London: The Helsinki meeting between presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will take place Monday, despite the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the November 2016 presidential election, Washington said yesterday.

"It's on," White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.

The charges were drawn up by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who is looking into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 vote and whether any members of Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow. (AFP)
