President Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin behind closed doors in Helsinki Monday; discussing a wide range of issues including Syria, terrorism, and allegations of Kremlin-influenced meddling during the 2016 race for the White House.

According to Fox News, the two leaders huddled in Finland as the President predicted an “extraordinary relationship” with Putin.

“I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship,” Trump said, sitting next to Putin at the presidential palace in Helsinki. “Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.”

“The president met with Putin after sparring for the better part of the past week with traditional U.S. allies – first with NATO nations over their levels of defense spending, and later with British Prime Minister Theresa May over her ‘Brexit’ strategy, though he seemed to patch things up before leaving London,” writes Fox.

The meeting comes just days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced a new string of indictments against 12 Russian agents over their “hacking” of the 2016 race.
