White House furious after being trolled with Russia Oval Office photos

"President Donald J. Trump met today with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov of Russian Federation, following on the visit of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Moscow last month", it read.

US intelligence agencies concluded in a January report that Putin had ordered an effort to disrupt the 2016 election that included hacking into Democratic Party emails and leaking them, with the aim of helping Trump.

The president said Mr Flynn misled senior administration officials about his pre-inauguration talks with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador in Washington.

Donald Trump's administration was left red-faced Thursday after the Kremlin surprised them by releasing pictures of a closed-door meeting between the United States president and Russia's top diplomat. The last time Lavrov visited the American capital was before Russian Federation annexed Crimea from Ukraine and intervened militarily in Syria to help President Bashar Assad - actions that fueled U.S.

Trump's talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov would occur after the Russian's meetings earlier in the day with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Russian Federation denies the allegations.

Lavrov said his focus was primarily on the Syrian safe zones, a plan which President Trump had previously been in favor of, but which since Russian Federation backed them they are now extremely evasive about their posiition on. "There is not a single fact, there is no compelling evidence given to anyone regarding Russia's intervention and that's it".

BCCI likely to pick Indian team for Champions Trophy on May 8
With the new revenue model getting the nod, BCCI will now have to do with what they have in the eight-year cycle. The letter also directed the BCCI not to pull out of the Champions Trophy without their (CoA) consent.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made the announcement after meeting with Trump in Washington Wednesday, according to Tass.

Lavrov said the allegations didn't arise during his meeting with Trump. Syrian rebels have ruled out respecting the safe zones, though Russia, Turkey, Iran, and the Syrian government will respect them. "I think that it is even degrading for the American people to hear that Russian Federation is managing the domestic policy of the U.S. How can a great nation, a great country, succumb to this and think in such categories?"

"What we want to do is we want to see the killing, the terrible killing in Syria, stop as soon as possible and everybody's working toward that end", Trump said in his conversation with reporters in the Oval Office.

Russian Federation wants the elimination of those and election-related sanctions imposed by Obama.

Lavrov said that despite difficulties "our countries can and should contribute jointly to the settlement of the most urgent issues in global affairs".
