McMaster: Trump to meet with Putin at the G-20 summit

The Guardian reports that the White House asked its National Security Council staff to come up with a list of "deliverables" Trump can offer Putin during their first in-person meeting at the G20 summit in Germany next month.

Trump's National Security Advisor HR McMaster, however, was non-committal as to whether Trump would bring up the matter of Russia's alleged involvement in last year's USA election.

Contacts between Russia and the United States are under intense scrutiny following allegations by USA intelligence officials of Russian interference in last year's US presidential election.Russian officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, say they are frustrated that the Trump administration has not been able to engage effectively with Russia on important issues.

Trump has struck a tough tone on Russia's ally Syria, ordering a missile attack on a military base there in April after it reportedly was used to launch a chemical attack; and warning this week that the government of Bashar al-Assad would "pay a heavy price" if it carried out a new chemical attack.

"We have no specific agenda", Mr McMaster said during a briefing on the trip, which includes a stop in Warsaw.

The format for Trump and Putin's meeting at the G20 has not yet been set.

The Trump administration's vexed relationship with Russian Federation, including contacts between some of the president's senior advisers and Moscow, has faced intense scrutiny amid a cascade of media revelations and a series of official investigations, including by special counsel Robert Mueller.

"It's whatever the president wants to talk about", McMaster said.

Donald Trump is considering offering Russian President Vladimir Putin concessions, and we have no idea what Trump is getting in return.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the Kremlin said Russian Federation was ready to attend a full-scale meeting - the first since Trump has taken office - in addition to any interactions the pair would have at the summit. Such concessions could include returning two diplomatic compounds in the USA to Russian Federation or lessening sanctions. The compounds were seized by the USA government as part of sanctions in response to Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign and other acts of Russian aggression.

Microsoft Wants To Bring Xbox Emulation Onto The PC
Xbox boss Phil Spencer was interviewed about the new console, saying the PS4 Pro is an Xbox one S competitor, not an Xbox One X. The new gadget's chief rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro , is arguably a better deal, costing $100 less than the Xbox One X .

White House officials have also said that preparations for a formal bilateral meeting are not underway, but that a less formal pull-aside session is likely between the two leaders.

A proposed new package of sanctions on Russian Federation in the U.S. Congress might complicate Trump's desire for warmer relations with Moscow.

Putin and Trump likely won't have trouble finding things to talk about.

"Our relationship is at an all-time low, and it's been deteriorating further".

"I still do not want to comment on newspaper reports, because small tidbits of reliable information are sometimes a needle in a haystack among false reports that are published now", he said when asked to comment on a report in the Guardian, which said that the USA is allegedly analyzing potential concessions to Russian Federation in the run-up to the meeting between the two leaders.
