WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on Monday discussed with his Russian counterpart bilateral issues, those of regional and global concern and the prospects of a summit between the U.S. and Russian presidents, the White House said.
Sullivan and Nikolay Patrushev, the secretary of the Russian Security Council, agreed in their telephone call “to continue to stay in touch,” National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne said in a statement.
