US President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin held their first face-to-face meeting Friday at the G20 summit in Hamburg, with a possibly overawed Trump declaring: “it’s an honour to be with you”.
“We look forward to a lot of very positive things happening for Russia, for the United States and for everyone concerned,” Trump said.
Putin told the US leader: “I’m delighted to be able to meet you personally Mr President. And I hope as you have said, our meeting will yield concrete results.”
Trump was joined at the Putin meeting only by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and a translator, an extraordinarily small cast list that raised concerns among experts.
