I read the same story. I think this is the pertinent paragraph.

“The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

If you take away intelligence sources, methods, and military operations, there is nothing classified left. What you then have is what is common knowledge available through open sources, which is why for years now the TSA has required people to remove laptops from carry cases when going through airport security.

If I thought the media would cover a story like this honestly, I might pay more attention. Unfortunately, the media doesn't cover stories like this honestly. Even the Washington Post, which notes it's a nothing story, used a sensational headline.
