President Trump 'Open to Visiting Moscow' If Putin Formally Invites Him

Putin said in the meantime, it was possible that he and Trump would meet on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit, or another worldwide event.

Putin appeared to dominate Trump during the summit in Helsinki, and the USA president faced a storm of criticism at home for his handling of the meeting.

He was referring to the federal investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump's campaign assisted or was aware of the efforts.

Last week, just days after they met in Helsinki, Trump invited Putin to Washington for a second sit-down. Moscow was lukewarm and did not immediately accept.

The White House said no agreements were reached other than having national security teams meet.

"I understand perfectly that President Trump has a desire to hold further meetings, and I am ready for that".

"We are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow", he added, according to the state news agency RIA-Novosti. "I repeat once again, if the right conditions for work are created".

It's part of "a power game between Putin and Trump", said Dr. Alina Polyakova of the Brookings Institution. She said it didn't matter to her because she hadn't planned to be there anyway. He later said he had misspoken at the summit. If the Trump folks were unclear on this, they should have consulted every other president before them. His initial remarks raised concerns that Mr. Trump trusted the Russian leader's denial of such interference in American over the conclusions of the entire US intelligence apparatus.
