Bolton To Visit Moscow To Broker Summit With Putin

Politico reports:

National security adviser John Bolton will visit Moscow next week to discuss a potential meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White House said on Thursday morning.

“On June 25-27, U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton will meet with U.S. allies in London and Rome to discuss national security issues, and travel to Moscow to discuss a potential meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin,” National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis said in a tweet.

Trump said last week he thinks Russia should be readmitted to the G-7. He emphasized having a cordial relationship with Russia, something the president has also stressed when talking about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who he met with earlier this month in an effort to strike a denuclearization agreement.
