  • World Leaders Meet For NATO Summit In Brussels

Russian President Vladimir Putin regards U.S. President Donald Trump as a negotiation partner at their upcoming talks in Helsinki, the Kremlin said Friday.

Trump also reiterated an earlier comment he made about this trip, saying of his meetings with America's European and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and then Russia's leader, "Putin may be the easiest of them all".

"In light of today's indictment, and if the President is going to persist in attending a summit with Vladimir Putin, he must take the forceful but necessary steps to stand up for the United States and defend our national security against the Kremlin's campaign to undermine democracy at home and overseas", Menendez said in a statement.

As for her relationship with Trump, she said: "We are friends".

He added: "Today we are talking trade, we are talking military".

Other accusations, denied by Moscow, include that it meddled in United States and European politics, supplied the weapon that shot down a passenger plane in 2014 over Ukraine and tried to kill a former Russian spy in Britain with a nerve agent.

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question" about interference in the USA election, Trump said at a news conference with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers, her country estate.

He also said he will bring up the issue of Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 USA election. I will be asking that question again.

"I'm not going in with high expectations but we may come out with very surprising things", Trump said.

"I think by and large [Putin] views the world as a zero-sum game, but he most certainly views the relationship with the United States and Russian Federation as a zero-sum game", Sen.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser reaffirmed Moscow's insistence that it did not try to influence the election as the U.S. Justice Department was preparing to announce charges against the 12 Russians.

Contrary to what Trump's supporters will say, the Mueller investigation is clearly not ending any time soon, nor should it.

The Kremlin has always been trying to arrange a summit, betting that Putin and Trump will get on well and stop a sharp downwards spiral in bilateral ties.

On Trump's meeting, McCain - who has previously admonished Trump for speaking highly of Putin - said Trump should exhibit loyalty to the country he calls home, rather than to the Russians.

Or will they continue to embarrass themselves by wasting valuable taxpayer time and money by using what should be very serious oversight responsibilities to hold additional fake hearings and witch hunts of their own?

The New START treaty negotiated under former President Barack Obama will expire in 2021, and both sides would like to extend and possibly expand the accord.

During the summit briefing, Ushakov challenged USA officials to offer proof to back the ongoing allegations of Russian interference, adding that Putin has proposed setting up a joint working group on cybersecurity to look into the issue.

"It's one of the signs that the wind is blowing in our sails, thanks in large part to Trump", he said.

Throughout his European tour, Trump has suggested he would like to build a better relationship with Putin.

He did allow, though, that there was "a new sense of urgency" about increasing military spending.

He said that it was German Chancellor Angela Merkel, not him, who was beholden to Putin because of a pipeline system Russian Federation is expanding between their countries. "It really hurts our relationship with Russian Federation".

After this, Trump will go to have tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle.
