Top White House spokesmen did not immediately respond to a request asking them to confirm or deny the Kremlin's claim that Trump congratulated Putin.
"I think probably we'll be seeing President Putin and the not-too-distant future", Trump told reporters during a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
But any meeting between the two leaders would be controversial, given the ongoing investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 elections.
British officials have blamed the nerve agent attack on Skripal and his adult daughter on Russian Federation. The president has fiercely denied suggestions that Moscow played a role in his 2016 election, tweeting on Sunday, "There is NO COLLUSION!".
The call has generated controversy as Donald Trump continues to face allegations that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and his reluctance to take any action against Russian Federation in retaliation, including enacting sanctions passed with the overwhelming bipartisan support of Congress that Trump delayed.
Putin and Trump agreed on the need to work together to avoid a possible arms race, the Kremlin said, adding: "Special attention was devoted to working through the question of a possible high-level meeting".
In their phone call, the two leaders also discussed the importance of denuclearizing North Korea. Trump also said he and Putin might meet "in the not too distant future" to discuss the arms race and other matters. Other issues that will be discussed during the bilateral meeting will be Ukraine, Syria, and North Korea, Trump added.

"Satisfaction has been expressed with a certain decrease in tensions around the Korean peninsula", the Kremlin said.
"The leaders spoke out in favor of developing practical cooperation in various spheres including the issues of ensuring strategic stability and the fight against worldwide terrorism", the statement added.
The Kremlin said Tuesday's conversation had been broadly constructive and focused on overcoming problems in relations. British Prime Minister Theresa May said it is "highly likely" the Kremlin is responsible for the attack.
At the White House briefing which followed Trump's comments, press secretary Sarah Sanders was immediately inundated with questions about Russian Federation.
Trump's call with Putin came less than a week after the US issued financial sanctions against a St. Petersburg-based "troll farm" and Russian intelligence services that are alleged to have meddled in the 2016 election on the president's behalf.
With almost 100 per cent of the votes counted, the Central Election Commission (CEC), announced that Putin, who has run Russian Federation as president or prime minister since 1999, had won 76.69 per cent of the vote.
Putin was widely expected to win re-election to his fourth term as opposition leaders and monitoring groups raised accusations of voting irregularities, including ballot stuffing and voter coercion. "The feasibility of continuing consistent efforts to resolve the situation by peaceful, diplomatic means is emphasized", it said. "It goes without saying that not everything depends on us - as with love, both sides have to be involved, otherwise there can be no love at all", he said.
