Russia Says Trump, Putin Meeting Canceled due to American Domestic Politics

MOSCOW – A spokesperson for the Russian ministry of foreign affairs said on Friday the cancellation of a meeting between the presidents of the United States and Russia had nothing to do with an escalation of tension between Ukraine and Russia but was due to internal American politics.

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were due to meet at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on Dec. 1, but with tension intensifying between Russia and Ukraine after a naval clash in the Black Sea, Trump canceled the meeting Thursday.

“Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russia, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin. I look forward to a meaningful summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!” Trump said on Twitter.

However, Russia on Friday questioned whether the crisis in the Black Sea was the reason behind the cancellation of the meeting.

“Was Ukraine’s provocation in the Kerch Strait the true reason for the cancellation? We have heard the official explanation and taken note of it,” Maria Zakharova, director of Russian ministry of foreign affairs said at a press conference.

“But is it true? The true reason is rooted in the domestic political situation in the United States,” Zakharova added.
