KREMLIN SAYS TRUMP INVITED PUTIN TO WHITE HOUSE

President Trump floated hosting Russian President Vladimir Putin for a White House summit, the Kremlin said Monday. Mr. Trump recently suggested the two might meet soon to “discuss the arms race,” after he congratulated Putin on his reelection late last month.

But White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied plans for such a meeting were being made yet and no major international summits are slated until November.

“Trump proposed holding a meeting at the White House in Washington,” Putin’s top foreign policy aide, Yury Ushakov, told reporters. Ushakov said the invitation had been extended by Mr. Trump during his phone call with Putin on March 20, but he also added that the two sides have not had any “concrete discussions” about a summit since their phone conversation.

DONALD TRUMP SIGNS TAIWAN TRAVEL ACT, DRAWING CHINA’S IRE

Protester holds Taiwanese and US flags

US President Donald Trump has signed a law promoting official exchanges between the US and Taiwan. The move could further strain US-China ties.

Trump on Friday signed legislation promoting contacts between Washington officials and their Taiwanese counterparts, angering China, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory.

The Taiwan Travel Act will allow unrestricted two-way travel for officials from the United States and Taiwan, thus restoring direct official US contacts with the self-ruled island, which were cut in 1979 when Washington switched diplomatic recognition from Taipei to Beijing.

The White House said the bill, which was passed unanimously by Congress, would go into effect on Saturday morning even without the president’s signature.

The United States still does not have formal ties with Taiwan, but is required by law to help it with self-defense.
