Russian President Vladimir Putin and British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke by phone on Tuesday and agreed to meet “in the near future” to try to improve poor relations between Moscow and London, the Kremlin said in a statement.
Both leaders are due to attend a G20 summit in China early next month, giving them an opportunity to meet for the first time since May became prime minister in July.
Relations between Russia and Britain are strained by differences over Ukraine and Syria as well as by what London says is a sharp increase in flights by long-range Russian bombers near British air space.
