President Trump today spoke with Vladimir Putin for more than one hour about Syria, North Korea, and Ukraine.

President Trump told reporters before the departure of Marine One that he had ” a great call with President Putin.”  The President said that they were talking “very strongly about bringing peace to Syria.  We’re talking about very strongly about North Korea and Ukraine.”

According to the White House, the two presidents affirmed their support for the Joint Statement of the United States and the Russian Federation, issued at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit on November 11.

Both presidents also stressed the importance of implementing U.N. Security Council Resolution 2254. The Resolution was adopted in 2015 in  an effort  to seek the basis for a “Syrian-led, Syrian-owned political transition to end the conflict.”

White House confirmed that Trump and Putin talked about an  “importance of fighting terrorism together” in the region of the  Middle East and Central Asia and “agreed to explore ways to further cooperate in the fight against ISIS, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and other terrorist organizations.”

An implementation of a lasting peace in Ukraine was also discussed as well as “the need to continue international pressure on North Korea to halt its nuclear weapon and missile programs”.

On Monday, November 20, during a  Cabinet meeting at the White House, Trump announced that the United States is re-designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, nine years after it was removed from the list by former President George W. Bush in 2008.
