The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart may meet in private during their summit in Helsinki later this month.

President Putin has consistently denied that Russian Federation had had anything to do with the 2016 United States presidential elections.

A group of Republican members of Congress are also in Moscow for a rare visit to hold talks with Russian lawmakers ahead of the Trump-Putin summit.

"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.

Asked about whether the visiting USA lawmakers would meet Putin, Peskov said: "For now, it is not on the president's schedule, but we know that the American officials have planned quite wide-reaching contacts with their colleagues".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 11th, the Israeli leader's office said in a statement on Monday.

Trump and Putin will meet in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, after Trump travels to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, and to the United Kingdom.

Heading into the Helsinki summit, Trump's attacks on U.S. allies - which turned the G7 summit in Canada into a debacle - attempts to widen divides in the European Union and criticism of other institutions of the transatlantic alliance are playing directly into Putin's anti-Western goals.

"I'll talk to him about everything", Trump said on Air Force One on Friday.

He said the Kremlin was "very satisfied" that the senators were visiting Russian Federation.

Lavrov and Pompeo also discussed "a number of current issues of the world agenda, including the situation around Syria and on the Korean Peninsula", the ministry said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
