Putin ready to meet Trump in Finland if it hosts summit

31 March, 2017, 02:03 | Author: Essie Rivera

"I'm encouraged by reports of peaceful demonstrations across Russia against the corrupt, autocratic regime in Moscow", Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) said in a statement in which he also took aim at the Russian president.

He is to go to the northern Russian city of Arkhangelsk on Thursday for the worldwide meeting on how to develop the inhospitable Arctic ocean. "You go and ask them why", Putin offered the audience at the meeting.

Russian President Vladimir Putin reached into the annals of American history to deny meddling with the 2016 presidential election.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said he would be ready to meet US President Donald Trump at the upcoming summit of Arctic countries in Finland, if the talks are properly prepared.

"We are seeing what's going on".

"I'd like to tell these people that we perceive and regard the United States as a great power with which we want to establish good partnership relations", Mr Putin said, according to the news network. Putin hopes that the situation will normalize, "the sooner, the better".

"We hear these endless and groundless accusations of some kind of interference".

There are also similar probes from the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee.

Rouhani hints at 'big development in energy cooperations' between Russian Federation and Iran
The Russian president, for his part, said Iran was a good neighbor and a stable and reliable partner for his country. Officially, matters relating to diplomatic, judicial and economic sectors are to be finalised during the visit.

Committee member and Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner said Putin "ordered a deliberate campaign carefully constructed to undermine our election". Putin quoted George Bush Sr., who at the Republican National Convention in 1988 said, "read my lips, no new taxes". "Read my lips: no", he repeated, speaking in English for the final word.

He also warned that the escalation of tensions would contradict American interests.

The U.S. State Department strongly condemned the detention of hundreds of peaceful protesters throughout Russian Federation.

Foremost among these: Russian Federation wants to begin normalizing relations with the West, and sees the Arkhangelsk conference as a step in that direction (recall the formal name of this event is "The Arctic - Territory of Dialogue"). We don't want to compete with the U.S.: "We all know that the U.S. spends more on defense than the rest of the world", continued Putin.

"Isn't it nonsense?" he said.

"Now there are some questions raised regarding the meetings with our bankers". "Don't American businessmen come here and speak to our representatives, including Russian government officials?" Otherwise how can they work? "Of course they do".

In 2014, the European Union and the United States introduced several rounds of anti-Russia sanctions over Moscow's alleged involvement in the internal crisis in Ukraine.
