    The Russian and US presidents will discuss bilateral issues, including ways to get out of their current deadlock and normalise ties, as well as international issues, according to a Kremlin aid.

    The conversation could be a continuation of their dialogue in Helsinki and could touch upon efforts to ensure stability and disarmament.

    Earlier Trump stated that he might cancel his meeting with Putin during the G20 summit in Argentina following the Russia-Ukraine naval incident in the Kerch Strait.
