Kremlin doubts veracity of CNN report on Trump’s plans for Syria

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov

Moscow and Washington confirmed the location and date of the summit simultaneously on Thursday.

The European Union and United States originally imposed the sanctions to penalize Russian Federation for its illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its backing of separatists fighting against the Ukrainian government forces in eastern Ukraine.

Trump's unprecedented approach to Russian Federation has stirred discord among European leaders who want to isolate Putin, Osborne argued.

Looking ahead to a Trump-Putin encounter, Bolton also brushed aside questions as to whether Trump had been too eager to accept the word of Kim Jong Un when he met with the North Korean leader last month, seeking to quell North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Trump's refusal to reaffirm the long-standing US opposition to Russia's intervention in Ukraine will dismay European allies ahead of next month's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit on July 11, just days before his meeting with Putin. "We're going to be talking to them about Syria", he said. I think we'll be talking about Ukraine.

"We'll be talking about peace".

A delegation of U.S. senators and congressmen headed by Senator Richard Shelby will travel to Russian Federation on Saturday. "You never know about meetings what happens, right?" I think it's about him, and he's a narcissist, it's all about him.

Peskov's comments come a week after, Putin told USA national security adviser John Bolton that Russian-American relations "were not in the best shape", during a meeting in Moscow, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were at $65.99 a barrel, down 37 cents, or 0.6 percent, from their last settlement.

In fact, Trump has long preferred to avoid the issue and frequently has tried to cast doubt on whether Russian Federation interfered at all, despite the conclusion of USA intelligence agencies.

United States intelligence agencies have alleged that Russian hackers had tried to help Trump win the White House, something Russia has flatly denied.

"If (the issue of election meddling) will be raised by the U.S. president, then the Russian president will repeat that Russia could not and did not have anything to do with this situation, around which such insinuations are unfurled", Peskov said.

Bolton said there was a need for a direct meeting with Putin, "especially given the Russian system where Putin essentially calls the shots".

Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said he welcomed the planned dialogue.

After the July 11 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, Trump plans to fly to Helsinki for his first one-on-one summit with Putin on July 16.

"They will certainly discuss the general global situation and hopefully even small steps in reducing tensions", stated the President of Finland Niinistö.
