Putin urges US business to help normalize Russia-US ties

Agreeing with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Modi said technology was going to play a key role, and mentioned the Digital India initiative.

Speaking at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, Putin said he did not want to judge Trump for his decision, but thought Washington could have remained in the 2015 Paris climate pact by amending the scale of existing USA undertakings.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was due to go one-on-one with NBC News' Megyn Kelly on Friday. "It's a proper document aimed at solving one of today's global problems", said Putin.

Thursday, Putin suggested that free-spirited Russians hackers, behaving more like artists than espionage agents, could have broken into the Democratic National Committee computers. "Exploitation of nature is not acceptable to us", he said. "It was necessary to apologise to the people and vow not to make such mistakes in the future".

Ambassador Sergei Kislyak's meetings with members of Trump's team have been a focus of the congressional investigation.

Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), he quoted the Vedas to say "exploiting of the nature is a crime but milking of the nature by humans is a right".


Putin on Friday also echoed a popular talking point of Trump's, that investigations into ties with Russian Federation is a fake story put forth by Democrats bitter they lost the election. We ought to understand what is happening and where it will lead us. "There were no agreements".

"If you're not intending to attack anybody, why increase your military spending?" asked Putin.

Russian Federation has signed the Paris climate pact, but is the biggest emitter of global greenhouse gases not to have ratified it yet.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said USA officials blaming Russia of interfence in the US election to help Donald Trump become president "reminds me of anti-Semitism and blaming the Jews".

MOSCOW, June 2 Russian Federation said on Friday it was still likely to back the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change despite the USA withdrawal from the pact, but a Kremlin aide said Washington's pull-out left a gaping hole in the deal. Nato, which was established as a check on the Soviet Union, has been moving military assets into Baltic states and Poland following Russia's annexation of Ukraine, which many countries in Europe viewed as an act of aggression.

"Now, we could blame this all on American imperialism, that it's all their fault", he continued.
