MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump would raise the “full range of issues” with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a forthcoming summit between the two leaders.

Bolton, who had met Putin for talks earlier on Wednesday, also said he did not think there was “anything unusual” about Trump meeting Putin.

Bolton helped Moscow and Washington strike a deal to hold the summit, a move likely to worry some U.S. allies and draw a fiery reaction from some of Trump’s critics at home.
