The meeting between the two leaders was initially going to be on the sidelines of this week's G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. The details of his meeting with Trump haven't been revealed, but a photo-op and brief remarks are typical for such one-on-one world leader meetings.

The White House said Trump has calls scheduled Monday morning with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

Maradona, who recently visited Russian Federation to attend the FIFA Confederations Cup final between Chile and Germany, was questioned by journalists about his opinion on the country's leader, Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart Donald Trump.

The White House said no formal agenda had been set out for the talks, though Trump was said to be keen to promote co-operation over the North Korean threat and Syria.

Xi's visit comes amid a flare-up of tensions in U.S.

China and Russian Federation have agreed that their bilateral relations will not be affected by foreign policy changes, Xi said at a ceremony awarding him Russia's highest order given for outstanding service to the state on Tuesday.

Trump has demonstrated time and again that he doesn't care about the responsibilities of the presidency, and now he is flat out flaunting his Russian Federation scandal by confirming this meeting on the 4th of July.

Relations between the two countries are tense as the U.S. maintains sanctions against Russian Federation for its annexation of Crimea, investigates Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and seeks to avoid a clash with Russian Federation forces in Syria, where both countries are fighting the Islamic State.

The meeting, confirmed by both the White House and the Kremlin on Tuesday, will be the first in-person meeting between the two leaders and the first official bilateral meeting between a United States and Russian president in almost two years. Previously, the leaders spoke only by phone.

"Trump reiterated his determination to seek more balanced trade relations with America's trading partners".
