White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders has confirmed the future meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"As the President himself confirmed on March 20, hours after his last call with President Putin, the two had discussed a bilateral meeting in the not-too-distant future at a number of potential venues, including the White House. We have nothing further to add at this time," Sanders said on Monday, April 2.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told Russian news agencies on Monday, April 2, that Trump invited Putin to the White House during a telephone conversation on March 20.
