The Russian President Vladimir Putin passed the US President Trump a note with proposals on reciprocal disarmament at the meeting, as Politico reported referring to the document Putin handed over to Trump.

“A page of proposed topics for negotiation, not previously made public, offers new insights into the substance of the July 16 dialogue that even Trump's top advisers have said they were not privy to at the time. Putin shared the contents of the document with Trump during their two-hour conversation, according to a U.S. government adviser who provided an English-language translation,” the news agency says.

Politico notes that the Russian side was the source of the leak.

“The White House declined to comment on the document Tuesday, aside from denying that Trump had received any actual paperwork,” Politico reads.

The document says that Putin offered Trump to prolong the agreement on Strategic offensive arms for five years. The agreement limits the amount of nuclear arsenal.
