WASHINGTON, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- When asked about his opinion of U.S. President Donald Trump during the BRICS Summit in China, Russian President Vladimir Putin shed the question by saying Trump "is not my bride," according to U.S. media reports Tuesday.
"I am not his bride, nor his groom," Putin said when asked whether he was disappointed with Trump Tuesday on the sidelines of the 2017 summit held in the southeastern Chinese coastal city of Xiamen.
Calling it a "naive" question, Putin said he and Trump are both working for their governments and only engaged in state activities.
Regarding the two countries recently closing diplomatic properties belonging to the other, Putin said Russia's Foreign Ministry will file a lawsuit against the United State, the Washington Post reported.
When asked to comment on the U.S. investigations into alleged ties between Trump's campaign team and Russian intelligence, Putin said, it's America's internal political issue and not Russia's business.
