Ukraine urges German naval presence in the Black Sea

Vladimir Putin president of Russia

Trump tweeted earlier on Thursday before arriving in Argentina for the G-20 Summit that "based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russian Federation, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting.in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin".

He said he wanted to deescalate the situation but lamented that Russian President Vladimir Putin has refused to talk to him since the beginning of the crisis.

Marcos Brindicci / Reuters President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin are seen during the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Friday.

"As for top-level contacts, I am not against them", Putin said about talks with Poroshenko, according to the Russian state-run news agency TASS.

A 2003 Russia-Ukraine agreement designates the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait as shared internal waters.

Merkel said she had also discussed Syria with Putin, "especially. the Idlib region", where a fragile ceasefire has been negotiated between rebels and Syrian army forces backed by Moscow.

Ahead of his visit to Argentina, the president said he would discuss with Trump the Manbij issue, a matter which continues to be an obstacle in the reconciliation of strained relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies despite a deal made for cooperation.

The wedding festivities have been taking place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace which has been closed for tourists and visitors since. The couple officially tied the knot today in a Christian wedding ceremony in presence of their families and friends.

He says Putin did not have an opportunity to respond to his remarks during the meeting of leaders.

On November 25, three warships of the Ukrainian Navy violated the rules of passage through Russia's territorial waters while en route from the Black Sea to the Azov Sea.

Earlier, Putin grinned broadly and welcomed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman like a long-lost friend with an enthusiastic hand-shake after the group photo, where Trump looked on sombrely and Xi stood impassively.

As part of his plea deal, he admitted he talked to Trump about the Moscow deal more times than he had previously stated and also briefed Trump family members.

In a separate interview with N-TV broadcaster, the retired politician also accused Ukraine of trying to ignite a direct confrontation between Russian Federation and Germany.

Putin gave few details of the conversation, which happened December 1 on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina.
