Trump, Putin agree to coordinate on fighting Islamic State

President Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin spoke by phone Saturday and agreed to establish "real coordination" to "crush ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria," the Kremlin said, referring to the Islamic State.
The White House put out a short statement later on the one-hour phone call, saying it "ranged in topics from mutual cooperation in defeating ISIS to efforts in working together to achieve more peace throughout the world including Syria."
It added that "the positive call was a significant start to improving the relationship between the United States and Russia that is in need of repair."

DEBKAfile was the first and only publication to pick up on the Trump-Putin pact from its onset and continue to track its progress.
