Trump Had Second Conversation With Putin While at G-20 Summit

Trump Had Second Conversation With Putin While at G-20 Summit”

Press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed on Tuesday that President Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin a second time, informally, at the G-20 summit held in Hamburg, Germany earlier this month.

No formal readout of the encounter was distributed by the White House, where officials said the only account of the meeting in Hamburg came from Trump himself. "Mrs Trump was seated next to President Putin", the White House said. Photographers were granted only brief access at the beginning of the dinner, and reporters were not allowed to witness any of the interactions.

At one point, First Lady Melania Trump entered the room to hurry them along. The U.S. president went over to them at the conclusion of the dinner and visited with Putin, the official said.

"A conversation over dessert should not be characterized as a meeting", he said.

Their second meeting, unreported at the time, took place at a dinner for G-20 leaders, a senior administration official said.

In a tweet late on Tuesday, Trump said: "Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick". Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!", Trump added.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson informed the media persons before departing for the G20 summit that Russian Federation has been given the major role to solve Syrian crisis and decide the fate of Syrian President Bashar al -Assad.

Trump says there was no collusion and Russian Federation denies interference in the election.

The two talked for roughly an hour, with no aides present and using only Putin's interpreter for translation, Bremmer said.

Coons said Trump didn't bring a United States translator and relied on Putin's, which the senator called a "basic failure in terms of national security protocol". He says the dinner was attended by only leaders, spouses, and translators.

"At the dinner, President Trump was seated between Mrs Abe, wife of the Prime Minister of Japan, and Mrs Macri, wife of the President of Argentina". The American translator accompanying President Trump spoke Japanese.

"Part of the rationale is the flurry of bilateral contacts that happen", the official said.

President Trump had called on Putin to discuss the prevailing situation of Syria, in their first face-to-face meeting.

The two leader's relationship is under intense scrutiny amid allegations of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Meanwhile, the White House said Mr Trump would nominate former Utah governor Jon Huntsman as ambassador to Russian Federation, a key post for a president who promised to improve relations with Moscow.
