  • Intel report Kremlin sees US urging regime change in Russia

The Guardian reports that the White House asked its National Security Council staff to come up with a list of "deliverables" Trump can offer Putin during their first in-person meeting at the G20 summit in Germany next month.

Trump later walked back the idea of a relationship with Putin in a 2016 interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.

The meeting between the two world leaders is sure to raise eyebrows as it comes in the middle of multiple investigations into the alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.

"I have no relationship with him", said Trump, later continuing, "He said something nice about me".

The G20 leaders will meet in Hamburg on July 7 and 8 and Gabriel welcomed the possibility that the summit could facilitate bringing together Trump and Putin, who have yet to meet.

Trump has frequently called for better ties with Russian Federation but lawmakers in his own Republican Party are urging him to be wary of Moscow.

One of the goals of the president's trip, he said, will be "to develop a common approach to Russian Federation".

In the last days of his presidency, Obama ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian suspected spies and imposed sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies over their involvement in hacking USA political groups in the 2016 election. But the official said members of Trump's national security team remain concerned about the optics of a formal sitdown at this stage.

"They will meet" on the sidelines of the G20, Mr Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, but added that "no preparations" are being made for any separate meeting at the moment.

Some advisers recommended that the president instead do either a quick, informal "pull-aside" on the sidelines of the summit, or that the US and Russian delegations hold "strategic stability talks", which typically don't involve the presidents.

Those relations reached a post-Cold War low under Trump's predecessor, Obama. Trump has yet to meet Putin face-to-face, and as Lavrov pointed out, it'd be very odd for the United States to deliberately avoid such a meeting when they're in the same room.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met with Trump at the White House on Tuesday in what he himself said was an attempt to "arm" the USA president with information ahead of his meeting with Putin.

"I think, first, we need to normalize dialogue so that it would be based on the key interests of both Russian Federation and the United States", Lavrov said, according to the Tass state news agency.
