Trump-Vladimir Putin speak for 'more than 1 hour' on terrorism, North Korea, Syria

The pair previously met during Trump's trip to Asia earlier in the month.

Trump and Putin had met for an informal meeting on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC) in Vietnam on Nov. 11, as Trump was on a five-country tour of Asia.

During the Asia trip, Trump said Putin told him Russia did not meddle in the election, and that he "believes that [Putin] believes that." But Trump added that he trusted the U.S. intelligence community, which determined in January that Russia, guided by Putin, took efforts to interfere in the election.
