2018 U.S.-Russia Summit: Trump, Putin Meet In Helsinki, Finland

Unic Press UK: The United States President Donald Trump and the Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin met today in Helsinki, Finland, discussing a series of global challenges and bilateral issues.

Trump, who had a one-on-one meeting with Putin in Helsinki to eschew leakage of highly confidential issues in the light of incessant leaks by his aides, strongly justified his administration’s decision to hold concrete talks at the highest level with the Russian government. Speaking at a joint press conference held by the two most powerful presidents in the world, the U.S. President said: “Our relationship has never been worse than it is now, however that changed as of about four hours ago. Refusing to engage will not accomplish anything,” the Russian News Agency TASS reports.

On allegations by the U.S. authorities that the Russian government had interfered with the U.S. 2016 Presidential Election, the U.S. President said: “I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be,” the Associated Press reports.

President Putin in his remarks was unequivocal about his desire for a Trump win in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, saying: “Yes, I wanted him to win because he spoke of normalization of Russian-U.S. ties. Isn’t it natural to feel sympathy to a person who wanted to develop relations with our country? It’s normal.”

“I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, than to risk peace in pursuit of politics. ,” he further said in one of his tweets.
