MOSCOW (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that he was ready to hold talks with U.S. President Donald Trump if the chance arose, but thought Trump’s re-election campaign could complicate U.S. Russia relations.

Trump has said he expects to meet Putin at a G20 summit in Japan this month.
