Russian Ambassador to US Says No Secret Deals Reached between Putin, Trump

MOSCOW – The presidents of Russia and the United States did not arrive at any secret agreements during their talks in Helsinki, according to Russia’s ambassador to the US on Wednesday.

Anatoly Antonov’s statements came amid a backlash against comments made by US President Donald Trump over Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, an accusation that US intelligence agencies have confirmed but Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has denied on multiple occasions.

“There are no secret agreements reached at the meetings held in Helsinki, as far as I know,” Antonov told press in Moscow.

The diplomat said economic cooperation between both countries had been discussed between the two heads of state, but sanctions against Russia were not addressed during the talks.

He said Russia would try to help Trump normalize bilateral relations, but admitted it would not be easy for the US president.

The meeting between Trump and Putin on Monday lasted four hours and featured a one-on-one meeting between the pair, but it ended without any agreements being announced.

On Tuesday, Trump offered clarifications on remarks he made during Monday’s press conference with Putin after their talks, saying: “The sentence should have been: ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.’”

On Monday, Trump had said: “I don’t see any reason why it would be (Russia),” that interfered in the US elections.
