UK welcomes Trump-Putin meeting, says it must address Russian 'malign activity'


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will on Wednesday welcome a summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, but say that it must be used to cut the risk of confrontation and address Russian "malign activity".

Trump is due to meet Putin on Monday, a meeting which has raised eyebrows among Western allies because it comes days after the U.S. leader attended a NATO summit aimed at bolstering Europe's defences against what it calls Russian aggression.
