Washington (dpa) - The second meeting lasted about one hour and took place after the more that two-hour meeting that had previously been disclosed and widely described in news reports, according to the Washington Post and other US news media.
Trump"s longer official bilateral meeting with Putin at the G20 was the first face-to-face meeting between the two presidents. The US president has said he wants to improve US-Russian relations so that they can work together on global problems like the war in Syria.

It took place at a couples-only dinner for G20 leaders on July 7, a senior administration official said, according to the news reports. Trump initiated the meeting by leaving his seat in the Hamburg Philharmonic to sit next to Putin.

The only other person present was Putin‘s official interpreter. There was no information on what they discussed.

The White House did not respond to dpa‘s request for comment.

Trump‘s longer official bilateral meeting with Putin was the first face-to-face meeting between the two presidents. The US president has said he wants to improve US-Russian relations so that they can work together on global problems like the war in Syria.

But the newly disclosed conversation could result in further criticism of the president over contacts between members of his presidential campaign and the Russian government.

Multiple probes have been launched to look into Russia‘s meddling in the election.

In another Russia-related announcement late Tuesday, the White House said Trump intended to nominate veteran diplomat and businessman Jon Huntsman as US ambassador to Russia.

If Huntsman, the former Republican governor of Utah, is confirmed by the Senate to the diplomatic post it would be his third ambassadorship. Huntsman previously served as US ambassador to China and to Singapore.

Huntsman is chairman of the foreign policy research institute Atlantic Council and heads a cancer foundation. He also sits on the boards of directors of major companies such as Hilton, Chevron and Ford. He and his wife Mary Kaye have seven children.
