When questioned about the need for a private meeting between the two, a White House official said it's coming at the right time for direct communication and referred to Trump's recent success at the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The senior administration official stressed that while United States officials have "repeatedly" raised election meddling in meetings with Russian officials, "the fact of the matter is we have not had the kinds of conversations, direct conversations, across the table conversations about things like election meddling and malign activity that really do need to take place".
Mr. Huntsman said the US has repeatedly confronted Russian Federation about the election hacking, despite Mr. Trump frequently diminishing the issue and repeating Mr. Putin's own denials of meddling.
Huntsman cited Trump's meeting earlier this month with North Korean Kim Jong Un as having "reduced tension on the Korean Peninsula", and said that any reduction in tension with Russian Federation "would be on a much bigger scale".

Huntsman stressed the importance of going in to any meeting with Russian Federation "with eyes wide open".

Administration officials have also said that subjects discussed with Putin would include Syria, where the administration is looking for a political settlement that would allow the withdrawal of USA troops there.
Speaking of the possible topics of the upcoming meeting, Huntsman said "some of them might be around strategic stability and arms control". He knows the facts and the details and he's discussed it. "That's the reason why we will continue to have talks in the NATO-Russia Council".
The two ambassadors laid out a preliminary schedule for Trump's travels. He is due to arrive in Helsinki the evening of July 15 for meetings the next morning with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.
