WNU Editor: The U.S. pushed for this meeting. Also nothing has been prepared. That is why I expect nothing will come out of this face-to-face talk.

Bottom line. 

I see this as nothing more but a photo-op, and a hope from the White House that a “personal bond” between the two leaders will come out of this brief meeting.
