Trump Responds to Question on UNSC Permanent Five Summit at Press Conference

March 2, 2020 (EIRNS)—At a Feb. 29 White House press conference, President Donald Trump was asked: “It has been reported yesterday that you are willing, at this point, to meet with leaders of Russia, China, the U.K., and France, to discuss arms control issues among other things.”

Trump responded:

“They all want to discuss arms control, and that’s a wise thing.  We’re spending now over $20 billion on nuclear and on the super-speed missiles and many other things. And they have come to me, and they all want to now discuss arms control, and that includes China and that includes Russia. And I think it’s very smart of them to want to do it, and I think it’s very smart of us to want to do it. And we will be discussing that in New York.”
