Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he had invited United States leader Donald Trump to visit Moscow and was ready to travel to Washington for a new summit, as he praised their "useful" meetings.
"The security screening process that is done for all gifts was done for the soccer ball", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in an email to Bloomberg.
Putin added that Russian Federation and the United States also have plans for contacts at G20 summits and other worldwide gatherings.
On Wednesday, the White House announced it was postponing until next year the invitation that Trump extended last week for Putin to visit Washington this (Northern Hemisphere) fall to continue the talks they began in Helsinki, Finland, earlier this month.Читайте также: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition Coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive
I am ready to go to Washington but I repeat: "if the right conditions will be established", Putin added.
President Donald Trump denied on Friday that he knew in advance of a meeting during the 2016 election campaign at which Russians promised to share dirt on his rival Hillary Clinton - shooting back at an explosive allegation by his longtime lawyer. I am ready for that. "We need for the appropriate conditions to exist, to be created, including in our countries", Putin told a news conference. We are ready for such meetings.
Putin and Trump met in Helsinki last week, but Trump faced harsh criticism in the United States from Republicans and Democrats alike who said he sided with Russian Federation over the conclusions of his own intelligence agencies that Moscow had interfered in the 2016 US presidential campaign. There, Trump was widely criticized for appearing to back Putin's denial that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 US election - statements Trump subsequently walked back.
Putin said that, in the meantime, it was possible that he and Trump would meet on the sidelines of the G 20 summit in Argentina in November. This was the same day Donald Trump publicly called for them to do just that: "Russia if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing". "We are not going to comment further on security procedures". "There are some things you can't do over the phone".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
