US, Russia to tighten relations and Syria coordination

Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump agreed to try to rebuild bilateral ties and cooperate in Syria during their phone conversation on Saturday.

The presidents spoke in favor of setting up genuine coordination between Russian and American actions with the aim of destroying the Islamic State and other terrorist groups in Syria, the Kremlin said. The two leaders underlined the importance of restoring mutually-beneficial trade and economic ties. Trump and Putin agreed to establish "partner-like cooperation" when it came to other global issues such as Ukraine, Iran's nuclear program, tensions on the Korean peninsula, and the Israeli-Arab conflict.
