Trump and USA delegation to bring up election meddling with Putin

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shake hands during a meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Hamburg Germany

The decision comes less than two weeks ahead of a planned summit between U.S. President Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

"You appear to be hell-bent on pushing for your European army, hell-bent for a foreign policy without veto, and hell-bent to be on a direct collision course with President Trump, and with NATO", Farage said on Tuesday while blasting the EU leadership during a debate at the European Parliament.

President Donald Trump and his United States delegation intend to raise the issues of arms control, Ukraine, Syria and election meddling during their meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a senior administration told reporters Thursday.

The U.S. president, whose 2016 election campaign is being probed for possible collusion with Russian Federation, has said repeatedly he wants to have a good relationship with Washington's former Cold War foe, despite tensions between Russian Federation and the West over Ukraine, Syria and alleged election meddling around the world. But it will also take place under the cloud of special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into potential links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 vote.

"The President hopes that a meeting can help reduce tensions", US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman told reporters on a briefing call set up by the White House.

Mr. Putin is not expected to budge on key areas of conflict with the West, including the annexation of Crimea, support of separatist movements in eastern Ukraine and backing President Bashar Assad's regime in Syria.

Turkey's opposition concedes election defeat as Erdogan returns as president
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan addresses his supporters gathered in front of AKP headquarters in Ankara, Turkey June 25, 2018. In a milestone, a pro-Kurdish group, HDP, gained the 10 percent of the vote needed for representation in Parliament.

A Senate Intelligence Committee report released on Tuesday supported the conclusion of three USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to help Donald Trump win the 2016 US presidential election.

"We're entering with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort", Huntsman said. Trump also rejected the joint communique signed by leaders at the conclusion of the meeting, launching personal attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the process.

The summit will include a one-on-one sit down followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with advisers and a working lunch.

Spanning both events is the biannual Farnborough air show in the United Kingdom, where defense companies and allied nations toggle between the welcome news of increased European defense spending and deeper cooperation against the Russian threat, and the conflicting messages sent from Washington over its commitments to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and existing trade agreements.

Speaking of the possible topics of the upcoming meeting, Huntsman said "some of them might be around strategic stability and arms control".
