Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Barack Obama will discuss the situation in Ukraine, Iraq and Syria “in the coming days,” a top aide said on Friday.
Speaking to reporters, Putin’s top foreign policy adviser, Yury Ushakov, did not provide further details about the upcoming phone call.
Separately, Putin will discuss the situation in Iraq with the conflict-torn country’s Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, Ushakov said, noting that the situation there “causes serious concern.”
Relations between Russia and the US have sunk to their lowest since the Cold War over the crisis in ex-Soviet Ukraine with Washington accusing the Kremlin of backing a separatist rebellion.
The two have also been at loggerheads over the war in Syria where Moscow has helped prop up the regime of strongman Bashar al-Assad.
