Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin will meet alone at the summit because the president decided that this is the right time for direct communication, saidMr. Huntsman. He wrote the leaders of Denmark, Norway, Canada and Germany last month to ratchet up the pressure, saying "the United States is increasingly unwilling to ignore the European failure to meet shared security commitments".

"You know, I think the fact that we're having a summit at this level, at this time in history, is a deliverable in itself", said Huntsman, adding that he "wouldn't underplay at all the importance of actually sitting down for the first time in a meeting-summit environment and discussing the issues that really matter most". In the afternoon, he will have a one-on-one meeting with Putin, followed by an expanded bilateral meeting and a working lunch before he departs for Washington.
