Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump was productive both in human and political terms.
According to Lavrov, the conversation exercised mutual respect and willingness of the two leaders to work together to support national interests, TASS reports.
"They [Putin and Trump] agreed to continue the work on both the expert level and within the framework of their further contacts that will surely take place, although their timing and details are yet to be agreed upon," said Lavrov.
The work on the expert level will be conducted on a regular basis as soon as Trump's office is finally formed. After that, representatives of the two countries will see to which extent their "common interests" can be turned into "joint mechanisms to solve problems," the Russian Foreign Minister added.
Spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that the two presidents emphasized mutual respect as a very important principle in bilateral relations.

Russia is NOT going to just go away.We need to develop a good working relationship with them.
.... than open your mand remove all doubt
A partnership would be good.
Eetle is the most high profile and will along shortly to spam this thread.
But there are many others.
I’m more interested in the pre-election call between Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
The Russians will need help fending off the Chinese.
It’s just diplomacy. You get a lot more done with respect than you do with hurling insults.
Even Obama is about to find that out.
There will be plenty of time to disagree if we need to, but why not start out fresh and hope for the best.
I see this as a very good sign.
In time, if things go South, they go South. That’s life.
Yes, I agree.
BTW: Obama did his damnedest to start Trump out fighting Putin and calling him names.
Trump just ignored him. LOL
I am for any relationship that will wipe ISIS from the face of the earth.
It’s almost as much fun seeing the neocons seething as it is the dims.
“I am for any relationship that will wipe ISIS from the face of the earth.”
This is certainly one are where we can work together.
I love this. The Russians are our Christian ally. They are are small but important nation. ( only 140 million) but we need them by our side against the Chinese— I assure you and of course Isis ( SUNNI) which we will soon annihilate over the objections of the democrats. HA!!
Oh I agree.
In addition, I think the NeverTrumpers are fit to be tied right now. No way they saw this coming. It’s 100% dead opposite of what they were predicting last year.
Like a joint expeditionary force to crush ISIS!!!
This conversation certainly will up set Lindy Graham of SC..
He hates Mr. Putin...I believe he fears what Mr. Putin just might say about him to President Trump...
Graham and McCain both need to resign..they have over stayed their usefulness.
TERM LIMITS NEXT...ALONG WITH VOTER ID...
I don't know. Seems there are more of you Putin butt kissers around these days than normal people. Most of the normal people seemed to have left months ago.
