Putin on climate deal: 'Don't worry, be happy'

Earlier, Trump accused India of extracting "billions and billions and billions" of dollars in foreign aid from the developed world to sign up for the climate accord and pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord.

He described the focus on Kislyak's contacts as "catastrophic nonsense". "There are only assumptions and conclusions on based on suppositions".

Putin also said that United States' intelligence agencies blaming Russian Federation for the interference "reminds me of anti-Semitism and blaming the Jews".

Modi said he was asked a similar question in Germany earlier this week, before the U.S. decision was made public.

According to the Russian president, politicians backing Hillary Clinton miscalculated the mood during the United States campaign. "It's easier to say that it's not our fault, that it's the Russians, they meddled in our elections and we're the good guys".

Pressed by Kelly to explain the Russian "fingerprints" described by the combined intelligence agencies' declassified report, Putin sneered that the IP addresses the report attributed to Russian hackers could've been rigged by anyone to blame Russia.

"This is a transferral, I repeat, of internal political squabbling in the United States onto the global arena", he said.

"Don't worry, be happy", said Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday adamantly denied having any involvement in the USA election.

"What else is the ambassador supposed to do?" "If you're not intending to attack anybody, why increase your military spending?" he asked.

He also spoke at length about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, asking why President Trump has griped that members of the organization are not spending enough. "He must meet, discuss current affairs, negotiate".

Putin, addressing senior U.S. business executives during an economic forum in St Petersburg, said Moscow would continue to talk to U.S. President Donald Trump and the new U.S. administration.

President Putin recalled that Russian Federation and the United States are influential world powers and asserted that the two sides maintain a dialogue within the framework of different formats in the Group of 20 in the APEC and other organizations and interact on key global and regional issues.

Recalling Bollywood actor Raj Kapoor, who was very popular in Russia, Modi said that even the younger generation in Russia are familiar with the veteran actor.

India is committed to protecting climate, irrespective the Paris agreement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here today but avoided a direct reference to the United States withdrawing from the global deal.
