Energy policy could be on the agenda for a speculated first meeting between US president Donald Trump and Russia’s president Vladimir Putin, says a former Russian energy minister.

The Trump-Putin tie-up was mooted in the Duma, the Russian Parliament, at the end of February, when Russian news agencies Pravda and RIA Novosti reported preparations were under way, although a White House spokesman for president Trump told on 9 March: “We do not have any announcements at this time.”
