Putin Says He Agreed With Trump to Secure Syria Border With Israel

Putin Says He Agreed With Trump to Secure Syria Border With Israel

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin started their first bilateral meeting here on Monday. "I've been here not too long, but it's getting close to two years, but I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship".

It is clearly my fault that America's relationship with Russian Federation is so bad and, as a known purveyor of foolishness and stupidity, I have to acknowledge that the buck stops here.

After a journalist asked a question at their joint press conference Monday in Helsinki using soccer metaphors, Putin pulled out a red-and-white ball and tossed it at Trump, at the neighboring podium.

The two leaders finally met at the Finnish presidential palace in Helsinki as the USA president congratulated the latter for hosting the World Cup.

President Trump vowed to fix torn relations with Russian Federation, arguing he would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace than to risk peace in pursuit of politics.

Wallace said that Putin refused to look at the physical indictment against 12 Russian intelligence officers for their interference in the 2016 presidential election. "I think we're greatly hampered by this whole witch hunt that's going on in the United States", he said.

There has been a barrage of criticism in the United States after President Donald Trump defended Russian Federation over claims of interference in the 2016 elections. The drama was playing out against a backdrop of fraying Western alliances, a new peak in the Russian Federation investigation and fears that Moscow's aggression may go unchallenged.

The Obama administration did, in fact, take action, including confronting Putin in person as well as expelling almost three dozen Russian diplomats the United States said were actually intelligence operatives and imposing new sanctions.

Can you imagine a similar question being asked about any previous U.S. president?

On the issue, Putin categorically denied any Russian involvement.

This was the one moment he should have listened to the Russian president, whose pointed comments directed at the media could just as easily seen as a swipe at the man to his right. He's a disgrace to the great Federal Bureau of Investigation, a disgrace, and how he's still being paid is beyond belief, ' Trump said.

"The administration should proceed with caution in dealing with Putin and should hold Russian Federation accountable for their attacks on democratic societies and institutions", he said in a statement.

"We don't have anything on them, and there can't be anything on them", Putin said Monday in his first interview with a USA news outlet since June 2017.

The two leaders agreed to cooperate more closely to fight terrorism, cybersecurity and nuclear nonproliferation. Instead, he elevated Putin's credibility to the level of U.S. intelligence agencies. And we paint ours as if ours is always just on the up and up, but we get involved in foreign countries' elections.

Addressing reporters before the one-on-one meeting, Putin struck a casual pose during Trump's remarks, slouching in his chair with his legs wide and eyes low. Putin echoed the comment saying that the USA could help Russian Federation by assuming leadership on the humanitarian task of helping displaced Syrians return to their homes.

While the Trump administration played down prospects for "concrete deliverables" to come out of the meeting, there was some speculation that, following a recent meeting between Putin and Netanyahu, a "grand bargain" between Washington and Moscow on Syria is in the works.

US President Donald Trump habitually calls the press "the enemy of the people" - a loathsome calumny, redolent of dictatorships, that he repeated yesterday.

The closely-watched summit is not the first time the Russian and U.S. presidents have held talks.

The summit, which is being closely watched around the world, was not the first time Trump and Putin have held talks.
