The U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation on Thursday described President Donald Trump's one-on-one meeting with Russia'sVladimir Putin in Helsinki later this month as an accomplishment "in itself".
"The ball is really in Russia's court and the president will continue to hold Russian Federation responsible for its malign activity", Mr. Huntsman told reporters.
"We're entering [the talks with Russia] with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort", he added.
