Kremlin Spokesman Peskov Says Trump Calling for Disarmament Is ‘Commendable’
April 6, 2019—Commenting on President Donald Trump’s April 4 remarks to the press in the White House that it would be better for the U.S., China, and Russia to invest in peace than in nuclear weapons, Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed the Kremlin’s acknowledgment that
“any call for disarmament is commendable and worth considering.... The important thing is that, rather than be limited to words, this call should be translated into specific initiatives and suggestions that would be handed over to partners through official channels.”
President Trump was speaking to media before a bilateral meeting with China’s Vice Premier Liu He.
Peskov said further that the Kremlin had not received any suggestions of that kind from the United States, according to TASS.
