White House press secretary issued a statement blaming the "Russian Witch Hunt Hoax".
"No one ever talks about the actual issues and what's being done to combat Russian Federation because that's not the shiny object", she said.
Peskov said the meeting would take place Saturday at around noon, while Russian state media reported the leaders would meet at the Park Hyatt in Buenos Aires. We haven't terminated that meeting. The filing says Cohen explored a hotel deal in Moscow for about six months in 2016, and that Russians with ties to the Kremlin wanted to get Mr. Trump to visit Russia and meet Mr. Putin.
Trump arrived in Buenos Aires for the summit late Thursday night, marking the first time he has set foot in Latin America in his almost two years in office and kicking off what promises to be a whirlwind 48-hour visit.
"The point I'm trying to make: if you want to talk about the Mueller investigation, let's have that talk - and the dealings that Trump had with Russian Federation before he got into office".
Bolton did not confirm whether the situation in Ukraine would be on the table.
This was not the first instance of apparent mixed messages during Trump's appearance Friday. Convened in 1999 by Europe and Canada as a gathering of foreign and finance ministers and largely ignored for the next decade, it won a battlefield promotion during the financial crisis of 2008, when it was elevated by common consent to summit status because it included China, South Korea, and other important USA creditor nations. 25 Nov border Russian ship rammed the RAID tug of the Ukrainian military in the Azov sea. Kiev and Moscow have offered conflicting accounts of what happened, each accusing the other of violating the laws of the sea.
Poroshenko told Bild he also wanted North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to deploy warships to the Sea of Azov.
Bolton has pushed for Trump to withdraw the United States from the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty over what US officials called Moscow's violation of it.
In August the USA said it was imposing new sanctions on Russian Federation over the case. He will also be tiptoeing through political landmines, and avoiding a lot of curious (and perhaps gloating) foreign leaders who will doubtlessly be wondering how long he can last in office.
Volodymyr Omelyan, Ukraine's infrastructure minister, said on Thursday Russia had imposed a de facto blockade on two Ukrainian ports on the Sea of Azov by barring ships from leaving and entering the sea via the Kerch Strait. I don't have any doubts that some of our Western partners knew about it or even participated in planning it.
"If this is so, [Putin] will have a couple of additional hours on the program for useful meetings on the sidelines of the summit", a spokesman told state-run news agency TASS. "The assessments that we hear and the informational campaign underway right now, only prove it", she said.
However, because Mr Putin's net worth is unknown, whether he is wealthier than President Trump is also not known.
The Ukrainian vessels - a tug and two gunboats - were trying to pass through the Kerch Strait from the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov, but were refused access and chased into worldwide waters by 10 Russian vessels.
