Putin and Trump hold talks on coronavirus and plunging oil prices
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday discussed closer cooperation on the coronavirus with US President Donald Trump, with the two agreeing on "consultations" about oil prices, the Kremlin said.
They "discussed closer cooperation between the two countries" on the coronavirus response, it said, without giving details.
The oil prices crashed earlier this month after a collapse of talks between Saudi-led OPEC and Moscow, unleashing a price war.
Trump earlier Monday said he was also expecting Putin to request the lifting of US sanctions.
