Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will meet for their first official summit together in less than two weeks. The meeting is a momentous occasion for both nations following years of escalated political tensions. However, the realization of what this summit means for other countries and international relations as a whole is only starting to come into full focus.

British diplomats have told reporters they fear the unpredictability and impulsiveness of Trump and what he might agree to in a one-on-one meeting with Putin.

One senior British politician told The Guardian: “People say Donald Trump’s strength is that he thinks outside the box. But that is not right. He does not even know what the box is.”

The Trump-Putin meet comes straight after a string of important international summits for the US President. Trump will already be in Europe for a Nato summit on July 11 and 12, before a biliteral meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May. He will then meet Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on July 16.
