Trump and Putin had another, undisclosed conversation at G20
US President Donald Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had another, undisclosed conversation at this month’s G20, the White House has confirmed.
The extra conversation happened during a private meal of heads of state at the G20 summit in Hamburg earlier in the month.
Mr Trump left his seat and headed to Mr Putin, who had been sitting next to Mr Trump’s wife, Melania, US media said. The US president was alone with Mr Putin, apart from the attendance of the Russian president’s official interpreter.
They spoke towards the end of a formal dinner but the White House has not revealed what was discussed.
President Trump who has condemned media revelations of the talks called it “sick.”
The relationship between both leaders is still under scrutiny amid allegations of Russian interference in the US election.
US intelligence agencies believe Moscow tried to tip the election in Mr Trump’s favour, something both Russia and Mr Trump deny.
