President Trump held an unscheduled meeting with Henry Kissinger. The surprise meeting took place just after Trump’s meeting with the Russian foreign minister.
Trump stressed that the meeting revolved around Syria, “Everybody knows Dr. Kissinger and we’re right now talking about Russia and various other matters. We’re talking about Syria and I think that we’re going to do very well with respect to Syria. I think things are happening that are really, really, really positive. We’re going to stop the killing and the death. We had a very very good meeting with Mr. Lavrov and I thought it was very, very good. What we want to do is we want to see the killing, the horrible killing in Syria stop as soon as possible and everybody’s working toward that end. But, it’s an honor to have Henry Kissinger with us. He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. Thank you very much for being here.”
Kissinger was U.S. secretary of state and national security adviser under both Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.
He received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.
