Trump Says Will Raise Election Meddling With Putin in Helsinki Meeting

Trump praises Russia for fantastic World Cup

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump are set to discuss a number of "very complex" issues, including the situation in Syria, the Kremlin said on Friday.

Russia's state-owned television shows have mocked the outcry over the country's alleged hacking of the U.S. 2016 presidential election ahead of an upcoming summit between Donald Trumpand Vladimir Putin.

Trump said he planned to address election integrity when the two leaders come face to face in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16. Kremlin officials also said the allegations are an attempt by U.S. politicians to distract from domestic problems and an effort by the USA media to demonize Russian Federation.

Asked by reporters whether he was considering - as has been reported - dropping Washington's opposition to the 2014 land grab, Trump said: "We're going to have to see".

Moscow called the allegations absurd and said Russian Federation does not interfere in the internal affairs of other states.

Other topics on the table are Ukraine, Syria, Crimea and issues involving former President Barack Obama, Trump told the White House press pool on Friday. "We'll see what Russian Federation does", Trump said. "The US does not want, that someone interfered in the elections".

Responding to reports North Korea is already breaking several terms of denuclearization agreed upon with Trump, Graham said he is also anxious about Trump being too soft with dictator Kim Jong Un.

"We'll be talking about peace".

The Helsinki summit will mark the first formal one-on-one meeting between the two leaders since Trump took office, though the two met during an aside at last year's G-20 summit and have spoken at an APEC summit.

In addition, according to the President of the United States, he "sees no problems in having good relations with Russian Federation".

"They could agree on a joint statement outlining further steps from both sides to improve bilateral relations and joint action in the worldwide arena to ensure global stability and security", he said.

Trump and Putin have met twice before on the sidelines of worldwide gatherings and spoken at least eight times by phone.

Accepting that Crimea is never to return to Ukrainian control would be a major concession to Russian Federation, which is languishing under tough worldwide trade sanctions over its actions. It will continue to support rebels in eastern Ukraine, as well as President Bashar Assad and Iranian troops in Syria. "We have to deal with Russian Federation".
