President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shake hands July 16, 2018, at the beginning of a meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland. When Trump and Putin meet this week on the sidelines of an international summit in Japan, it will mark a new chapter in a closely watched relationship that crackles with questions and contradictions.

MOSCOW — The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump on the sidelines of an international summit in Japan.

Trump has said he plans to meet with Putin during the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, and Putin has welcomed a meeting, saying he’s ready for dialogue.

Wednesday’s statement by Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, marks official Kremlin acknowledgement of the meeting.

Ushakov said the meeting is set for Friday and is expected to touch on arms control and international crises, including the Iranian nuclear deal, Syria, North Korea and Ukraine.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
