Kremlin says Trump-Putin summit a go after Bolton visit

"I think the fact of the summit itself is a deliverable", he said. "I could either agree with you that he wasn't late, or I could tell you when he actually arrived and be accused of saying that he was late".
At a press conference on Wednesday, Bolton attempted to dispel concerns over the president meeting with Putin, who is at the heart of ongoing probes into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian interference in the 2016 election.
National Security Adviser John Bolton met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday, a meeting which reportedly finalized the time and location of the upcoming summit. Trump denies wrongdoing and calls the investigation a "witch hunt".
Earlier this month, Trump suggested that the G-7 group of industrialized nations re-admit Russian Federation as a member. The American president wanted to invite Russian to Washington, but Moscow preferred a neutral territory. Trump's new trade policy resents both Europeans and Russians, but Putin may try to forge a special alliance with Trump - wherever possible - on sidelines of Europeans. He added that Russian Federation never wanted a confrontation with the United States and offered to discuss what could be done to "restore full-fledged relations based on equality and mutual respect". The two leaders may issue a "joint statement" at the summit "outlining further steps to improve relations", the Russians said in their statements.
Mr Bolton noted that "President Trump feels very strongly on that subject". Trump and Putin are expected to meet next month, when the US president will be in Europe for a summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies and a visit to the United Kingdom.
According to media reports, the summit could take place in Helsinki or Vienna, 15 July.
The summit will begin with a one-on-one meeting, with talks to last "several hours".
He said Putin's meeting with Bolton would be used to discuss "the sad state" of bilateral relations as well as top global issues.
Ushakov described the talks with Bolton as "constructive and businesslike" and said they "brought the results we were hoping for". Ties between the two nations have sunk to their lowest point in decades. A senior US official said on Tuesday that Finland's capital Helsinki was being considered as a location.
Moscow denies meddling in the US election and Trump denies any collusion took place.
