Donald Trump thanks Vladimir Putin for remarks on strong U.S. economy

The former USA ambassador to Russia said Friday that it was "shocking" that President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE was allowed to call Russian President Vladimir Putin and thank him for praising the US economy.

"We're going to see what happens with North Korea". North Korea also started as a Soviet satellite state, so its ties with Russian Federation run deep.

"China is helping. Russian Federation is not helping, we would like to have Russia's help - very important".

The two presidents discussed ways to work together to address North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons program, with Mr Putin warning the United States against using force against the rogue nation. If true, that would contradict Trump's assertion that China is "helping" with the situation. Tillerson said about 35,000 of the workers are in Russian Federation right now.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya shot back, saying North Korean workers are in Russian Federation as part of a bilateral agreement "which guarantees their rights", and they are not subject to slave-like conditions. "Why does it all have to take on some tint of spymania?" he said.

"So wait, President Trump called Vladimir Putin, for the sole goal of thanking Putin for praising America's economic performance under Trump?!"

Russian Federation has supported harsh economic sanctions leveled against Pyongyang by the U.N. but also has been quietly continuing trade with the reclusive nation. Beijing has made overtures to Pyongyang in this regard, but has so far been unsuccessful in convincing Kim that stepping away from his nuclear program would be in North Korea's best interests.

He also welcomed the US' "awareness of reality" in the North Korea situation.

North Korea has conducted more than 20 ballistic missile tests during 2017 and its most powerful nuclear explosion to date.
