Trump Puts Kibosh on Putin Talks, Citing Ukraine-Russia Naval Confrontation

At the same time, a White House official told Sputnik that US President Donald Trump had no pull-aside meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin scheduled for the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires.

"I look forward to a meaningful Summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!" he added.

Following Argentine President Mauricio Macri's remarks Friday at a news conference at Macri's Casa Rosada residence, Trump shook the South American leader's hand before quipping, "I think I understood you better in your language than I did on this, but that's OK". Trump has denied any wrongdoing and on Thursday called Cohen a "weak person" looking for a reduced sentence. Cohen must know more, and it's only a matter of time before we learn that Mr. Trump was conspiring with Vladimir Putin in return for who knows what.

"We regret the USA administration's decision to cancel the meeting", President Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters on the presidential aircraft that Mr Trump made the decision not to meet Mr Putin after speaking with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton.

The announcement took the Kremlin by surprise. "The first thing he did with Russian Federation when he got into office was arm the Ukrainians and put sanctions on Russian Federation as it relates to Ukraine".

Ukraine's president Petro Poroshenko accused Putin on Thursday of wanting to annex his entire country and called for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to deploy warships to a sea shared by the two nations. She did not offer any explanation for those changes to the schedule.

However, because Mr Putin's net worth is unknown, whether he is wealthier than President Trump is also not known.

United Kingdom police investigate shocking bullying incident targeting Syrian boy
Speaking for the first time since the incident, the boy said: "I woke up at night and just started crying about this problem". It said an unconnected incident on 7 October, in which the same boy sustained a wrist injury, was investigated at the time.

Trump and Putin pictured in Helsinki in July this year. It also comes as the USA and Russian Federation relationship has also been under greater strain following the administration's decision to pull out of a decades-old arms treaty with Russian Federation.

The United States and its allies later condemned the move at the United Nations. At last here is a clear 2016 link between candidate Trump and Russian Federation.

Mr. Trump weathered the similar criticism of going soft on Mr. I was thinking about it, but we haven't.

The escalation of tensions between the two countries follows Moscow's seizure and annexation of Crimea in 2014, after a pro-Russian leader was toppled in Kiev.

While no official sit-down is scheduled, Trump has kept the door open to a casual meeting. Ukraine is not a member of the US -led military alliance.

"We condemn this demonstration of barbarism and are multiplying our efforts to bring our boys home", Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said on Twitter after the court rulings.

In a phone call with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Trump expressed "deep concern" at the incident, the White House said on Wednesday.
