The statement also said that Putin asked Trump to pass on his thanks to the Central Intelligence Agency officers who had gathered the information, adding that Russian Federation would do the same if it ever received any information on planned attacks against the U.S.
According to the Kremlin, the Russian president called his United States counterpart on Sunday after the CIA supplied intelligence which allowed Russia's security services (FSB) to break up a "terror cell" planning an attack on Russia's second biggest city.
According to Vesti, Putin asked Trump to thank CIA Director Mike Pompeo for providing the information, and he told the USA president that "the Russian security services, in the case where they receive information regarding terrorist threats in relation to the US and its citizens, will without question and immediately pass it to their American colleagues".
The Russian leader reassured the U.S. president that "Russian security services, should they have information about possible terrorist threats to the United States and its citizens, will swiftly and unconditionally share it with the USA colleagues via partner channels", the press service stressed.
This is the second time in less than a week that two of the world's most powerful leaders have exchanged messages of praise.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the call had taken place and tweeted that a full readout of the call would be released.
Russia's FSB security service said in a statement on Friday that it had detained seven members of a cell of Islamic State supporters and seized a significant amount of explosives, weapons and extremist literature.
Russian news reports said that Kazan Cathedral, a landmark 19th century Russian Orthodox church on St. Petersburg's central Nevsky Prospect, was the prime target.
Three other men were arrested in St. Petersburg on December 14. One segment showed FSB operatives outside a St. Petersburg apartment building detaining a suspect, who appeared later saying he was told to prepare homemade bombs rigged with shrapnel. Another video showed operatives breaking the doors and raiding an apartment used by other suspects.
