U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said there should be no reset in Washington’s relations with Moscow, The New York Times reports.


The U.S. president-elect said that he had talked with President Vladimir Putin of Russia since winning the election, but he did not elaborate, according to The New York Times.

He said it would be "nice" if he and Mr. Putin could get along, but he rejected the idea that any warming of relations would be called a "reset," noting the criticism that Mrs. Clinton received after her attempts at bettering relations between the countries failed.
