Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Monday said that US President Donald Trump's criticism of Russia's Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline to Europe is an egregious example of unscrupulous competition and as such, it worries Moscow.

Speaking shortly before Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin sit down together for a summit in the Finnish capital, Peskov also said discussions between the two on Syria would be difficult because of the U.S. stance on Iran, Russia's ally and a major player in the Syrian conflict.

Russia's RIA news agency quoted.Peskov as saying he hoped the Helsinki talks would represent some kind of step away from the current crisis in U.S.-Russian relations.
