  • Trump arrives in Argentina for G20 Summit

"One can not help but see a dishonest competition increasingly taking the place of honest dialogue based on equality among states", Putin told leaders of emerging economies as the summit opened in Buenos Aires. I have my own.

Ukraine's leader called on Germany and its allies to boost their naval presence in the Black Sea to deter Russian Federation from further aggression in the region and said Russian Federation was blockading Ukrainian ports on the nearby Sea of Azov.

After the summit with Putin in July, Trump was widely criticised for failing to publicly denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 United States election and appearing to accept Putin's denials of such activity. Moscow explained such a move by internal political reasons.

Russia is resisting global calls to release three Ukrainian naval ships that its border patrols fired upon and seized in the strait near Russian-annexed Crimea last weekend.

Though the substance of Trump's conversation with Putin on Friday was not detailed by the White House, Putin said that it had to do with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Still, what Putin really wants is to make a deal with Trump.

In an exclusive interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the sidelines of the global summit, Pompeo said Trump scrapped the anticipated meeting "because the Russians behaved in a way that is deeply inconsistent with worldwide law". Moscow says Ukrainian navy ships entered Russian waters while trying to cross the strait without prior notice, ignoring orders to stop.

"I hope it will end someday".

Merkel and Macron met Putin separately on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.

Putin strongly denied any Russian breaches of the pact.

In his press conference, Putin lamented that a formal meeting with Trump wouldn't take place.

Asked if he might consider exchanging the captive sailors for Russians in Ukrainian detention, Putin said: "We are not considering a swap and Ukraine did not raise this issue, and it's too early to talk about that", Putin said when asked if he would considering exchanging the sailors for Russians detained by Ukraine. The Kremlin said that Putin would use the time that had been set aside for talks with Trump to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
