Helinski, July 16: The United States President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin today arrived in Helsinki for bilateral talks. Before the talks, Trump addressed the media. He said that they would discuss everything from trade to military to nuclear. Both the leaders are scheduled to meet at the Presidential Palace. During the meeting, only their interpreters will be present. Relations between both the countries have touched the lowest point after Russia was accused of meddling in the US Presidential elections.
The meeting is taking place just three days after the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian intelligence agents on charges of hacking the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Both the leaders will also hold a press conference after the meeting.
Here's the video of Trump and Putin's meeting in Finland:

Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!

Trump termed the meeting as an opportunity to improve relations with each other. The US president said, “I think we have great opportunities together. Frankly, we have not been getting along very well for the last number of years. I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship.” On Monday, Trump also blamed “US foolishness’ for souring relationships with Russia.
