Trump 'open' to visiting Moscow for meeting with Putin

In his remarks Friday in South Africa at a summit for leaders of developing nations, Putin said the high-level dialogue between Moscow and Washington was continuing in spite of the harsh reaction to Mr. Trump's Helsinki performance in the U.S. When the Kremlin seemed cool to the idea, the White House backed away, suggesting that the two men should wait to meet until "after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over", as national security adviser John Bolton put it. Bolton added that the two countries had agreed to put off the meeting until "after the first of the year".

US President Donald Trump is "open" to travelling to Moscow after a surprise invite from Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White House has said.

But shouldn't some presidential meetings remain private?

"Despite the difficulties, in this particular case difficulties linked to the internal political situation in the United States, life goes on and our contacts continue", the Russian leader said. "I am ready for this". "We are ready for such meetings".

Trump and Putin may meet on the sidelines of an worldwide conference at some point, the Russian government had said, but the upshot of Friday's back-and-forth was that both leaders want another bilateral summit as well at some point. "By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him of this".

A White House statement said the meeting addressed threats to elections "from malign foreign actors" and efforts on providing cyber security assistance to state and local authorities.

"There are some things you can't do over the phone", he added.
