Speaking at a rally in Great Falls, Montana, US President Donald Trump said he expected to have a good meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin later this month and suggested that a "good relationship" might come out of it.

Moreover, Trump emphasized he had been annoyed by media who kept asking if he were ready to face Putin.

“Will I be prepared? I’m totally prepared. I have been preparing for this stuff my whole life!” the president said. “Trust me, we’ll do just fine… and I might even end up having a good relationship.”

Trump Determined Now Is Time For Direct Talks Between Him and Putin - Huntsman
Trump is going to have a one-on-one meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16. He stressed that getting along with Russia, as well as with China and other countries was generally “a good thing.”

On Thursday, a senior US administration official revealed agenda for the upcoming summit.

"I am guessing that this whole category of strategic stability, which is kind of fancy bundling of various arms control features, will be prominent on the agenda and part of that will be Russia’s violations of the INF Treaty," the official said. "That will then play into what likely will be a discussion on New START."
