President Donald Trump said Sunday that he did not discuss the issue of U.S. sanctions on Moscow during his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit.
Current sanctions won’t be lifted, he said, until problems in Syria and Ukraine are “solved.”
Trump’s remarks on sanctions contradicted those of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who told reporters Friday that Trump informed Putin that U.S. lawmakers were readying new sanctions on Russia, according to the Washington Post.
The Obama administration placed sanctions on Russia for its military intervention in Ukraine and for meddling in the 2016 presidential election. It also seized two Russian diplomatic compounds in New York and Maryland that U.S intelligence officials said were being used for espionage activity.
