Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in the Republic of Cyprus on Thursday for a working visit, which will last until May 20. There Lavrov is expected to hold talks with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulidis. On the sidelines of the session, Lavrov met with Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland.
At that point Lavrov took another pot shot at the US, a continuation of the trolling which started yesterday when Putin offered to provide US Congress with the transcript of the Lavrov-Trump meeting, which earlier this week led to media turmoil after the WaPo reported that Trump disclosed confidential information to the Russian foreign minister.
This was the exchange in question, which the Russian ministry of foreign affairs was all to eager to tweet earlier today.
Thorbjorn Jagland: These pictures (protocol photoshoot) won’t cause any problems for you?
Sergey Lavrov: It depends on what kind of secrets you pass on to me
[Laughter in the room]
