Washington: US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in a bilateral meeting at the G20 Summit in Japan this week are expected to discuss Iran, Ukraine, Syria, arms control and other mutual security matters, a senior US administration official said.
"The president (Trump) is anticipating meeting with President Putin at the G20," the official said on Monday. "It is expected to be a conversation that will focus primarily on regional security issues including Iran, Ukraine, Syria, and the Middle East. They should also touch on arms control issues and on improving the bilateral relationship."
The official added that there is no timeline available on the anticipated meeting between both leaders at the summit since scheduling is still being worked out.
Recently, on June 20, 2019, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) shot down a United States RQ-4A Global Hawk BAMS-D surveillance drone with a Khordad-3 surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz near Tambaseyun-e Kuh Mobarak, Hormozgan Province, Iran.
Iranian officials claimed that the drone violated their airspace, while U.S. officials claimed that the drone was in international airspace.
