Peskov said his boss, President Putin, had found President Trump pragmatic, but also expressed some concern.

"We don't have a proper understanding of perspectives of future of our bilateral relationship," Peskov said.

"We certainly would expect our contacts to be more frequent, more in-depth, in order to sit and then talk to each other to try to understand, because we had quite a significant pause in our bilateral relations," he said.

On Jan. 28, a phone conversation between Russian President Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump took place.

Pragmatic Merkel takes on the unpredictable Trump (Financial Times)

Pragmatic Merkel takes on the unpredictable Trump (Financial Times) 

As the leaders of US and Germany meet, questions remain over how they can find common ground

As a young woman growing up in Communist East Germany, Angela Merkel dreamt of visiting the US “where”, as she later said, “the air is full of the spirit of freedom and independence”. When the Berlin Wall came down, she finally achieved her ambition by taking a holiday in California. She has returned many times since but when the German chancellor visits Washington on Tuesday to meet Donald Trump it is in profoundly different circumstances.

The US risks losing its international lustre under a president elected on nationalist, isolationist and protectionist promises. At the same time Ms Merkel is being cast, to her great discomfort, as a liberal beacon. “Nobody now is the leader of the free world,” says Ian Bremmer, head of Eurasia, the political risk group. “But if there were one, it would be Merkel.”

The White House summit, which brings together the world’s most powerful man and its most influential woman, will be watched for far more than its impact on bilateral relations amid concern over the future of the transatlantic alliance, Nato, free trade and global economic co-operation.

In a warning to Washington, Ms Merkel has pledged to work with Mr Trump only on the basis of common democratic values. The president, for his part, has repeatedly challenged her approach by pledging to put “America first” and accused the chancellor in his election campaign of “ruining Germany” via an open-door immigration policy which he dubbed a “catastrophic mistake”.

But on the eve of the summit there was some thawing of relations. Mr Trump’s officials said the president wanted to ask Ms Merkel for her views on Ukraine and how to handle Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president, while Berlin indicated that the cautious Ms Merkel will avoid confrontation in Washington and instead seek common ground.

“She is a pragmatist,” says a government adviser. “She will approach Trump in a pragmatic way.”

‘A mass of testosterone’

Ms Merkel, the EU’s dominant leader, arrives in Washington with a bag of troubles — Russian belligerence, Islamist terrorism, Middle East instability, migration and populist-inspired divisions in Europe....................
