US Lawmakers in Moscow Set Stage for Trump-Putin Summit

"Indeed, we do not rule out that presidents Putin and Trump will meet face to face first, if the relevant preliminary agreement is confirmed", Peskov noted.

Peskov's comments come a week after, Putin told USA national security adviser John Bolton that Russian-American relations "were not in the best shape", during a meeting in Moscow, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

But Putin shouldn't feel the need to rig the games, Marcus said, because the Russian leader's World Cup campaign is successful just by "having a positive tournament that has gone on without a hitch".

The US delegation is in Russian Federation until Thursday, ahead of the summit planned in Helsinki on July 16, at a time of high tension between Russian Federation and the West.

The summit would offer Putin a chance to try to persuade Washington to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russian Federation over its annexation of Crimea, and supposed meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

One Middle Eastern question that would occupy centre stage in the upcoming talks between Trump and Putin will be how to coordinate a joint effort to contain some Iranian policies in the region.

"The President hopes that a meeting can help reduce tensions", US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman told reporters on a briefing call set up by the White House.

It remains to be seen if Moscow would agree, in part or in full, with the 12 American demands put forward by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in May for Iran to comply with.

Texas A&M Bush School senior lecturer and researcher on issues related to Russia Larry Napper says he supports this summit.

The leaders are also likely to discuss New START, under which both nations cut their deployed strategic nuclear warheads to no more than 1,550, the lowest level in decades.

It said they also discussed current issues including the situation in Syria and on the Korean Peninsula.
