WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he will probably meet Russian President Vladimir Putin who won Sunday's election in a landslide victory "in the not too distant future".

"I had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on the victory," Trump told reporters at the White House before his meeting with visiting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud.

"The call had to do also with the fact that we will probably get together in the not too distant future," Trump added.

Trump said that they could discuss the arms race between Washington and Moscow and also talk about issues including Ukraine, Syria and the Korean Peninsula.
