Trump cancelled his meeting with the Russian president on Thursday after being briefed on the Kerch Strait incident, in which several Ukrainian Navy vessels and their crews were detained for violating Russia’s maritime borders. Russian President Vladimir Putin has revealed the content of his brief informal conversation with US President Trump at a cultural dinner in Buenos Aires for G20 summit leaders, an event which was closed off to the press. “In a nutshell, I answered his questions about this incident in the Black Sea,” Putin said, speaking to reporters at his post-summit press conference. “He has his own position, I have my own position; we each stuck to our own views, but in any case I informed him about our perspective on this incident,” he added. Earlier, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that Putin and Trump had spoken at the dinner, but provided no further details.
