The issue of Russian-annexed Crimea is among other subjects on the agenda of talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Germany, according to CNN.


"Even without the election question, the meeting between Trump and Putin is key for the future of Europe and the Middle East. The question of U.S. sanctions against Russia for its incursion into Crimea, the future of Syria after the impending fall of ISIS and how to prevent American and Russian forces active in the country from clashing, and willingness of the US to stand by NATO allies are all in the balance," CNN reported.
