HELSINKI (AP) - President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are meeting privately, joined only by translators, in the Finnish Presidential Palace.

Trump deferred to Putin to make opening remarks, nodding along as his comments in Russian were translated. Trump predicted that the pair will have an "extraordinary relationship."

Russian President Vladimir Putin is famous for his tardiness at official talks, and was late for talks with U.S. President Donald Trump. Putin long has sought to meet with Trump, but the Russian leader was 35 minutes late to arrive at the closely watched summit in the Finnish capital. It's part of a long tradition since Putin's first election in 2000.
