Trump and Putin agree on keeping Israel safe – not much else

Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin told the press that their two-hour face-to-face on Monday, July 16, in Helsinki, was a success. But, the impression was that there was very little agreement on the issues they touched on, including Iran, Syria or Crimea. Neither referred to the removal of Iran and its proxies from Syria, as Israel has demanded. Putin appeared to say that Israeli security was served by the Israeli-Syrian 1974 Separation of Forces agreement on the Golan and advised extending it to the Syrian-Jordanian border as well. Trump noted: “We both talk to Benjamin Netanyahu, work with him on Syria and agree on the importance of Israel’s safety.”

With regard to Iran, the US president said: “We won’t let Iran profit from our successful campaign against ISIS” and advised “pressure on Iran” to give up its nuclear plans and “stop its campaign of violence across the Middle East.” The Russian president did not pick up on this point, indicating lack of accord. When a reporter asked Trump about the US military presence in eastern Syria, he answered curtly that there are channels for dealing with US-Russian military cooperation in Syria and they were worked efficiently. That issue also appeared to have been left open.

It would seem that the high speculation ahead of the summit of a deal in the making between the two presidents for Iran to quit Syria in return for a US military pullback was pie in the sky. The two leaders also skated over the Iranian nuclear program, except for Putin’s comment that the 2015 nuclear deal was beneficial in that it advanced the non-proliferation regime.

Trump and Putin both pledged a new start for US-Russian relationship: Putin said, “The cold war is a thing of the past” and listed the world problems that would benefit from their cooperation. Trump said: “Our relations were never worse than now – until everything changed four hours ago,” when their meeting, he said “went very well.” However, the accusations of Russian meddling in the US elections hung heavily over the event. Trump said he had raised the question and the two presidents discussed it at length. “I won’t make decisions on foreign policy to appease partisan critics,” Trump insisted and repeated that no collusion had been proven. Putin stood by his rejection of the charges. “The Russian state had never interfered and never would interfere in the US election” he emphasized. “There is not a shred of evidence against us,” he said and offered to instruct Russian secret service officers to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

Other subjects touched on were successful intelligence cooperation in counter-terrorism, North Korea, Crimea, Europe and the Russian president’s hope to work with the US on fuel pricing. They both agreed that more conversations were needed to address all these issues and meanwhile joint teams would go to work to explore them further.

      POTUS Obama Administration’s Kremlinology attempted a Big Red Reset Button from a TV AD Commercial to placate Putin and approach Putin with Obama’s Words of softness but it was constantly backed by Obama’s Administration Policy, that Putin did not respect nor trust. .

      Clearly, POTUS Trump Kremlinology on Russia isn’t the same as the Trump Administration operates independently of the President at a variety of levels. Trump did not a Big Red Reset Button, Trump just Reset the American-Russia Relationship by himself.

      The America System since 1932 have invested much Power in the Office of the President, assuming for some reason that it would always be used with some kind of Normal Boundaries.

      Nothing has changed that whatsoever. Russia’s Putin still knows Trump’s Commitment is Strong with NATO making the EU Stronger by paying its Full Share for EU’s Future.

      Is there any doubt, if Putin would invade Estonia there is no way Trump would stand down unlike Obama whose Red Lines were more Gray Line. Trump, America, EU and NATO would respond and not be so kind to Putin.

      Trump is changing the way for all foreign Powers to think and to work together, and many are upset about it, because he is Right, Trump Does Not Speak Softly But Still Will Use A Big Stick, and Bullies like Iran, North Korea, and Hezbollah, and Hamas are Frighten Punks by it. At least, North Korea has seen the Light and is Learning to Deal and Change with Trump as well!

      While China, India, EU, Russia, United Kingdom, Arab Coalition, Israel and others are learning to deal with Trump and work together Regionally. Being upset with POTUS Trump forcing Change so Peace, Prosperity, and One Global No Tariff Trade System expands with those cooperate, communicate, and share together. Unlike Iran that chooses to Export Hate and Chaos.

    V. Putin’s words mean Nothing ! He cannot possibly deliver, or dis-entangle Russia’s military involvement
    in Syria and Iran, EVEN if wished for it !

    • Jul 16, 2018 @ 20:06 at 20:06

      Its because he is legally invited in Syria by the government and Russia has its own interest like eliminating terrorism, oil pipelines projects and stability in middle east.
      The zionist regime and its US dogs allies cannot be trusted with anything a part with continual lies.
      Now that israel and US dogs failed their lame plan to destroy Syria it will get back stronger and it is safe from the criminal zionist regime. I already hear the zionist barking in the distance because they couldnt destroy syria.
      They will pay for their crimes and we still look forward to deport all the zionist from where they came, Europe.

        You and your mother will be sentenced to death for your cursing the Jewish People. You and your mothers Nazi breastmilk will no longer be on this planet soon Nazi pig!

          And death shall be preferable to life for all the residue that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have cast them out, says the Lord of Hosts.

          And you shall say to them; so says the Lord: Shall they fall and not rise, if he repents, will He not return?

          Why has this people, Jerusalem, slid back a perpetual backsliding? They have held on to deceit, they refuse to repent.

          How do you say, “We are wise, and the Law of the Lord is with us”? Verily, behold it is in vain, he made a false scribes’ pen.

          Wise men were ashamed, they were broken and caught; behold they rejected the word of the Lord, now what wisdom have they

          ‘…and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father,’ for I say to you that from … stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham.

          A pig is an intelligent animal. The ignorant hateful antisemetic words were written by a lowly nazi lover who is below a pig or any animal in value.

        Antoine Rivestm one thing we all know about racists like you is that you are obsessive and cannot think of anything else.

        Do you know how funny it is for Jewish people to know the anguish you are in all the time just because of they exist?

        They enjoy their lives, you swim in bitterness and hatred. lol

        • Jul 17, 2018 @ 2:48 at 2:48

          The French nazi lover and sympathizer is useless and loathsome. Less deserving of life than a snake or pig mentioned above.

        • Jul 17, 2018 @ 4:05 at 4:05

          Ye lol i never talk about jews and im not antisemetic so these are false accusations. They were already 600k jews in jerusalem before the zionist so dont come and say shit about racism. Youll be back to europe because you are the shame for the real jews like me. Israel is a disgustig country it dosent not rrpresent any of us jews as they do huge gay parades in tel aviv so israel is not a jewish country its a homosexual fake european settlemebt of zionist.
          And facts.

          Real jews spit on israel.

      POTUS Trump reached out with soft words, hard handshake, and discussions in a 3 hour meeting on subjects vital for both America and Russia to work on and out from, and this an initial smart approach. POTUS Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, FDR and Truman worked with Stalin before after WWII. Even Khrushchev came to America and Eisenhower was about to go to the USSR in late 1950s but an American U2 Plane Downing by Soviet Missiles ended that Opportunity. JFK met with Khrushchev and their First Meeting did not go well for JFK, but they worked out the Cuban Missile Crisis. POTUS Johnson approach Hồ Chí Minh, as well as, Johnson-Kosygin Summit Meeting was the first time a Soviet Premier had met with an American President in since Khrushchev. Nixon went to Peking and Moscow to meet with Mao and Brezhnev. Ford and Carter met with Brezhnev as well. Even Reagan, HW Bush, Clinton did the same.

      Greets and Meets are Great and some work out while others fall apart, either way, strength with vigilance often rule the days ahead. Greets set the Eye to Eye, Deaf Tone, and Words. While Meets Drive the Bargains whereby Old Men and Women Ways of Working Vices of Peace that are Mistrust and Caution.

      Unlike Iran’s Robes Regimes that Fund Hezbollah-Hamas Bullies by sending Young Men and Women to make Wars Teaching and Preaching that will Lead to Courage and Hope for the Future, but never tell them, not for the Dead!

    It was quite interesting to see the Traitor and Putin thrashing and discrediting US intelligence/judicial/law enforcement. The Putin team are popping champagne right now. What a coup.

            At least 60% of the US population does. Looks like you’re also a cretin and a traitor. I’m sure you’re also enjoying getting it up the backside by the criminal clan.

    This is very interesting… It looks like Trump has a severe weakness with Russia… Does it seem like Trump is incredibly mellow with Putin? Really. After all the strong talk with the EU/UK… Russia and China. Even India. Seem above and beyond Trumps realm. And I think Trump realises, just like any president without presiding jurisdiction over these three superpowers… That Trump or any US President actually has its limits. Before a severe military/nuclear showdown… What do you think?

    Go a head Germany with helping Russian undersea Baltic gas pipeline.
    Go a head and up purchasing More & More Russian gas.

    Russia occupied Germany from 1945 to 1980.

    Vladimir Putin was KGB during this violent occupation.

    America is offering Europe LP Natural Gas.

    Russia is purchasing weapons to invade Europe with the cash Europe is giving Putin for Russian Gas.

    America is not going to help Europe when Europe is invaded.

    • Jul 17, 2018 @ 3:26 at 3:26

      Of course not. Trump is Putin’s bitch.

  • Jul 20, 2018 @ 15:55 at 15:55

    160 TB of collected data and decryption keys on flash drives, that Putin gave Trump at the meeting, will keep US intelligence busy. US traitors are trying to destroy Trump’s credibility first.
