White House: Trump 'open' to meeting Vladimir Putin in Moscow – media
President Trump is not ruling out a trip to Moscow if he receives an invitation from the Kremlin, the White House said Friday.
"President Trump looks forward to having President [Vladimir] Putin to Washington after the first of the year, and he is open to visiting Moscow upon receiving a formal invitation," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement, Washington Examiner reported.
A possible trip to Russia by Trump comes after Putin said Friday he invited Trump to Moscow.
"We are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow. He has this invitation already and I told him about it," Putin said during an appearance at the BRICs summit in Johannesburg.
But Putin added there "has to be necessary conditions" for a second one-on-one meeting between the two leaders.
Trump and Putin met July 16 in Helsinki for their first formal summit.
