing Democratic emails and attempting to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election. "But I will absolutely firmly ask the question".

Observers have raised concerns about the fact that the leaders will be alone during their first meeting, but for a pair of interpreters, meaning there will be no corroborating witnesses to accurately represent what was said during the conversation.
