Putin Invites Trump to Moscow for a One-on-One Meeting

In response, the White House said that Trump is "open to visiting Moscow" once he gets a "formal invitation".

He said that among the key points of the BRICS summit's joint declaration was the "nonacceptance of economic sanctions" imposed on Russian Federation by the US and European Union in response to Moscow's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in 2014 and for supporting separatists in Ukraine's east, where more than 10,300 people have died in the conflict.

Trump had initially invited Putin to Washington this fall for a follow-up meeting to their Helsinki summit, but Trump national security adviser John Bolton changed the timeline this week, saying Trump now believes it should take place "after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over" and "after the first of the year".

Putin said in the meantime, it was possible that he and Trump would meet on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit, or another global event.

A White House statement says Friday's discussions addressed threats posed to our elections from "malign foreign actors", efforts to provide cybersecurity assistance to state and local officials and ways to hold those who attempt to illegally interfere in the elections accountable.

At the same time, he has made clear his desire for future talks with Putin and an improved relationship between the U.S. and Russian Federation. I am ready for that.

"Yes, we have contacts on a working level, but sometimes that's not enough, we need contacts at the highest political level", Putin said. We are ready for such meetings.

The U.S. president has repeatedly denied all knowledge of the encounter, but according to television networks CNN and NBC, his former lawyer Michael Cohen now says he was present when Donald Jr. told his father about the Russian offer and that Mr. Trump approved. The agency quoted Putin as saying "He has, by the way, such an invitation, and I told him about it".

The report goes on to cite Mueller's desire to "question the president about the tweets ". Rudy Giuliani even told the Times that it's not possible to obstruct justice in "public".

"One of President Trump's big pluses is that he strives to fulfil the promises he made to voters, to the American people", Putin said.

"(Trump) has a desire to conduct meetings in the future and I am ready", Putin said, extending the invitation and reiterating his desire to go to Washington.

However, he noted the right conditions and circumstances need to be arranged before another meeting can happen.

After a summit in Helsinki between the two leaders last week sparked a political crisis in the US, Putin said they had planned to meet on the sidelines of yet another summit in Argentina later this year and possibly at other venues.

Journalists listen to Russia's President Vladimir Putin during a news conference following the BRICS summit in Johannesburg, South Africa July 27, 2018.

The pair met last week for closed-door talks in Helsinki.

He said talks should begin on the possible extension of a nuclear arms treaty which was signed by Trump and Putin's predecessors, Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev in 2010 and which will expire in 2021. "We are not going to comment further on security procedures".

Russian Federation is under punitive sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union and wants them lifted.
