US-Russia summit: Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin meet in Helsinki

Trump and Putin shake hands in July 2017 at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. 

The meeting takes place on July 16.

President Donald Trump will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on July 16, making US allies even more nervous about the growing closeness between Washington and Moscow. The meeting comes just days after Trump hurled insults at countries like Germany at the NATO summit.

The two leaders are likely to discuss election meddling, the war with Syria, and the North Korean threat — but the most important outcome of the meeting may be something almost no one is talking about: the extension of the New Start nuclear treaty between the United States and Russia.

The four-hour meeting will be one of the most anticipated summits in years — and experts say they think Putin will come out of it with the upper hand.
