N. Korea on agenda of Trump-Abe meeting

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted thousands of children and their families at the White House Easter Egg Roll - an annual tradition that came with a side of politics.

"When our presidents spoke on the phone, Trump suggested having the meeting in Washington at the White House", Kremlin foreign policy aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Monday.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that the two leaders had discussed a meeting "at a number of potential venues, including the White House". "We have nothing further to add at this time".

Trump had previously said that he would "probably get together in the not-too-distant future" with Putin to "discuss the arms race" following that call. "This is quite an interesting, positive idea".

Some politicians from Mr Trump's Republican party had criticised him for making the congratulatory call to Mr Putin.

"We want to hope that. one day, at one time or another we can arrive at the start of a serious and constructive dialogue".

The White House is opening the gates for its biggest social event of the year, the annual Easter Egg Roll.

After se statements, White House lowered possibility of an imminent announcement about a meeting.

In the two weeks since the call, relations have spiraled downward, with the United States and numerous nations in Europe and elsewhere agreeing to the simultaneous expulsion of scores of Russian diplomats in retaliation for the March 4 nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Salisbury, England.

In face of Russia's growing global isolation after chemical attack in UK, Kremlin tried on Monday to mend ties with USA, and especially with President Donald Trump.
