Putin says no talks with Ukraine about release of sailors

Vladimir Putin president of Russia

Donald Trump had an "informal" conversation with Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit in Argentina on Friday, one day after the US president announced that he had made a decision to cancel a meeting with his Russian counterpart because of new developments in Russia's conflict with Ukraine.

The leaders met amid a global outcry over the death of a US -based columnist who was killed at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Russian Federation and the United States were ready to continue contact, he said.

Putin claimed his country had to detain them while it put together a legal case to show that the three Ukranian naval vessels violated Russia's territorial waters in the Sea of Azov.

On Thursday, Trump said he was canceling his scheduled meeting with the Russian leader following Russia's seizure of three Ukrainian vessels and their crews in the Black Sea region.

A positive development, added the group's trade campaigner Sujata Dey, was that some of their long-standing demands had been met. More information about Nebraska's principles for trade negotiations with Mexico and Canada can be found by clicking here .

Earlier, Putin grinned broadly and welcomed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman like a long-lost friend with an enthusiastic hand-shake after the group photo, where Trump looked on sombrely and Xi stood impassively.

Trump and Putin instead had a very brief meeting when they bumped into each other on the sidelines of the summit in Buenos Aires, but did not hold proper talks.

"However, the reason for our canceled meeting is Ukraine", she said. "If the domestic situation and the pressure from Russophobes like Ukraine and its sponsors prevents the USA president from developing normal ties with the Russian president...we will wait for another chance", Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, adding that "love can't be forced".

"The current Ukrainian authorities have no interest in resolving the conflict, especially by peaceful means", he said.

Van Dijk echoed the Swiss winger's thoughts, telling the club website: "We want to win in Paris. Everything we need, so let's go out and fight for each other.

It was also reported that The Trump Organisation was seeking a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the time he was running for president and offered Putin a $50 million penthouse apartment.

After the summit with Putin in July, Trump was widely criticised for failing to publicly denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 USA election and appearing to accept Putin's denials of such activity.

"It is regrettable that we can't succeed in holding a full-scale meeting, which is long due", Putin said, adding that issues of strategic stability would be of paramount importance.
