Paris or no Paris, India committed to climate protection: Modi

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. "President [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan knows about this and our military knows and the Turkish military knows too", Putin said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that a 3-year-old could have hacked the US election and that his country was not responsible. Nicaragua refused to sign because of the voluntary nature of the agreement, with Nicaragua's climate negotiator at the time saying, "We're not going to submit because voluntary responsibility is a path to failure".

"Don't worry, be happy!".

Only Syria and Nicaragua are non-participants in the 195-nation accord agreed in Paris in 2015.

Russian President Vladimir Putin denied Friday that his government had anything to do with hacking operations aimed at disrupting the USA election a year ago.

The countries that signed up agreed to take measures that cut the amount of Carbon dioxide being produced.

Kushner then held a secret meeting with Sergei Gorkov, head of Russia's Kremlin-connected development bank, a meeting the White House says was one of many diplomatic encounters Kushner, now a presidential adviser, held in the weeks before Trump's inauguration.

Putin also said that India was facing a serious problem on account of terrorism and it was not an "imaginary thing".

"This is because we are moving ahead as a responsible country while protecting the environment and this is our very old commitment", he said. He said it unfairly benefited countries like India and China.

"Does squabbling over North Atlantic Treaty Organisation help Russian Federation?" he said.

us intelligence agencies have accused Russian Federation of hacking into Democratic Party emails, helping Donald Trump's election victory, and the congressional and FBI investigations into the Trump campaign's ties with Russian Federation have broken the Kremlin's hopes for a detente with Washington. "And he would never want to do anything that might hurt the interest of the United States".

"In the carefully scripted world of Kremlin power politics, Putin is taking a calculated risk that Trump will emerge from what the USA president has called a 'witch hunt" and deliver on his pledge of better relations with Russian Federation.
