Trump to meet Russian FM, two years after controversial encounter

President Donald Trump will Tuesday welcome Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Washington, the White House announced, two years after the US leader was accused of leaking classified information to him.

Trump will “discuss the state of the bilateral relationship” in a meeting both with Lavrov and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a senior Trump administration official said Monday.

The State Department on Sunday had confirmed Lavrov’s visit — his first to the US capital since the controversial Oval Office meeting with Trump in 2017.
