Kremlin said that recent contact between the two presidents cannot be interpreted as a sign of a thaw in the relations between the two powers.
“Can this situation be projected onto the general background of bilateral Russian-US relations? Such a conclusion is improbable today,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters when asked whether he thought the recent contacts between the two presidents could inspire hope for the improvement in bilateral relations, TASS reported.
According to the Kremlin spokesman, the Russian and US leaders “have been having quite constructive contacts for a long time.”
“At this point, an absolute, so to say, the convergence of the two countries’ interests to pool efforts to stabilize the oil markets, obviously, dictates the necessity of more frequent contacts,” he explained.
“The presidents have long, frank, constructive and efficient contacts,” Peskov said. “And you see the result – the (OPEC+ oil production cuts) deal has been finalized and formalized.”
