Rex Tillerson Claims Trump Opened G20 Meeting By Confronting Putin On Election Meddling, Putin Denied

The Associated Press reports:

Tillerson says President Trump opened his meeting with Vladimir Putin raising concern about Russian interference in US election, and that Putin denied playing a role.

Putin says he had a long conversation with President Donald Trump, and says that “many issues have piled up, including Ukraine, Syria, some bilateral and other issues.” He says he and Trump also spoke about “fighting terrorism and cybersecurity” during their two-plus-hour meeting.

Putin made the comments at the beginning of a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He offered apologies to Abe for running late after his meeting with Trump stretched far longer than originally scheduled.
