Putin Says He's 'Ready' to Go to Washington

The Adidas soccer ball Russian President Vladimir Putin gave to President Donald Trump at their summit in Helsinki last week contains a chip that can transmit information to nearby cell phones, according to Bloomberg. His invitation for Trump to come to Moscow - whether the invitation has been formally tendered or is only in spirit - also appears to pressure Trump to show whether he is bold and disruptive enough to buck intense criticism at home.

"I understand perfectly that President Trump has a desire to hold further meetings, and I am ready for that".

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin want to see each other, but they can't decide when and where.

"I am ready for that. We need for the appropriate conditions to exist, to be created, including in our countries", Putin told a news conference.

But amid all of the questions about who knows what, here's what we know about the Trump Tower meeting?

Putin went on to say Russian Federation was ready to greet Trump in Moscow.

Meanwhile, police were unable to get a hold of the third victim who had initially filed a complaint against the 31-year-old actor. Rachel Eck, an LA-based producer, also claimed the actor had assaulted her that year, on the night before the Oscars.

"I believe it was a mistake by those from the Trump campaign who did participate", he told ABC News.

"I am ready to go to Washington", Putin said.

However, he said the conditions need to be right for meeting to happen.

The White House said Trump was enthusiastic about another Russian Federation summit.

Putin did not say how Trump had reacted to the invitation to travel to Moscow.

Relations between Russian Federation and the United States have been fraught because of rows over Russia's annexation of Crimea, and allegations - denied by Moscow - that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump win.

For viewers in India, the eclipse , both partial and the total, will be visible in its entirety from all parts of the country. When the moon moved into the conical shadow of the earth, it went from being illuminated by the sun to being dark.

In his first statement about the meeting released last July, Donald Trump Jr. referred to it as a "short introductory meeting" in a statement that we now know that President Trump himself dictated.

Trump never delivered on his promise after his eldest son, son-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort met with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016.

Putin also praised Trump for keeping his promises to U.S. voters.

The Russian leader said telephone calls between Moscow and Washington were insufficient and that both sides needed to meet to talk about matters like the Iran nuclear deal and global conflicts.

The defense secretary also addressed election interference in comments to reporters Friday, CNBC reported.
