Russian President Vladimir Putin Wednesday, November 9 congratulated Donald Trump on his victory in us elections, hoping to work with him to improve relations, the Kremlin said in a statement, AFP reports. He noted North Atlantic Treaty Organisation recently agreed to deploy a Russia-deterrent force and that "we have more work to do" on that.

"I look forward to meeting Mr. Trump soon, and welcoming him to Brussels for the NATO Summit next year to discuss the way forward", added the NATO chief.

In July, the head of the Latvian parliament's foreign relations committee, Ojars Eriks Kalnins, said Trump's comments about Baltic defence were "very dangerous" and contradicted policies of both the U.S. Republican and Democrat parties.

In a series of war games conducted between summer 2014 and spring 2015, RAND Arroyo Center examined the shape and probable outcome of a near-term Russian invasion of the Baltic states.

And he said Mr Trump will also become a "recruiting tool" for ISIS because of his anti-Islam rhetoric.

And Mr Putin hopes Mr Trump will stand by his campaign comments on working more closely with Russian Federation in the fight against terrorism - which could ease tensions between the two powers in Syria.

General Lord Richards said defeated presidential rival Hilary Clinton was more likely to set the West on a course for war if she pushed ahead with a safe zone in Syria that might require U.S. aircraft to shoot down the Russian fighter jets.
