MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Contacts between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Elect Donald Trump before the latter’s inauguration are possible but so far Russia is working with the incumbent president, Barack Obama, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.
"As long as there is incumbent president in the United States, and he will be in office for two more months," he said.
"The situation is Syria, for instance, is developing so rapidly that no one can afford a two-month pause, so, work will be continued," Peskov stressed.
"I won’t make guesses about possible contacts between the Russian president and Trump before the inauguration [on January 20, 2017]. I know nothing about that but, of course, such contacts are not ruled out," the Kremlin spokesman said, adding that Putin has already sent a congratulatory message to Trump.
