MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin held a telephone conversation with US President-elect Donald Trump on Monday evening and noted Russia’s readiness to build partner dialogue with the new US Administration, the Kremlin press service said.
"The Russian leader once again congratulated Trump on his victory at the presidential elections, wished him success in the implementation of his election program and noted readiness to build partner dialogue with the new administration on the principles of equality, mutual respect and non-interference into each other’s domestic affairs," the press service said.
Putin also spoke in favor of joint efforts toward normalization of Russian-US relations, the Kremlin press service added. "During the conversation, Putin and Trump not only fell in on the assessment of the extremely unsatisfactory state of the Russian-US relations but also spoke in favor of active joint efforts toward their normalization and bringing them into the track of constructive cooperation on a wide range of issues. The sides stressed the necessity of creating a reliable basis for bilateral ties by means of the development of their trade-and-economic component," the Kremlin said.
Putin and Trump agreed on the necessity to pool efforts to counter international terrorism and extremism, the Kremlin press service continued. "Putin and Trump shared the opinion on the necessity to pool efforts against major common enemy — international terrorism and extremism. In this context, they discussed issues of the settlement of the Syrian crisis," the Kremlin said.
"The sides agreed to continue telephone contacts with a possible personal meeting to be organized by representatives of both sides," the Kremlin said. "It was noted that next year will see the 210th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and the United States, which is to prompt the sides to get back to pragmatic, mutually beneficial cooperation in the interests of both countries, as well as of stability and security in the world," the press service said.
