Trump Invites Russia's Putin to White House, Summit Not yet Planned

Putin’s pen sells for $77,170 at auction

Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to meet his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump following an invitation by the latter, but Moscow is waiting for a detailed proposal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

Lavrov told Russia's government-controlled Sputnik News that the Russian military spoke with coalition leaders and told them where Russia's "red lines" were, including geographic ones.

Military analysts say the S-300 surface-to-air missile system would boost Russia's ability to control airspace in Syria, where Moscow's forces support the government of President Bashar al Assad, and could be aimed at deterring tougher United States action.

United States president Donald Trump indicated he could make a reciprocal trip to Russian Federation if Vladimir Putin was able to accept his invitation to the White House, officials in Moscow said.

"President Putin is ready for such a meeting", Lavrov said.

Lavrov noted that despite the escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington, the USA made sure it didn't harm any Russian personnel and positions during the strikes against the regime of President Bashar Assad following a suspected chemical attack on the town of Douma.

A Russian army commander has also said that Moscow would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Assad following USA -led strikes.

The official cause of death was a self-administered overdose of the painkiller fentanyl, which is 50 times stronger than heroin. Carver County Attorney Mark Metz was scheduled to announce whether anyone would be charged.

"I am 100% sure that the military will not allow this to happen and neither President Putin nor President Trump will allow this to happen", Lavrov said. The U.S., Britain and other Western allies responded by expelling over 150 Russian diplomats, and Moscow, which has fervently denied the British accusations, responded in kind.

Joint Staff Director, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, said Thursday that USA military officials believe there was probably some chlorine and some sarin at all of three Syrian chemical weapons facilities targeted in last Saturday's missile strikes.

Further stoking tensions was the purported chemical attack in Douma on April 7.

The US attacked Russia's ally, Â Syria, last weekend on the allegation that the Syrian military conducted a chemical attack that killed civilians in a rebel-held area near Damascus.

Lavrov said Russian Federation is now planning to supply Syria with modern S-300 air defense weapons to improve the country's shield against future strikes. "It's better than not having those", Lavrov said.

He said U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford "understand the unacceptability of any actions which could provoke a direct military clash" between the two superpowers.

"I'm 100 percent convinced that the military won't allow it", Lavrov said, adding that the Russian and USA presidents also "bear responsibility before the people which elected them for peace and security".
