Trump, Putin talk North Korea in phone call

  • Donald Trump

Mr Trump told reporters he telephoned Mr Putin on Thursday and the pair discussed several issues.

During his remarks in Moscow, Mr Putin said that growing markets have demonstrated investors' confidence in Mr Trump's economic course.

US President Donald Trump says Washington hopes to receive more help from Russian President Vladimir Putin in efforts to convince North Korea to abandon its missile and nuclear weapons program.

Trump may have anticipated Kim could fire the Juche Bird and made the call to the Russian supremo to prevent the destructive weapon from being fired.

Mr Tillerson also called on China and Russian Federation to increase pressure on North Korea by going beyond the implementation of United Nations sanctions.

Look at how the markets have grown.




"We very much hope that the USA will be able to help resolve the crisis on the Korean peninsula", Nebenzya said, directly addressing Tillerson. "This means they trust what President Trump is doing in this area. With all due respect to [Trump's] opponents, these are objective facts".

While Trump keeps taking credit for upswings on the stock market, economists have pointed out that the US economy has been on a steady upwards trajectory for years and - since Trump has yet to pass any major economic legislation - the growth can most likely be traced to Obama-era policies. "We would love to have [Putin's] help on North Korea", said Trump.

Trump also used the call to thank Putin for "acknowledging America's strong economic performance in his annual press conference".

Like Putin, Trump has vehemently denied all allegations of collusion, oftentimes characterizing them as "fake news".

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said this November that McFaul had been barred from entering Russia for intentionally "harming the bilateral relations" between the two nations.
