Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, attended a meeting with news agencies’ CEOs, organized by TASS and held on Thursday morning.
Putin stated that his recent conversation with the US President Donald Trump over the phone was very productive, taking into consideration that both leaders share the same position over the issue of strategic arms control.
“Anyhow, my latest conversation with President Trump inspires certain optimism, I would say, because Donald told me he was concerned over that as well. He said he understood how much money the United States and other world nations spend on arms and this money could be used for other purposes. I share this point of view,” Putin said.
