‘Maybe they went to toilet together’: Russian FM suggests additional Trump-Putin G20 meetings
Did President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have additional undisclosed meetings at the G20 conference? Russia’s foreign minister says it’s a possibility.
During an interview with NBC News, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov would not deny that Trump and Putin had additional meetings other than the ones already disclosed, although he reacted dismissively to questions about such meetings.
“Well, maybe they went to toilet together,” Lavrov said when asked about other meetings the two world leaders had. “When you are brought by your parents to kindergarten, do you mix with people who are waiting in the same room to start going to a class?”
NBC’s Keir Simmons interjected and pointed out that a G20 meeting was significantly different from kindergarten.
“Well there is also a room where they get together before an event starts, they cannot arrive all at the same time on a bus,” Lavrov responded.
