The meeting, to be held in Helsinki on July 16, is the first major summit between the two leaders and comes as relations between Moscow and Washington have sunk to levels not seen since the Cold War. "We are competitors, but we don't necessarily need to be adversaries". "We recognise that the world is better off, I believe, if Russia and the U.S. have fewer tensions, get along a little better", Senator Richard Shelby said during the meeting with Lavrov at the Russian foreign ministry.

The subject came up on Outnumbered today, when the panel talked about how Trump not only wants to meet with Putin one-on-one, and the indications that no Democrats were invited to the meeting in Finland. We all talk about it a little differently and the president has talked about it in his own way, ' said the official.

The US delegation is in Russian Federation until Thursday, ahead of the summit planned in Helsinki on July 16, at a time of high tension between Russian Federation and the West.

Lavrov also congratulated the delegation on the forthcoming US Independence Day and wished them well on hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The lawmakers were joined for the meeting with Lavrov by U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman.

The US senators are due to meet with the upper house of the Russian parliament later Tuesday. The European Union extended economic sanctions against Russian Federation expiring at the turn of July by six months, press service of the EU Council said on Thursday.

President Trump himself has spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the issue.

Ms Hutchinson said that 16 member countries are on track to hit the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation target of spending 2 per cent of GDP on defence, framing the change as a victory for Mr Trump's agenda.
