helsinki - US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin meet for a summit in the Finnish capital of Helsinki on Monday.
The two heads of state will, among other things, talk in detail about Syria. Russia's support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, accused by the United States and its Western allies of the use of chemical weapons against civilians, has been one of the main concerns in the tense relationship between Washington and the Kremlin.
Other controversial issues will probably also come up when the two world leaders meet. For example, Trump said that he is going to discuss the Russian interference in the American elections. It is expected that Putin will repeat his position that Moscow has nothing to do with it. It was announced on Friday that the US was prosecuting twelve Russian intelligence officers for interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
Trump left Sunday in an interview with CBS News to know that he 'little expected' from the meeting.
