Putin says Trump meeting useful, deplores U.S. sanctions

SOCHI, Aug 22 (Reuters) - A summit with U.S. President Donald Trump was useful but U.S. sanctions against Moscow are counter-productive and pointless, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

Putin also said Europe needed the Moscow-led Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project and that Russia was the most suitable supplier of energy for Europe.

He was speaking at a news conference after talks with Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto in the Black Sea city of Sochi. (Reporting by Denis Pinchuk; writing by Polina Nikolskaya; editing by)
