Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed US media reports that US President Donald Trump allegedly passed secret information on Daesh terrorist organization to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Washington Post on May 15 claimed that Trump "revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week", saying with reference to current and former US officials that the alleged disclosures "jeopardized a critical source of intelligence" on Daesh.

"This is not a topic for us, it's just another nonsense. We do not want to have anything to do with this nonsense at all. This is complete nonsense, there is no topic here either for confirmation or for refutation," Peskov said.
