Presidents Trump and Putin to Finally Meet

'Our relationship with Russian Federation is not different from that with any other country in terms of us communicating to them really what our concerns are, where we see problems with the relationship but also opportunities, ' McMaster said. The economic meeting taing place in Germany will be the first between the two men.

But major disagreements remain over Ukraine and Syria, and Trump said in April that U.S-Russian relations "may be at an all-time low".

Should the US take preemptive measures against the Syrian military to stop what Washington has said could be a potential chemical weapons strike, Lavrov said Russian Federation would respond "with dignity" to the USA "provocation".

The administration officials said that no decision has yet been made to return the compounds or ease sanctions, and that any such steps were unlikely to accompany Trump's meeting with Putin in Hamburg.

Trump has staunchly denied that he had any contacts with Russian Federation during his campaign.

Aside from an official phone call between newly-inaugurated Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the former trashed his predecessor's nuke treaty as a "bad deal" without understanding it, the pair hasn't met in person. And in any case, they will meet there on the sidelines of the summit.

White House officials have also said that preparations for a formal bilateral meeting are not underway, but that a less formal pull-aside session is likely between the two leaders.

Lavrov said it was especially important that Trump and Putin had an opportunity to talk about the conflict in Syria and efforts to find a peaceful solution.

"We assume that contact will take place since the two presidents will be at the same time in the same city, the same building, the same hall", he said, according to RT. "It won't be right, I guess, if they aren't able to talk there and to discuss a lot of issues", Lavrov said at a joint press conference with his German counterpart, Sigmar Gabriel, in Krasnodar on Wednesday.
