DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. December 1, 2016, 5:48 PM (IDT)

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called on US President-elect Donald Trump to cooperate with him in fighting international terror. He said in a televised speech to the Russian nation that the Kremlin is ready to work with Trump’s administration but that the two countries should first normalize their ties and develop the bilateral relationship. Putin’s overture may pose a dilemma for Trump in light of the close cooperation between Russia, Iran and the Hizballah organization. Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu in the Turkish city of Alanya to discuss the crisis in Syria and ways of ending it. 

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.

    Well, it is obvious that first we need to get rid of this menace and defeat the terrorists, which is something this current administration is not so inclined to want to do. I think it would be great if we could strengthen our relations with Russia. Go ahead, let em team up, and try to rid this world of all the evil doers.

    Keeping jobs in the US, and not getting us into nuclear war with Russia, and he has not even officially in office yet. Trump is my kind of president!
