US President Donald Trump spoke over phone with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his recent re-election and the two leaders discussed the state of bilateral ties and the possibility of a meeting in the near future. 

The White House said today, Mr Trump congratulated President Putin on his March 18 re-election and emphasised the importance of denuclearising the Korean Peninsula. 

It said, the two leaders discussed the state of bilateral relations and resolved to continue dialogue about mutual national security priorities and challenges. 

The White House said, both leaders confirmed the need for the United States and Russia to continue their shared efforts on strategic stability. It said, they also discussed Ukraine, Syria, North Korea and various other issues.
Later, talking to reporters at the White House, Mr Trump said that he had a very good phone call with the Russian President.
