The request comes as Trump heads to the G20 summit in Osaka Japan - almost two years to the day after the Hamburg meeting Trump reportedly tried to destroy the notes from.

The White House said on Monday that Trump will also meet the Prime Ministers of India, Japan and Australia (Narendra Modi, Shinzo Abe and Scott Morrison) in addition to the previously-announced one-on-one talks with the presidents of China, Xi Jinping, and Russia, Vladimir Putin. Trump told NBC News that he "may" discuss Russian interference in the 2020 election with the Russian leader.

The official described the president's meeting with Mr Putin as "a normal event that happens at these" summits. The summit will be held June 28.

This comes in the midst of key intermingling with Japan and the United States on certain parts of the Indo-Pacific idea and likeness of perspectives with Beijing and Moscow on issues of more liberated exchange and protectionism.

Recently the U.S. tried to ease India's concerns over reports that Washington was considering capping H-1B visas to countries that force foreign companies to store data locally.

Ushakov also said Putin planned to speak publicly a number of times during the G20 and would address "existing imbalances in the global financial system".

"All that has led to nothing and the US has shown an utter lack of respect" that has made Kremlin realize that a rapprochement is elusive, Lukyanov said.

Observing that the Trump administration wants both the two countries to thrive, a senior State Department official from the Trump administration said Pompeo during his meetings in New Delhi will "convey" the "extraordinary potential to realise the collective strength of our economy" and would insist on "fair and reciprocal approach" to trade relationship.

In addition to growth and prosperity, the president will focus a lot on trade.
