Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely to discuss the fight against terrorism with his United States counterpart Donald Trump at the upcoming summit in Helsinki, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said. They arrived in St. Petersburg June 30 and met with its Gov. Georgy Poltavchenko.

Trump, who is set to leave for Europe on Tuesday, will hold meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in Brussels, visit Britain, and then meet Putin in Helsinki for a one-on-one meeting on July 16.

The US delegation is in Russian Federation until Thursday, ahead of the summit planned in Helsinki on July 16, at a time of high tension between Russian Federation and the West.

It was the first time that Trump said that he would discuss the question with his Russian counterpart, even though he has insisted that there were no links.

"I hope coming out of the Helsinki meeting between our two presidents will be the beginning of some type of better understanding".

Ahead of the North Korea summit, some USA officials expressed concern about a meeting without any other aides present.

Asked in a conference call with reporters if the Russian side would be comfortable with such a format, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: "It absolutely suits us".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next week, Netanyahu's office said in a brief statement.

"Most likely, it will be a short meeting with (White house adviser on national security, John) Bolton and Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, as well as with other representatives of the national security", - stated in the message.

The White House said on Monday that the United States does not recognize Russia's alleged "attempt" on Crimea, and its sanctions on Russian Federation will remain in place.

When Trump emerged from his meeting with Kim, for instance, he stunned America's Asian allies and his own staff by announcing a halt to US-South Korea military maneuvers that have long infuriated Pyongyang.
