USA Today: Trump, Putin to meet briefly at G-20 summit, says Kremlin spokesman

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet briefly at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, albeit only "on their feet," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday, according to a Russian-state media outlet.

According to a translation of Peskov remarks, he said "all participants will intersect" at the G-20, suggesting an encounter between Putin and Trump was inevitable at the gathering of world leaders in Buenos Aires. The Russian spokesman's statement represented the latest twist in a back-and-forth between the Trump administration and their counterparts in Moscow.
