Another interlocutor noted that due to the shift in Donald Trump's schedule, the talks were held with no press invited.

It was initially planned that Donald Trump would hold a series of bilateral meetings, namely with leaders of Ukraine, Georgia, Romania and Azerbaijan. Romania TV earlier today reported, referring to the information received by their correspondent in Brussels, that all meetings had been cancelled.

In particular, Trump did not meet with Romanian President Klaus Johannis. Their meeting had been scheduled for 11:00.

The NATO Summit is being held in Brussels July 11-12.
