US President Donald Trump said he would not participate in the online summit on Iran, which was previously proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. He stated this during a press conference on Wednesday.
According to Trump, Iran is interested in seeing it lose the presidential election.
"Probably not. I think we need to wait until the elections. Iran really wants me to lose," Trump said, while allowing the summit to be held after the elections in November.
Recall that on August 14, Vladimir Putin proposed to hold an online meeting of the "five" permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia, China, USA, France and Great Britain), as well as Germany and Iran.
At the meeting, he called for discussing an action plan on the Iranian nuclear program and agreeing on the formation of security and confidence-building mechanisms in the Persian Gulf zone.
As we reported before, Robert, the younger brother of US President Donald Trump, passed away at the age of 71. U.S. leader announced this himself.
