The summint in Helsinki will be the first full-fledged meeting of the two leaders since Trump's taking office in January 2017.

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the conclusion of the US intelligence community that Russian Federation meddled in the election and has dismissed the investigation into potential collusion with members of his campaign as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimize he presidency.

Huntsman said Trump would address the election interference in his conversations with Putin, along with a range of other national security issues, including Russia's annexation of Crimea and its efforts in Syria.

She said she expected unanimous agreement among NATO's 29 members on proposals to reform the alliance command structure, increase readiness for possible threats from Russian Federation on NATO's eastern flank, add a new training mission for Iraq and increase counterterrorism efforts in Afghanistan.

President Donald Trump is prepared to discuss Russian election meddling and other "malign" activities when he meets one-on-one with President Vladimir Putin later this month, the U.S. ambassador to Russia said.

The summit will follow a NATO meeting in Brussels where Russian Federation will also top the agenda, said U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison.


"And we are the schmucks who pay for the whole thing", he said, using a slang term for "fools". The president will arrive in Brussels the evening of July 10, and meet with other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders the following morning for a discussion of "defence and deterrence issues" and hold a later working dinner.

Her comments come just weeks after Trump charged that America is "the piggy bank that (NATO) likes to take from", and "we like to help out, but it helps them, they're in Europe".

Briefing reporters ahead of the trip, Ambassador Jon Huntsman was asked what the president hoped to achieve by meeting yet again with the leader of a country USA intelligence officials have concluded undermined US democracy by meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win, among a long list of hostile actions. He is due to arrive in Helsinki the evening of July 15 for meetings the next morning with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

Speaking of the possible topics of the upcoming meeting, Huntsman said "some of them might be around strategic stability and arms control". In the afternoon, he will have a one-on-one meeting with Putin, followed by an expanded bilateral meeting and a working lunch before he departs for Washington.
