MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The issues touched upon during the meeting will include the relations with Russia and NATO.
According to the Spiegel magazine, Heusgen, known for criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign policy, will also hold a meeting with Trump's National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn, in turn, has earlier stressed the need to cooperate with Moscow.
The German government is concerned over the intention of Trump to normalize the relations with Moscow, the publication reads. Trump has repeatedly noted during his public speeches and interviews that "it would be nice" to have a good relationship with Russia.
Berlin is also reportedly concerned about Trump's attitude toward NATO, who has repeatedly said during his presidential campaign that Washington should review its relationships with NATO allies which do not contribute enough to the alliance.
