Brussels, July 12

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he sees his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin as a “competitor” but not an “enemy”, days before they meet for a high-stakes summit.

“He’s not my enemy... ultimately he’s a competitor, he’s representing Russia, I’m representing the United States,” Trump told reporters at a NATO summit. — AFP
