Trump-Putin Summit Expected To Have ‘Ambitious’ and ‘Rich’ Agenda

July 5, 2018 (EIRNS)—Moscow expects the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump in Helsinki on July 16 to give a fresh impetus to relations between the two countries, the Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s North American Department Georgy Borisenko told reporters during Fourth of July celebrations at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow yesterday, reported TASS. “We hope that the upcoming summit of the Russian and U.S. Presidents will give a fresh impetus to the further development of our relations,” he said.

According to Sputnik, “Moscow expects that the talks will be long and will have an ambitious agenda,” Borisenko said.

“It is too early to say something about the result of the meeting, because the preparatory work is still ongoing. The logic of the summit presupposes rather long talks between the two leaders; therefore, it is necessary to wait for the result of the summit.”

He said that the summit will have a rich program including key international issues, strategic stability and bilateral relations.
