U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said there should be no reset in Washington`s relations with Moscow, The New York Times reports.
The U.S. president-elect said that he had talked with President Vladimir Putin of Russia since winning the election, but he did not elaborate, according to The New York Times.
He said it would be ”nice” if he and Mr. Putin could get along, but he rejected the idea that any warming of relations would be called a ”reset,” noting the criticism that Mrs. Clinton received after her attempts at bettering relations between the countries failed.
”I wouldn`t use that term after what happened,” Mr. Trump said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, U.S. President Barack Obama believes that the president-elect, Donald Trump, whose inauguration is scheduled for January 20, 2017, will protect the values of democracy and international norms, and stand up to Russia if necessary, according to his speech during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin November 15.
