US State Department notes only "modest proposals" as Putin-Trump meeting "takeaways"

US State Department notes only "modest proposals"
US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said here on Wednesday that there were "three takeaways" from the meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that could only be seen as "modest proposals."

In a press briefing, Nauert said that the proposals included a high-level working group with business leaders of the two countries, an expert council that gathers political scientists, diplomats and former military officials, and a meeting between the two nations' National Security Councils "to discuss follow-up meetings."

"These are certainly all modest proposals. The president had said going into this that we wouldn't solve all the world's problems in one meeting, in one conversation with the Russian government," she said, rejecting to call them agreements as Moscow had done.

Trump met with Putin on July 16 in Finland, and returned back to a blistering bipartisan attacks over his reconciliatory tone in Finland over Russia's alleged meddling in the US 2016 elections.
