US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will meet on Saturday on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told state news agency RIA Novosti on Thursday.
"Bilateral relations-connected issues will come first. We should give thought to how to start discussing bilateral relations, strategic security, disarmament and regional conflicts," Peskov was quoted as saying by TASS news agency.
The meeting was yet to be confirmed by the White House. But Trump had suggested in an interview on Tuesday that he might cancel his get-together with the Russian leader depending on the results of a "full report" about last weekend's maritime clash between Russia and Ukraine, CNN reported.
US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that if the two leaders did meet, Trump would discuss security, arms control and regional issues with Putin. "I think it will be a continuation of their discussion in Helsinki," he said.
Bolton did not confirm whether the situation in Ukraine would be on the table.
