Trump says Putin summit ‘is only the beginning’

HELSINKI, July 16, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – US President Donald Trump said Monday that his summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin was only the beginning of a process of restoring ties.

“It is in the interest of both of our countries to continue our conversation and we have agreed to do so,” Trump told reporters at a joint news conference in Helsinki.

“I’m sure we will be meeting again in the future often. And hopefully we will solve every one of the problems that we discussed today.”
