American President Donald Trump is set to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir V. Putin next week in Germany.

Meeting is going to take place amid certain controversies

This news was announced by the National Security Adviser of the White House Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster on Thursday. This meeting has been arranged at a time when there are escalating tensions between both the superpowers regarding two main issues.

The first issue being the Russian government's interference in the 2016 Presidential election of the United States and the second issue was regarding Trump's associates wanting to set up a secondary means of communication between Moscow and Trump's team during the 2016 election.

Details regarding the meeting's agenda

No further details were spilled regarding the topics that will come under discussion in the highly anticipated meeting, the National Security adviser said “There’s no specific agenda — it’s really going to be whatever the president wants to talk about.”

Both Presidents will meet in Hamburg, Germany, July 7th and 8th, where they will be attending the G20 economic summit meeting.

This meeting is going to be the first face-to-face meeting and discussion between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin since the American President took charge of office in January. Just last month, both the leaders had talked about scheduling a meeting when they had a conversation on phone about ending the crisis in Syria.

The two presidents have talked over the phone three times. Their first conversation took place in January when they talked about the crisis in Syria and Ukraine. The second call happened in April, in which Donald Trump condemned the blasts that took place in a subway train in Russia. The most recent call, being the one in May, they discussed the possibility of a ceasefire in Syria.

Donald Trump did raise some eyebrows when he praised the Russian President during his presidential election campaign.He later denied having any sort of "relationship" with Vladimir Putin.

The President also asked his National Security Council staff to draft some “deliverables” for him to pass along to the Russian President during their meeting on the sidelines of the G20 economic summit.

National Security adviser General McMaster further said that the American President also wants to identify the potential areas of collaboration with the Russian government.
