“In general, the tone of the conversation was in line with those statements made during the (Trump’s, - ed.) campaign about Russian-American relations,” said Peskov.

“But the issues you specify were not addressed. Barack Obama remains the President in office and we continue working just with him until the inauguration (of the new president of America, - ed.)” noted Peskov.
