Trump and Putin want 'coordination' against IS

Earlier we reported how Putin said he was ready to meet Trump but preparations for the possible meeting may take months, not weeks, says the Kremlin.

The administration of US President Donald Trump has prepared documents to lift sanctions against Russian Federation, a researcher at Atlantic Council analytical center Fabrice Pothier tweeted.

On Friday, speaking at a joint briefing with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump said he hoped he would have a "fantastic relationship" with Russia's president, but understands that might not happen.

When asked if removing sanctions would be discussed during the call, Conway - who ran Trump's successful election campaign - said: "All of that is under consideration".

But if legit, they show the displeasure many government employees across a wide range of agencies about Trump's censorship . The account has amassed 345,000 followers and includes tweets like: "Science deniers are risky ".

OH senator Rob Portman joined McCain in urging Trump not to lift the sanctions and advised codifying them into law.

Many Democrats, most notably Georgia U.S. Rep. John Lewis, believe Trump isn't a legitimate president, elected only because of Russia's hacking of Hillary Clinton campaign officials' email accounts. Trump's critics have questioned the wisdom of his calls for better ties with Putin, especially in light of the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation hacked e-mails of the Democratic National Committee in a bid to swing the November election in Trump's favor.

"We know that Trump considers himself a master in the (art of the) deal, but Vladimir Putin also knows how to negotiate, and does it always in the interest of Russia", Lavrov added. "We should engage with Russian Federation from a position of strength and build the relationship, systems, and processes that make cooperation more likely than conflict".

[G] rievances include Russia's annexation of Crimea and military intervention in eastern Ukraine and Syria, the sanctions the USA imposed in response, and the exchange of accusations of hacking following apparent Russian attempts to swing the U.S. election in Mr Trump's favour.

In a separate interview on Fox & Friends, Conway said the call could include discussions on removing Russian sanctions.

They last spoke when Mr Putin congratulated Mr Trump shortly after his election victory last November. "As far as sanctions, it's very early to be talking about that". Other major countries in Europe have also cautioned Trump against lifting the sanctions unless Kremlin ends its conflicts with Ukraine. Trump raised further questions when he repeatedly dismissed the conclusions of the C.I.A. and other federal agencies that Russian Federation sought to tip the balance of the 2016 election in his favor by launching two major cyber-attacks on Democrats.

If this is all part of President Trump's vow to make American foreign policy less predictable it seems to be working.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said US and Russian interests "obviously coincide" and that Moscow was ready to consider concrete proposals from the Trump administration. "Well, I start off trusting both-but let's see how long that lasts", he said.

Putin has dismissed the reports as a fabrication to "undermine the legitimacy" of Trump's presidency.
