WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump believes that Russia should be part of discussions affecting global foreign policy issues, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday as Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin prepared to meet next month.

Pompeo told a Senate committee that Trump would emphasize during any meeting with Putin that Russian meddling in US elections was unacceptable.Asked whether Russia should be part of the G7 group of most industrialized nations, Pompeo said Trump should speak for himself, adding, "The president deeply believes that having Russia be part of these important geostrategic conversations is inevitable, and there's a long history of that."
