President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met July 16 in Helsinki for a historic summit hosted by Finnish President Sauli Niinistö.
Among the topics discussed between both leaders are the possible extension and expansion of an Obama-era arms control treaty known as New START, which expires in 2021 and aims to reduce the nuclear weaponry of both countries.
The alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US elections, Syria, Ukraine, NATO and US economic sanctions were also approached during the high-profile meeting.
"President Donald J. Trump and President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation will meet on July 16, 2018, in Helsinki, Finland. The two leaders will discuss relations between the United States and Russia and a range of national security issues," the White House statement said.
