PARIS (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that Moscow wants to re-establish large-scale dialogue with the United States on the famous Cold War era missile treaty, Russian news agencies reported.

President Donald Trump said last month that Washington would withdraw from the interim nuclear power treaty because Russia was violating the pact, bringing a warning about the retaliatory measures from Moscow.

Putin, speaking on TV RT France supported by the Kremlin, said he could meet Trump in the margins of a G-20 summit in Argentina, according to the agencies.
