Trump Reaches Out to Putin

President Trump spent his Saturday making phone calls to foreign leaders from around the world, arranging a visit from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, and accepting an invitation to attend the G20 Summit from Angela Merkel. But those phone calls pale in comparison to a near hour long chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Reuters reported,

U.S.-Russia relations had hit a post-Cold War low under Barack Obama and Trump has made clear he wants a rapprochement with Moscow if he can get along with Putin.

“Both sides demonstrated a mood for active, joint work on stabilizing and developing Russian-American cooperation,” the Kremlin said in a statement, saying Putin and Trump had agreed to work on finding a possible time and place for a meeting.

 

There was no mention in the statement that the possibility of Trump easing sanctions on Moscow imposed over the Ukraine conflict had been mentioned, a subject widely expected to be raised.

The two apparently talked about rebuilding American-Russian relations, and working together to fight ISIS and stabilize Syria and the middle east.
