[WASHINGTON] US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to meet on Wednesday with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the Washington Post reported on Monday, citing three people close to Trump.

The meeting in New York comes after weeks of telephone conversations between Mr Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, and Mr Kissinger, who was a top adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, the Post said.

Last week, Mr Trump met with former Secretary of State James Baker, who told a congressional hearing on the same day as the meeting that Mr Trump's foreign policy proposals would make the world a less stable place.

Mr Trump has been criticised for suggesting the United States should rethink the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and that Japan and South Korea should consider getting nuclear weapons to defend themselves.
