At the time, as press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, on 27 January confirmed that a telephone conversation between Putin and trump place, trump adviser to Kellyann Conway lifted the veil of secrecy over what they will say to the leaders of the two superpowers. As it turned out – about the interests of their countries and on the joint fight against international terrorism. So she said to CBS. However, to answer the question, on whose initiative will be a communication adviser to trump flatly refused.
“I suppose, said Conway, is that first of all they will talk about the interests of their countries. And, most likely, will discuss the issues, the approaches to which they have most in common: for example, the possibility of joint struggle with radical Islamic terrorism, as well as a number of other problems.“
At the same time to answer the question of who was the initiator of the forthcoming phone call — Putin or trump Conway refused: “It is absolutely unimportant, she said.- Importantly, leaders must communicate with each other. Our goal is to improve the international situation in the world.”
As pointed out in this regard, Reuters, the upcoming “a phone call would be a significant step to ensure that, as hope in the Kremlin and in the White house, will be the basis for improving relations, completely spoiled by the previous US administration”. In addition, analysts of the Agency, “this conversation would weaken the position of those who followed the CIA accuses Russian intelligence services of meddling in the U.S. presidential election in favor of trump.”
In turn, Fox News elaborates on this topic possible discuss lifting sanctions on Russia. However, Russian experts are looking at the problem deeper.
For trump, the number one priority is working with Russia to crush banned in our country ISIS militarily, explained to “MK” head of the Center for foreign policy studies of the mechanism of the US Institute of USA and Canada studies Sergey Samoilov. – In the first place — on the territory of Iraq, while Russia will keep under control the situation in Syria. I think this will be the main topic of the telephone conversation, and, most of all, our President has already discussed with our security Council the General contours of establishing coordination with the US in this regard. Details then agree on the military. But General agreement on the main issues the presidents will discuss on the phone. And if then, as a result of interaction achieved within six months to a year ISIS will be defeated indeed, the credibility of trump’s dramatically go to the mountain, that he is now desperately needed. Of course, at the same time increase the authority of Vladimir Putin.
But the thing with the lifting of Russia sanctions is a difficult situation, the expert said.
– Of course, if we can agree on the main issue on the fight against ISIS, the US will be very discreet in relation to Ukraine — for example, the supply of weapons into this country. Perhaps to interest of Putin, trump will affect the conversation and the topic of sanctions: technically, he can cancel those that have been introduced Executive orders Obama. However, the U.S. Congress is very strong, and many of its members this step will not approve. So, most likely, trump’s advisers will not recommend him to do any sudden movements, because he did them contrary to the opinion of Congress, they will find something to win. But promise me that you will move in this direction, trump could. And perhaps it will do so.
