As G20 proceeds this week, Delhi likely to play a key role

Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that he will meet Putin during the summit on June 28-29, reported Al Jazeera.

The letter comes just a few days before Trump is scheduled to meet with Putin at the G-20 summit in Japan.

The White House signalled it was in no hurry to solve the trade dispute with China and Mr Trump would use his meeting with President Xi "to see where the Chinese side is since the talks last left off".

"Prime Minister Netanyahu's strong relationships with both President Trump and President Putin augur well the chances of success and greater alignment of the policies of these three great countries in a number of critical security issues", he stated. He added that the talks are expected to touch on arms control issues and worldwide crises, including the Iranian nuclear deal, Syria, North Korea and Ukraine.

Those holes in the record are a break from past presidencies - one particularly jarring given Russia's interference in the 2016 election and the scrutiny the Trump campaign came under during special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation.

Answering the question whether it will be a separate meeting or talks "on the go", the Kremlin spokesman said that "we are not ruling out holding a separate meeting between Putin and Trump with certain contents". They also had a full-fledged summit in Helsinki, Finland last July, after which Trump had faced fierce criticism at home for accepting Putin's denial of meddling in the US vote.

Since 2014, this would be the sixth G20 summit attended by PM Mr. Modi and first after taking on the second term.

Another major nuclear pact - the New Start treaty that entered force in 2012 - is set to expire in 2021 unless Moscow and Washington negotiate an extension.

Trump's agenda does not now include any formal meetings with leaders of Latin American countries who will also attend the summit, such as Argentinian President Mauricio Macri, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro or Mexican Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, an informed United States official told Efe news.
