US, Russia agree to increase trust between them

QAMISHLI, Syria (North Press) – The Secretary of the Russian National Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, and the US National Security Adviser Jacob Jeremiah Sullivan, made a phone call yesterday, where they agreed to increase trust between their countries.

The phone call was held in preparation for forthcoming contacts between the two countries at the highest level, the Russian Security Council said.

According to the statement, during the conversation, Nikolai Patrushev and Jake Sullivan agreed to join efforts to improve the atmosphere of Russian-US relations and increase trust between the two countries.

On June 16, US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin held their first summit in Geneva, during which they agreed to return each country’s ambassador to their post and assigning experts to focus on the growing problem of cyberattacks. 

Following the summit, the Biden administration stressed the need to cooperate with Russia in the areas where this is possible, especially strategic stability, cyber security, and resolving some regional crises.

“There is a glimmer of hope to resolve outstanding issues and build mutual trust with the United States,” Putin said commenting on the summit.
