TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):

2:20 p.m.

President Donald Trump's ambassador to Moscow says he hopes Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin have "a detailed conversation about where we might be able to find some overlapping and shared interests."

The leaders are holding a summit Monday in Helsinki.

Ambassador Jon Huntsman says the two countries now have a "fraught bilateral relationship." The diplomat adds that "the collective blood pressure between the United States and Russia is off-the-charts high, so it's a good thing these presidents are getting together."

Huntsman tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that he expects that the two presidents will talk about "everything from meddling in the election to areas where we have some shared interests."

He says, "The objective here is to meet, to put our cards on the table."

11:56 a.m.

President Donald Trump says "nothing bad ... maybe some good" will come out of his summit Monday with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Finland.

Trump says in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations. I'm not going with high expectations."

The president also tells CBS News that he "hadn't thought" about asking Putin to extradite the dozen Russian military intelligence officers indicted this past week in Washington on charges related to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 U.S. election, but says that "certainly I'll be asking about it."

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can't compel Russia to hand over citizens, and a provision in Russia's constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries.
