US official says Putin invited to visit Washington next year

President Vladimir Putin warned on Wednesday of a new arms race if America pulls out of weapons treaties, and said Russian Federation would respond "in kind" to any new United States missiles placed on European soil. It was not immediately clear if Putin had accepted the invitation.

Bolton said that the Paris meeting would be brief and more of "a base-touching exercise". "We don't know anything about their concrete plans, where and when they might deploy their new systems".

After the Helsinki encounter, Mr Trump was accused by opponents, and even some members of his own Republican Party, of failing to stand up to the Russian leader.

Mr Putin said dismantling a global arms control system was "very risky", adding Russian Federation was concerned that the U.S. had abandoned the Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty, planned to ditch the INF, and left the future of the New Start unclear.

Trump and Putin met previously in Helsinki, Finland.

"We may - it's being discussed right now", the president told reporters at the White House.

Interim CBI chief's orders including mass transfers on hold
Earlier, Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that Gandhi and other leaders were arrested from the CBI headquarters. Rao also has the charge of additional director, along with A K Sharma and Praveen Sinha, both from the Gujarat cadre.

Speaking at a press conference in Moscow, Putin told reporters Russian Federation would respond in kind to the deployment of USA nuclear missiles to European countries.

The pair would likely talk about Trump's recent decision to pull the United States out of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, known as the INF.

Mr. Trump has said it is in US interests to establish a solid working relationship with Mr. Putin. Because we have such a wealth: I did a really good job.

Trump said Tuesday he will "probably" meet with Putin during the visit.

Bolton said he did not know whether the presidents of the United States and Russian Federation would address relations with Georgia at their upcoming face-to-face because the meeting will be brief and its agenda remains unknown.
