Putin Said He Had Invited Trump to Moscow

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he had invited US President Donald Trump to Moscow, Reuters reports from the BRICS summit in Johannesburg. Putin said that both he and the U.S. President are ready for the further summits, if the proper conditions for work are created.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the BRICS summit in South Africa, Putin said that talks over the phone between Moscow and Washington are not enough, and both sides need to hold meetings to discuss issues such as Iran’s nuclear deal and global conflicts.

Putin and Trump met in Helsinki on July 16, but Trump faced the backlash in the US because of this step.
