The deal is done. President Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin are set to meet in Europe next month.
The White House announced Thursday that the summit between the two leaders will take place July 16 in Finland. National security adviser John Bolton traveled to Russia this week and visited the Kremlin to help broker the talks. Bolton even met with Putin personally.
This will not be the first meeting between Trump and Putin since the U.S. president has taken office. The two had a pair of conversations during the 2017 G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. They also spoke at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in 2017.
But now, the first official summit between Trump and Putin is on the books. According to the White House, the two leaders will discuss relations between the two nations, and “a range of national security issues.”
