Syria will dominate the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, Yuri Ushakov, the Russian presidential aide, told reporters on Friday.

“There are very many [issues] in the context of Syria, and if we mention regional conflicts, as I personally see it, Syria will be a focus of the talks between Putin and Trump,” the Kremlin official said.

Ushakov pointed out that other crises would be also on the table of the talks, namely North Korea, the Iran nuclear deal and eastern Ukraine.

As for North Korea, “positive shifts can be seen in the Korean issue, in particular US president’s personal efforts,” he noted.

The wrong headline to this story. It should read, ‘Putin to dominate Trump.

Trump doesn’t even dominate himself. Dominating him seems a bit dubious.
