Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin could meet without aides, Kremlin says

At Trump and Putin's first meeting, on the margins of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, a year ago, the only aide to accompany the President was then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, along with a USA translator.

Peskov says, "President Putin feels absolutely comfortable in all formats that are comfortable for his interlocutors" and the Kremlin "doesn't rule out" such a meeting.

Lavrov and Pompeo also discussed "a number of current issues of the world agenda, including the situation around Syria and on the Korean Peninsula", the ministry said.

"The President makes the policy". We agree to disagree with Russian Federation on that front.

Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine has led to economic sanctions being placed on Moscow, but the subject will not be discussed in the Finnish capital, Peskov said.

Such concessions are why a one-on-one encounter between Trump and Putin is a wild card.
