The telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Barack Obama held on July 15 demonstrates readiness to settle disputes through dialogue, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov has said.
"The conversation was constructive. Indeed, such conversations do not remove disputable issues and cannot do so, nevertheless, they are at least rather useful from the point of view of demonstration of the preparedness to resolve disputable issues by way of dialogue, which is definitely satisfying," Peskov told reporters on July 16.
While answering a question as to whether the two recent telephone conversations between the presidents of Russia and the United States held over the past week could be seen as a thaw in Moscow-Washington relations, Peskov said, "So far we can rather positively assess the very fact of dialogue."
The Kremlin press service said earlier that Putin and Obama had discussed and praised results of the Vienna negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program.
