NATO Braces For Trump, White House Says Business As Usual

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov back to a camera listens to U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby R-Ala. right during his meeting with U.S. congressional delegation in Moscow Russia Tuesday

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders are scheduled to meet next Wednesday and Thursday at the alliance's headquarters in Brussels.

Mr. Huntsman said the president recognizes the challenge of dealing with Russian Federation, and that every president since the end of the Cold War has failed to improve the relationship.

"There are great concerns in the alliance about what agreements Trump and Putin could reach", Beyer told the Funke Mediengruppe newspapers in an interview published Saturday.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin will meet alone at the summit because the president decided that this is the right time for direct communication, said Mr. Huntsman. Many NATO states, particularly along the eastern border with Russian Federation, have become increasingly alarmed about recent aggressive moves by Russia's military.

The U.S. ambassador to Russia confirmed Thursday that President Donald Trump will have a one-on-one meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland later this month. "We're entering with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort".

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.

Senegal has been eliminated on fair play tiebreaker
Colombia's prospects looked bleak a half-hour into the game when playmaker James Rodriguez limped out of the game due to injury. Japan are still there; they got there by virtue of "fair play" and though it wasn't very fair at the end, they won't care.

Separately, U.S. Representative to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison told reporters Thursday that the alliance is moving forward together, and "everyone has the same goal, and that is a strong deterrent and an alliance that is unified" against threats like Russian Federation and China.

Administration officials have also said that subjects discussed with Putin would include Syria, where the administration is looking for a political settlement that would allow the withdrawal of USA troops there.

On the issue of arms control, the official said the USA intends to raise Russian violations of the INF arms treaty during the meeting and discuss the fate of arms control agreements between the two countries. "We all talk about it a little differently", he said, "but the president has talked about it in his own way". He is due to arrive in Helsinki the evening of July 15 for meetings the next morning with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

"The president believes a better relationship with Russia would be good for both America and Russia, but the ball really is in Russia's court and the president will continue to hold Russia accountable for its malign activity", Jon Huntsman, U.S. ambassador to Russia, told reporters on a conference call.

The summit will include a one-on-one sit down followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with advisers and a working lunch.
