U.S. President Donald Trump looks on aboard Air Force One en route to Bedminster, New Jersey, from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, U.S., June 29, 2018. But the national security adviser declined comment on a Washington Post report citing intelligence officials as saying in the wake of the Trump-Kim talks that North Korea had sought to mislead the United States about the size of its nuclear arsenal and hide the existence of some nuclear facilities. I asked him again.

"I think the president will have to pursue that further and I think that's one reason why he and President Putin need to have this conversation", he said, adding that "Vladimir Putin is the one who makes the decisions and I think our leader needs to speak with him".

Asked about whether the visiting USA lawmakers would meet Putin, Peskov said: "For now, it is not on the president's schedule, but we know that the American officials have planned quite wide-reaching contacts with their colleagues".

Trump gave a similar answer when asked whether he would consider lifting US sanctions on Russian Federation which were imposed over the annexation.

The Republican president said he would raise the issue of election meddling with Putin as well as Russia's role in Syria and Ukraine.

He tweeted Thursday that, "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".

Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump are scheduled to hold their first one-on-one summit in Helsinki on July 16. On Thursday before news of the summit's location, Trump backed up that claim tweeting that Russian Federation was not involved.

Finally over: Samsung and Apple settle longstanding patent dispute
Apple and Samsung have been fighting over the designs and functionality of their smartphones and tablets since 2011. Apple ignited the smartphone revolution with iPhone and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design.

Zakaria noted that the location of the Trump-Putin meeting is "an interesting choice", given that the historic Helsinki Accords was signed there.

Peskov explained that President Vladimir Putin is ready to discuss "all the other questions" in the "search for potential common ground".

In early 2014, with areas of Ukraine falling into chaos in the wake of a Kiev street revolt that ousted a pro-Russian president, Russian troops - in unmarked uniforms - seized Crimea. I've said it from day one, getting along with Russian Federation and with China and with everybody is a very good thing.

The summit is being seen by some as an attempt by Putin to try to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russian Federation after it annexed Crimea in 2014, its support of Ukrainian separatists and alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

Asked if the United States would recognize Crimea as part of Russia, Trump said: "We're going to have to see".

"That's not the position of the United States".
