President Donald Trump will have his first in-person meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, Russian state media is reporting. Such a meeting is hotly anticipated.

 Trump has had bilateral meetings with many heads of government so far, but not Putin. Trump's early administration has been dogged by lingering concerns regarding its relationship with Russia -- concerns only intensified following Tuesday's firing of FBI Director James Comey. 

 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced the upcoming meeting between Trump and Putin following his meetings on Wednesday in Washington, TASS news agency reports.
