Shelby expressed hope the summit "will be the beginning, maybe, of a new day".

American "political will" has shifted in a positive manner toward better U.S.

Peskov was responding to a CNN report on Monday that said Trump plans to meet face-to-face with Putin at their July 16 meeting before allowing aides to join them.

Most recently, the USA leader angered European leaders when he reportedly suggested last month that he may be willing to reverse US policy and recognize Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea from neighboring Ukraine. Trump pulled the US out of the deal earlier this year.

Peskov said on July 2 that the Russian president was open to searching for compromises with Trump on "all" issues except the status of Ukraine's Crimea region, which Moscow claims is part of Russia.
