    Media reports about a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President-elect Donald Trump in Iceland's capital are "nonsense," aiming to undermine Trump's presidency, a representative of the Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, British newsreader The Sunday Times newspaper reported that Trump plans to hold a summit with Putin in Reykjavik, Iceland, which will also be the first Trump's foreign trip after assuming the office. A representative of Trump refuted the media report.

    "This is nonsense, a UK attempt to undermine Donald Trump's presidency, they are unlikely to stop such attempts," the embassy's representative told RIA Novosti.
