Ukrainian officials say Russia has now imposed a de facto blockade on its two main ports in the Sea of Azov by allowing only ships destined for Russian ports through the strait.

Moscow accused the 24 sailors of illegally crossing the Russian border.

But the Russian president said he met Trump briefly on the sidelines of the summit.

Trump tweeted earlier on Thursday before arriving in Argentina for the G-20 Summit that "based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russian Federation, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting.in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin".

"Certainly, it's possible", Ushakov said commenting on a potential meeting between the two leaders in the future.

A 2003 Russia-Ukraine agreement designates the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait as shared internal waters.

Ukrainian TV channel "112 Ukraine" on Saturday showed Poroshenko presenting new and overhauled military aircraft, helicopters and drones to the Ukrainian army. "If the domestic situation and the pressure from Russophobes like Ukraine and its sponsors prevents the USA president from developing normal ties with the Russian president...we will wait for another chance", Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, adding that "love can't be forced".

ME exported $1.2 billion worth of products to Canada in 2017, 45 percent of its entire exports, according to the trade center. Administration officials have said publicly that the tariffs would be lifted when a new deal was reached to replace NAFTA.

Xi has in turn cast himself as a defender of stable global capitalism, a startling transformation for the leader of a communist state whose entry into the World Trade Organization less than two decades ago was controversial.

Russian Federation opened fire on and seized three Ukrainian navy ships and their crews on November 25 in an incident which Moscow and Kiev have blamed on each other, triggering a crisis that has raised fears of a wider conflict.

Huckabee Sanders did not disclose the content of their conversation, but in a press conference later Saturday Putin revealed that Trump had questioned him about Russia's seizure of Ukrainian ships in the Black Sea.

Putin said at the summit that there's been no discussion with Ukraine about releasing the sailors or the ships.

Putin also wants to talk to Trump about his intention to opt out of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty over alleged Russian violations.

"But it seems to me that it's very important for us and for them to find a way of meeting before then", said Ushakov.

"The current Ukrainian authorities have no interest in resolving the conflict, especially by peaceful means", he said.
