World International Affairs Moscow has said that President Donald Trump's cancelation of a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin would give the latter more time to attend other talks with world leaders.

Lavrov did not mention Mr. Trump by name, but the attack was the most blistering in years.

The most intriguing event may be President Trump's chairing of a Council meeting -- his first time wielding the U.N. gavel. "Like it or not, unless the Pope or Kim Jong Un show up, all eyes are on Trump," one Security Council diplomat, who wished to remain anonymous, told CBS News. But his seat at the helm and all the global attention aside, the odds of Mr. Trump … [Read more...] about “All eyes” on Trump: U.N. to meet amid tension with U.S.
