Trump ribbed about Rus­sia room

The Citizen (KZN) - - World -

Washington – One of Moscow’s top diplo­mats joked to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Thurs­day af­ter tour­ing the White House that he was dis­ap­pointed not to have seen the “se­cret” Rus­sia room.

Vasily Neben­zya, the Rus­sian am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions, told Trump at a lunch for the mem­bers of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil.

“We saw the China room [which houses porce­lain] , but we didn’t see the Rus­sia room,” Neben­zya said, adding that he won­dered if such a room ex­isted but was “top se­cret”. The China Room houses a col­lec­tion of porce­lain.
