In holiday message, Putin says Russia 'open to dialogue' with US

Kirill Kukhmar  TASS

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent new year messages to President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said relations between the two countries were developing in a constructive and dynamic manner.

Trump and Putin also failed to hold a full-fledged meeting in Paris on the sidelines of the centenary commemoration of the Armistice. Washington's announcement of a pull out from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty did not receive a warm welcome from Moscow.

Moscow hosted talks with Turkey on Saturday in which the two countries agreed to coordinate actions in northern Syria after Trump's announcement that he was withdrawing us forces from the country.

The recipients included Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom Putin has backed throughout a civil war that started in 2011.

In his message to President Erdogan, Putin emphasized on the promising direction of relations between Moscow and Ankara.

The events are believed to be carefully stage-managed to appeal to the president's huge number of supporters in Russian Federation.

Referring to the October summit, which was held in New Delhi, Putin noted that the agreements reached between India and Russian Federation will contribute to strengthening the privileged strategic partnership between the two countries.

In his message to May, Putin wished the British people "wellbeing and prosperity" in 2019. The decision from Trump sparked outrage from several high-ranking military officers, as well as the resignation of Trump's Secretary of Defense, James Mattis.

"Vladimir Putin stressed that the [Russia - United States] relations are the most important factor for providing strategic stability and global security", a Kremlin statement said on Sunday. The Russian president also sent notes in 2017, telling Trump that the two countries needed to come together to promote "pragmatic cooperation designed for the long term".
