President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold their first face to face meeting in Moscow this week, the White House said.

The meeting is expected to take place in the Kremlin on Monday, but a senior administration official said details about the subject of the meeting would not be released at this time.

Trump is due to hold a meeting with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin in the Russian capital on Monday to discuss a wide range of issues, including fighting the Islamic State and Ukraine, the administration official told reporters on Monday.

The officials said the two leaders will discuss issues including the threat of terrorism, the fight against the Islamic state, and counteracting U.S. influence and cyberattacks in Russia.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

On Monday, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution demanding that Russia provide information about U.K. citizens suspected of involvement in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

The U.J. resolution passed unanimously.

The Russian Embassy in London said it would provide the UJ. with information about “the names of those who have joined extremist organizations and who have committed acts of terrorism in the United Kingdom.”

A spokesman for the Ujghtar Group, a Moscow-based company that has been working to acquire the U-2 spy plane, said the company will continue to work to “protect the national interests of our Russian colleagues.”

Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in U.A.E.’s hacking.
