    No problems were solved during meeting of US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, but a dialogue on some tough issues started, US National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond McMaster said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He said that the most important thing coming out of the meeting was the importance of having a bilateral relationship between the two countries that could help to work on problems together, adding it was a "wide-ranging, substantive discussion".

    "No problems were solved.  Nobody expected any problems to be solved in that meeting.  But it was a beginning of a dialogue on some tough problem sets that we'll begin now to work on together," McMaster said at a press conference, as quoted in a White House press release.
