US President Donald Trump told reporters in Buenos Aires on Friday that the “sole reason” for cancelling a previously scheduled meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin was the November 25 Kerch Strait incident, in which three Ukrainian navy vessels were impounded by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) after they violated Russian waters.

“Ukraine. Purely and simply, Ukraine. We don’t like what happened, we’re not happy about it, nobody is,” explained the US leader.

He immediately added: “Hopefully they’ll be able to settle it out soon because we look forward to meeting with President Putin.”

Trump made this remark during a joint press conference with Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, which took place on the sidelines of G20 summit held between November 30 – December 1 in the Argentine capital.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
