US President Donald Trump said Monday he does not expect to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin when they attend World War I commemorations in Paris at the end of this week. Trump said he was "not sure we'll have a meeting in Paris -- probably not."

However, they "will be meeting at the G20" summit in Argentina at the end of November, he said. Expectations have been growing for a new Trump-Putin meeting as tensions pile up over the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) and US sanctions against Moscow.

Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton had said during a trip to Moscow in October that the White House wanted a Paris meeting and Putin said he was interested. Both leaders will be in Paris for the November 11 World War I commemorations, which 60 heads of state and government are expected to attend.
