President Trump and Vladimir Putin spoke for a second time at the G20 summit in a previously undisclosed discussion, the White House confirmed on Tuesday.
A senior White House official told CNN the talk lasted "Nearly an hour."
In a statement, the White House called the conversation "Brief" and added that Trump spoke with Putin through Russia's translator.
The discussion came after their scheduled, two-hour-long bilateral meeting earlier in the day.
The White House sought to downplay the significance of the discussion.
"It is not merely perfectly normal, it is part of a president's duties, to interact with world leaders," the White House statement said. Ref. CNN
