Russia and the United States agree that the terrorist threat must be neutralized and that the two states should cooperate on the issue, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a Fox News interview on Monday.

When asked how Russian-US relations changed after the summit in Helsinki, Putin replied: “Primarily, I think, we should be grateful to our staff and our aides, who spent several last months working with one another, and not just in the preparations of this summit.”

“I’m referring to the effort of our agencies across the board, who worked in sensitive areas both for Russia and the United States. Primarily I refer to counterterrorism efforts. Today, talking with President Trump, we agreed that terrorism is a greater threat than it seems at first,” the Russian leader said.

“Because, God forbid, if something happens, if terrorists … get in their hands the weapons of mass destruction, it may have the devastating ramifications,” he continued. “Our military, our special agencies do establish cooperation in this particularly important area.”

Putin cited cooperation in Syria as an example of practical cooperation.
“Although there is some understanding missing to some extent, especially in the terms of broader picture, but this cooperation is going on between our military forces, our special services,” he said.
Monday’s meeting in Helsinki was the first full-format Putin-Trump talks. Before that, they met twice – in July and November 2017 – on the sidelines of major international forums.

Problem is according to Putin terrorists are ISIS and their proxies. According to Trump terrorists are Iran and their proxies. We will see how all this common fight against terrorists will end up…

Except that ISIS was created by Iran, so they won’t have many problems to agree…
What is not an Iranian proxy is Qatar/Turkey/Muslim Brotherhood puppet…

Don’t you ever tire of your lying BS? For Iran to have created ISIS, they would have to be under the control of the CIA/NATO, their true creators. Since you continue with your manure spreading, how do you account for the fact that Israel aids and abets with weapons, strikes and medical assistance ISIS and even claims they are preferable to Assad…yet they continually claim to attack Iranian assets, who YOU claim created ISIS, Israels pet terrorists. Your BS is so transparent, not to mention completely ridiculous, that you also continually contradict yourself and common sense. NOBODY believes your version… Read more »

gzman501, don’t waste your time with Daeshbag explaining him who exactly created ISIS. I already explained to him the whole process how ISIS was created by CIA (backed with real facts). However, he has never replied to me. He will not reply to your post here either. Every person with a working brain watching the history of US-invasions since 2001 can figure out how ISIS was created. Obviously, Daeshbag is either a troll here or just brainwashed in US perfection…

Ah, but Putin knows the truth of it…ISIS and the other terrorists are proxies of the west and the corrupt dictatorships in the ME. Trump also knows this to be true, but cannot say any such thing as it is not part of his act. These ‘talks’ are nothing more than the 2 sides feeling each other out for weaknesses and to show that they know what is really going on. For Trump, it’s a fact finding mission…to see just what Putin knows and how he is going to deal with their conniving. He tells Putin what he sees as… Read more »

For Russia “to eliminate terrorists” has full meaning. However, for USA “to eliminate terrorists” it is impossible to know the meaning.

The Creator of this Holly world (you call it Allah, I call it God) would never be in agreement a human bean to kill another human bean. You are sick inside your heart and you have created the same sick illusion mirrored from your sick heart!

This world has no so-called “creator”, nevertheless, our fiend Abu Bakr is totally sick and has obviously no idea about what actually happened in Vietnam or Afghanistan. Allah can’t never fail to his promises since something that doesn’t exists can’t promise. How funny his Sunni terrorists with their black banner were created by Iran on the sole purpose of having them destroyed by the Yanks and Russians then fill the power-vacuum in weakened Iraq and Syria just like they’ve done in Lebanon! All these jihadists are useful idiots and cannon fodder in the evil hands of imperialists in Doha, Ankara,… Read more »

These sick souls do not even believe their own lies. They only sell their souls for a few sheckles, for that is all it’s worth. For that, they will say anything…as long as they get their paycheck.
