Theresa May: UK has confidence in special relationship with US

Theresa May: UK has confidence in special relationship with US

According to USA and diplomatic officials, Israeli intelligence was a source for some of the information about ISIS bomb-making capabilities that the President discussed with Russian diplomats.

"We can see that political schizophrenia is developing in the United States", Putin told reporters after talks with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the southern Russian city of Sochi".

Putin's offer set off alarm bells for many who've been watching the case, as what NPR's Lucian Kim referred to as an offer of a transcript was also translated as an offer of a "record" or "recording" - feeding speculation over Russia's own intelligence-gathering that centers on the U.S.

Putin also jokingly said he would "reprimand" Lavrov for not sharing the secrets with the president and Russian intelligence service.

The Russian president said he initially found debates about Russia's meddling in USA politics as "funny" but said Moscow is now "concerned because it's hard to imagine what the people who produce such nonsense can come up with next".

US President Donald Trump meets with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, left, next to Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 10, 2017.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster called Trump's discussion with Russian diplomats "wholly appropriate".

Putin's remarks came after The New York Times on Tuesday evening reported that Israel was the source of classified intelligence that Trump purportedly disclosed to the Russian officials.




"I can not comment specifically on that", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters during an off- camera news conference.

Mr Putin said: "What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans". "At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed".

"We continue to work together and we have confidence in that relationship between us and the United States, that it helps to keep us all safer", May said.

The White House refused to comment on the report.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman lauded security ties between the United States and his country, saying it would continue to be "unprecedented" in scope.

"The disclosure of highly classified information has the potential to jeopardize sources and to discourage our allies from sharing future information vital to our security", Sen.

The Washington Post broke the news Monday that Trump provided Russia's foreign minister and ambassador with highly classified information about potential terror threats from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
