US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet on Saturday on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told the state news agency RIA Novosti.
The meeting, at the Park Hyatt hotel in Buenos Aires, is expected to start at 9:30 a.m. ET and last for over two hours.
The two leaders are expected to discuss several bilateral issues, including “ways to normalize” relations between the two countries, Ushakov said.
Also the Kremlin said on Thursday that despite US threats to cancel over Moscow’s tensions with Ukraine, both leaders will meet.
“Washington has confirmed the meeting,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.
The meeting has not yet been publicly confirmed by the White House. But Trump had suggested in an interview on Tuesday that he might cancel his meeting with Putin depending on the results of a “full report” about last weekend’s maritime clash between Russia and Ukraine.
