Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin and Don­ald Trump spoke on the phone and agreed on the need to nor­malise ties be­tween Washington and Moscow, the Krem­lin said. The Krem­lin also said that the two politi­cians agreed to “make pro­vi­sions for a per­sonal meet­ing”. The pres­i­den­tial tran­si­tion team in Washington said in a state­ment that it was Mr Putin who called Mr Trump on Novem­ber 14 evening to “of­fer his con­grat­u­la­tions on win­ning a his­toric elec­tion”. The Krem­lin said that Mr Putin and Mr Trump noted “the ex­tremely un­sat­is­fac­tory state of Rus­sian-US re­la­tions at present” and “de­clared the need for ac­tive joint work to nor­malise them”. Mr Trump’s team said the pair dis­cussed “the threats and chal­lenges” fac­ing both coun­tries as well as eco­nomic is­sues.
