Moscow - Russian President Vladimir Putin says he hopes US-Russian relations will improve after President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

Putin, speaking at a conference in Moscow on Wednesday, said in his phone call with Trump they agreed that "the current unsatisfactory condition of the US-Russian ties needs to be mended."

Putin argued that their degradation wasn't Russia's fault, but added that Moscow was ready to "walk its part of the way" to repair them.

Putin said he "would like to hope that there will be a chance to improve relations, which are important not only for the peoples of both countries, but also for global stability and security."

Trump's team said he told Putin in a November 16 call that he looks forward to "a strong and enduring relationship with Russia and the people of Russia."
