According to the Kremlin both admitted relations were currently “unsatisfactory” and vowed to work together to improve them.

It was not made clear who had initiated the phone call.

In a statement the Kremlin said the two discussed combining efforts in the fight against terrorism and talked of meeting at a later date.

Relations between Washington and Moscow have soured in recent years, despite President Obama initially calling for a “reset”.
