Putin ‘ready’ for talks with Trump either in Moscow or in Washington

Putin said Friday he's ready to invite Trump to Moscow and ready to visit Washington if conditions are right.

Mattis told reporters that he spoke to White House chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE and national security adviser John Bolton "immediately after" Trump's closed-door meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, according to CNBC.

Collins said after she shouted questions to President Donald Trump during an event in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Shine pulled her into his office along with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a dressing down.

He was referring to CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who said she was denied access to the event with Trump and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission.

"Despite the difficulties, in this particular case difficulties linked to the internal political situation in the United States, life goes on and our contacts continue", the Russian leader said. I am ready for that. By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him about that.

"I am ready to go to Washington".

Both leaders have called the Helsinki meeting successful, and Mr Putin rounded on US summit critics earlier this month for wanting to sacrifice the US-Russia relationship over "narrow party interests".

But speaking to reporters in South Africa, where he was attending a summit of BRICS nations, Putin said another meeting with Trump was still on the agenda. "President Trump asked [John Bolton] to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway".

Putin, who has ruled Russian Federation for most of the last two decades, also lauded Mr. Trump for what he said was a unique quality in a politician; keeping his promises.

Mr. Trump claimed days after the joint news conference with Putin that he had misspoken, and never meant to suggest there was no reason to suspect the Russian security services meddled in the 2016 election that won him the White House.

Efforts by both Trump and Putin to achieve detente have been fiercely resisted by USA lawmakers, including some in Trump's own Republican Party, accusing him of being too friendly toward Putin, whom they consider an adversary of the United States.

He said he wanted to talk about the controversial Iran nuclear deal, saying: "It's a subject for debate and negotiations". "There are some things you can't do over the phone", he added.
