U.S. President Donald Trump will join Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday for talks with visiting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the White House announced. The three will "discuss the state of the bilateral relationship," a senior Trump administration official said Monday.
The meeting, which was originally announced to involve only Pompeo and Lavrov, was widely speculated to be attended by Trump, as well.
White House National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien said such a visit by Trump would reciprocate a courtesy extended by President Vladimir Putin to Pompeo during his last visit to Moscow.
"When Pompeo has gone to Russia, Putin's seen him. And one of the things that we've said with the Chinese and the Russians is, we want reciprocity," O'Brien said on the "Face the Nation" television program.
