Putin ready for November meeting with Trump in Paris


MOSCOW (AP) —President Vladimir Putin says he would be ready to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump when they both visit Paris next month.

Speaking at the start of Tuesday's meeting with Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, Putin said that it's important to maintain Russia-U.S. dialogue despite their differences. Bolton's visit follows Trump's statement over the weekend that he intends to pull out of a key nuclear arms pact, the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Putin said his last meeting with Trump in Helsinki in July was useful, adding that he would be open to meet with Trump in France if he agrees.

Bolton responded that Trump would look forward to seeing Putin in Paris on the sideline of events marking 100 years since the armistice ending World War I.
