"In Helsinki, the organization of future contacts was not discussed. But a few days later, the US side came up with a proposal to hold the next summit in Washington at the end of this year. This proposal was delivered by US National Security Adviser Bolton. Then, as you know, Trump has repeatedly referred to this proposal in his public appearances and on Twitter," Ushakov told reporters.
On Thursday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump had asked Bolton to invite Putin to visit the United States in the autumn, adding that the consultations on the meeting had already started.
