US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are scheduled to speak on the phone Saturday in their first conversation since Trump took office, an administration official told CNN.
Trump has vowed to have better relations with Russia than his predecessor.
This month, he suggested he would lift sanctions imposed by the Obama administration if the Kremlin helps the US battle terrorists.
In his new year’s message, Putin congratulated Trump and expressed their two countries would be able to “take their interaction in the international arena to a whole new level.”
During the Obama administration the relations with Russia hit it’s lowest since Cold War times.
