HELSINKI, July 13. /TASS/. The main media center for journalists covering the meeting between the presidents of Russia and the United States will feature a lounge zone to watch the FIFA World Cup final, the Finnish Foreign Ministry has said.

"We have coined the center: Probably the Happiest Media Center in the World. It offers quality services, Finnish food specialities, a shipping container converted into a sauna and a cosy Helsinki Lounge furnished with Finnish design where you can watch the FIFA World Cup Final," the Finnish Foreign Ministry’s press service said in a statement.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup final between France and Croatia will take place on July 15.

The journalists will also have a chance to try both traditional Finnish cuisine and novelties, including trout from Aland, mashed potato prepared from Lapland potatoes, rolled oat flatbread, Karelian pastries, pulled oats and even cricket bread, which went into production in Finland late last year.

Instead of ordinary water bottles, journalists will be offered reusable bottles to be filled with "the world’s best tap water," the ministry said.

The two presidents are to meet in Helsinki on July 16. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier Putin and Trump would most likely discuss a range of highly complicated issues, including Syria.
