Trump Maybe Will Not Meet Putin in Paris

“We haven’t planned anything yet. We don’t know yet whether this is the right place. I went to Paris for other things, “Trump told reporters before leaving for a political campaign.

But Trump said he would meet Putin at the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires at the end of the month.

Each party seems reluctant to hold a meeting in Paris.

“The multilateral format of the event commemorating the first hundred years of the first PD does not allow the two presidents to have substantive meetings,” spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian media.

Trump and Putin will be in Paris to commemorate 100 years of the end of the first PD.

But Peskov said the two figures were likely to meet and talk briefly about future meetings.
