Senator Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin's government

Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin's press secretary, confirmed that a missive had been received "through diplomatic channels", and will soon be delivered to the president's administration.

The Kentucky conservative said the letter emphasized "the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges".

In addition, Putin in Helsinki allegedly spoke with trump about the new ban the deployment of weapons in outer space and called for the establishment of a consultative mechanism at the level of Ministers of defence and foreign Affairs. Paul said in a statement on Wednesday.

Paul remained supportive of Trump following the US President's performance during a news conference with Putin in July.

But senior national security officials - including the directors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, national intelligence and Department of Homeland Security - warned last week that the threat of meddling from Russian Federation is ongoing.

He also held talks in Moscow with parliamentarians and pledged to block new sanctions against Russian Federation.

A USA official provided to CNN the text of the letter, which read: "I would like to introduce Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and a voice for expanding dialogue with the Russian Federation".

But earlier this week, Paul extended an invitation to Russian lawmakers to visit Washington, D.C., in an effort to prompt exchanges between the two countries' parliamentary bodies. Trump's top intelligence official, Dan Coates, has said that he is in the dark about what Trump discussed with Putin in their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki.

The draft of the order viewed by the Post would allow the US government to impose sanctions on any foreign individual or entity that sticks their nose in a USA election.
