Ambassador Anatoly Antonov revealed the discussions amid confusion and concern in the USA about what the two world leaders actually agreed upon behind closed doors.

The US President had also mentioned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was "a disaster for our country", while also saying that it had negatively impacted US-Russia relations.
He did not elaborate on what Putin's solutions would be.
Ukraine and European powers are unlikely to support a referendum in the Donbass region, where pro-Russian separatists hold sway.

Coats, the head of the US intelligence community and a chief adviser to the president on national security, learned of the proposed second meeting with Putin when the White House announced it on Twitter, while he was being interviewed at the Aspen conference.
"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!"
Antonov said it's important to "deal with the results" of the leaders' first summit before jumping too fast into a new one.
But, he added, "Russia was always open to such proposals".
News of a second Trump-Putin summit came soon after the Senate voted unanimously to rebuke Putin's attempt to convince Trump to hand over current and former American officials for questioning - an offer Trump had previously called "incredible".
American intelligence agencies concluded past year that Russian Federation carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 USA election, seeking to sow discord, disparage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and help Trump's candidacy.
