Now it's in a major diplomatic row with the United Kingdom, which blames Moscow for the poisoning of a former spy, his daughter, and a British policeman in the cathedral city of Salisbury. They remain critically ill. Other issues that will be discussed during the bilateral meeting will be Ukraine, Syria, and North Korea, Trump added. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said there are now no specific details regarding the time and location of the bilateral meeting.

"The call had to do also with the fact that we will probably get together in the not too distant future so we can discuss arms, we can discuss the arms race".

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Tuesday that he doesn't consider Trump's silence an "unfriendly move".

The White House press office declined to comment on the briefing materials given to Trump.

Two sources told the outlet those cards included instructions not to congratulate Putin - and the instruction was put in capital letters to emphasize the point.

According to the Post, which cited unnamed sources, it was not clear whether Trump even read the pre-call notes.

Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona criticized the president on Twitter.

Ahead of the vote, Putin had seen his approval ratings skyrocketed since the last election in 2012, with many analysts saying the rise in his popularity is mainly due to his successful policies toward regional issues, particularly the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.

Hussain added that he hoped the charges were based on the "heinousness of the crime" and not on officer Mohamed Noor's ethnicity. A supporter of Police Officer Mohamed Noor says he was "just doing what he was trained to do" and is being treated unfairly.


"An American president does not lead the Free World by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections", tweeted McCain.

Apparently not discussed: Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA presidential campaign and the poisoning of former Russian spies in the United Kingdom with a Russian-made nerve agent.

Sanders said there are now no specific details regarding the time and location of the bilateral meeting.

Trump's failure to raise Moscow's alleged poisoning of the former Russian spy in Britain risked angering officials in London, who are trying to rally Britain's closest allies to condemn the attack.

The UK government blamed the nerve agent attack on Russian Federation, which denies any involvement.

Trump, who vowed to improve relations with Russian Federation on taking office 14 months ago, is under pressure from Congress to take a tougher stance on Putin, his inner circle and scores ofRussian oligarchs.

President Donald Trump says he wants to meet with Russia's Vladimir Putin in the "not too distant future" to discuss the "arms race" between Russian Federation and the U.S.

"The President once again has maintained that it's important for us to have a dialogue with Russian Federation, so that we can focus on some areas of shared interests", said Sanders.
