Amid row over Russian Opposition leader Alexei Navalny's poisoning, US President Donald Trump said that his government hasn't received "any proof yet" of his alleged poisoning but added that he will take a look at it.

"I don't know exactly what happened. I think it's tragic, it's terrible, it shouldn't happen", the US president said, adding, "We haven't had any proof yet, but I will take a look at it." 

Germany had said it had  "unequivocal evidence" that Navalny, 44, was poisoned and has briefed NATO allies and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

"We have not seen it ourselves", Trump said on Germany's declaration, however, he added that based on what Germany is saying that seems to be the case, he added.

"I would be very angry if that's the case", Trump remarked.
