Putin Consults His Security Council Before Talking to Trump – ABC News

Putin Consults His Security Council Before Talking to Trump – ABC News — Ahead of the call, Putin chaired a meeting of his Security Council to discuss U.S.-Russian relations, the Kremlin said.

Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the two presidents are expected to “exchange views about main parameters of current bilateral relations.” They last spoke when Putin congratulated Trump shortly after his election victory.

Peskov wouldn’t elaborate on what specific issues could be discussed and wouldn’t say if the two leaders would use the call to agree on an in-person meeting.

The Kremlin has applauded Trump’s promises to mend ties with Moscow, which have been badly strained by the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. elections.
