Russian President Vladimir Putin said Saturday that Russia was ready to improve relations with the US, including through personal meetings.
“We can differently assess decisions that are taken by the United States, including by the US president. They can be criticized. Indeed, there is much that should be criticized. But there is one thing that I have already mentioned — Trump fulfills his promises given during the election campaign… One of the promises is to improve the Russian-US relations,” Putin said in an interview, released on the website of the Vesti media outlet on Saturday.
“I hope (an improvement in ties) also takes place. At any rate, we are ready for it. I think the ball is in the Americans’ court,” Putin was quoted as saying by Interfax.
