Venezuela was one of the topics.
She did not say which arms control agreement Trump and Putin discussed, but the Russian state news agency Tass reported that they talked about the New START treaty, the last major arms-control treaty remaining between the USA and Russia.
Trump has consistently said he would not rule out military options for the crisis, though he has emphasized he hopes for a peaceful transition of power.
Washington backs opposition leader Juan Guaido and Moscow supports President Nicolas Maduro. "Russia has sent at least a planeload full of these little green men that we've seen in eastern Ukraine and they are destabilizing the situation" now in Venezuela. And I feel the same way. "Getting along with countries is a good thing and we want to have good relations with everybody". "At the Moment the people are starving".

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer criticized the president's comments in a tweet, saying that Trump's priorities were "appalling and undermine democracy".
But Pompeo, who appeared on multiple shows, including Fox News Sunday and ABC's This Week, suggested a personal admonishment from Trump wasn't necessary. Schumer wrote, in reference to USA broadcaster Fox News, which the president frequently cites and where he is often featured.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later on Friday that Trump simply was "relaying what President Putin said to him".
Sanders said the two leaders spoke extensively about North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
Trump and Putin, who last had an informal discussion at a dinner of world leaders in Buenos Aires on December 1, briefly talked about the Mueller report that concluded Trump did not collude with Russian Federation during his 2016 presidential campaign.
