While the probe into Russian meddling in last year’s U.S. presidential race has already reached the White House, the relations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump have touched new heights.
Putin had a telephone conversation with Trump and thanked him for the sensitive information supplied by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that helped detain terrorists who plotted to set off explosions at Kazan Cathedral in St Petersburg and other public places in the city.
According to a Kremlin statement released Sunday, the information received from the CIA was enough to locate and detain the criminals.
This is the second such interaction between the two leaders in a week. Earlier on Thursday, Trump had called Putin and thanked him for praising Trump’s economic performance during an annual news conference.
The Russian President asked Trump on Sunday to convey his appreciation to the CIA director and the operatives of U.S. intelligence services who received the information.
According to the Kremlin statement, Putin assured Trump that in the event that Russian intelligence services receive information that concerns terrorist threats to the U.S. and its citizens, they will promptly pass it on to their U.S. colleagues via partner channels.
