The Kremlin says it has not been notified of a cancellation of the much-anticipated meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Russian news agencies on Thursday quoted Dmitry Peskov, Putin's spokesman, as saying that the Kremlin only learned about the cancellation from Trump's tweet. He says the Russian delegation is already on its way to the G-20 summit in Argentina.
