Vladimir Putin’s Diplomacy Intense Ahead of Trump Summit

July 14, 2018 (EIRNS)—Russia’s President Vladimir Putin met today with Palestine State President Mahmoud Abbas, after meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, and Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor for international affairs to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, over the previous days, and will meet Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on July 15.

The entirety of Southwest Asia will certainly be a major topic in the Trump-Putin summit.

Putin also met over the July 13-15 weekend with leaders from Gabon, Sudan, Moldova, Hungary, France and Croatia, many of whom came to Russia at the close of the World Cup soccer tournament.
