The Russian President Vladimir Putin and US leader Donald Trump are holding a much-anticipated first meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Germany.

The meeting started with a handshake – the second of the day between the two leaders.

“President Putin and I have been discussing various things, and I think it’s going very well,” Trump told the media during the photo session.

“We’ve had some very, very good talks, we are gonna have a talk now and obviously that will continue,” Trump added, saying there are hopes “to a lot of very positive things happening.”

“It’s an honor to be with you, thank you,” Trump concluded, offering his hand to Putin for a handshake.

“Spasibo [thank you],” the US leader added in Russian.
