Kremlin on Trump-Putin meeting: withdrawal of ban on adoption of Russian children wasn’t mentioned
Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump have discussed the adoption of Russian children during supper at the G20 summit in Hamburg, but possible withdrawal of the existing ban was not mentioned, Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
"I confirm that this issue has been discussed. Nothing to add," TASS cited the Kremlin’s spokesman as saying. "No, it wasn’t mentioned," Peskov said, answering a question on whether the law, that prohibits the adoption of Russian children by US citizens, could be cancelled.
Peskov reconfirmed that it was not an alleged second, undisclosed meeting between the Russian and US presidents, but just a talk between the leaders at a dinner for the delegations’ heads.
Earlier Trump said in an interview with the New York Times that he had discussed the adoption of Russian children by US citizens with his Russian counterpart at a dinner organized at the G20 summit in Hamburg.
