Russian FM mocks US media over intelligence-sharing reports

President Donald Trump

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House where they discussed a wide range of issues with Syria topping the agenda.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed on Thursday U.S. press reports that President Donald Trump passed classified information to him when they met recently in the White House.

Lavrov arrived in Nicosia on Thursday to attend a foreign ministers' meeting of the Council of Europe at the end of Cyprus's presidency this month.

"A former US intelligence official has told CBS News that "inappropriate" information" was discussed by Mr. Trump during that Oval Office meeting with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak last week.

He joked that some USA media were acting like communist newspapers during the Soviet Union and not offering real news. "It's true, I get the impression, that many US media are working in this vein".

A Swedish prosecutor issues a European arrest warrant for Assange on sexual assault allegations involving two Swedish women. For three years, police were stationed 24/7 outside the embassy, costing the British taxpayer over £12.6 million.


"As far as I can recall, maybe one month or two months earlier, the Trump administration had a laptop ban from seven Middle Eastern countries, and that it was connected directly to a terrorist threat", Lavrov told reporters in Nicosia, speaking through an interpreter. They are also the names of two long-running newspapers in Russian Federation.

Lavrov was in Cyprus on Thursday for talks with his Cypriot counterpart.

"Look at the way I've been treated especially by the media", the Republican billionaire said. The intelligence was reportedly from "a US partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement" and not authorized to be shared with Russia, US allies or even within much of the US government. Now, Washington Post Intelligence and Terrorism Reporter Greg Miller sparks buzz with a story claiming that the president leaked sensitive information in that meeting.

Israeli intelligence officials say this amounts to their "worst fears confirmed", that the United States, with whom they have an exclusive intelligence-sharing deal, are passing that information along without Israel's prior knowledge.
