Cyprus' foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides, right, and Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov talk to the media during a press conference after their meeting at the foreign ministry in capital Nicosia, Cyprus, on Thursday, May.

Assange 'evaded all attempts' to extradite him - Swedish prosecutor
Assange, 45, took refuge in the embassy in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over the rape allegation, which he denies. Police kept up round-the-clock guard outside the embassy until past year , when the operation was scaled back.
Without directly confirming the details of their conversation, Lavrov told reporters in Cyprus on Thursday that he didn't understand what the "secret" was since the USA introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some Middle Eastern countries two months ago.
Lavrov recalled a joke of Soviet times when there were two main newspapers - Pravda, meaning Truth, and Izvestiya, meaning The News. "It's true, I get the impression, that many USA media are working in this vein". But Trump told the Russians those things, the USA officials said, as he described intelligence that led to the new rules banning electronic devices in the cabins of certain flights.
Known so far is that Trump shared with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador a plot being hatched by ISIS, but NBC reveals more specifics about the plot as well as details the intelligence community (IC) is asking it and other media outlets not to reveal. As such, he said, there was nothing about the story for the Kremlin to confirm or deny.
Tottenham Hotspur blow Leicester City away
Harry Kane (four goals) and Heung-Min Son (brace) scored Spurs' goals while Benjamin Chilwell grabbed Leicester's goal. The latter then put the ball in the back of the net after some good build up but it was ruled out for offside.
At the press conference, Lavrov also said Russian Federation would like to improve its relations with the European Union (EU).
Trump sent out the tweets after a Washington Post story accused him of revealing highly classified information to Russian officials during last week's Oval Office meeting.
The story - which cited unverifiable sources and unnamed current and former officials - claimed that Trump disclosed "code-word information" related to IS during the May 10 meeting.
