    Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President-elect Donald Trump spoke of establishing contacts and a possible meeting, but the date for negotiations was not discussed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Monday, Putin told Trump in a phone conversation that Russia was ready to maintain constructive dialogue with the new US administration on the basis of equal rights and mutual respect.

    The politicians agreed that Russian-US relations were in an unsatisfactory state and vowed to work on normalizing them, according to the Kremlin press service.

    "There is no particular understanding or agreement or estimate on this issue. Indeed, during the talks they spoke of the intention to restart contacts, hold a meeting, but there was no mention of when this will happen," Peskov told reporters.
