Trump shouldn't have withdrawn from Paris Climate Accord: Putin


Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to assuage concerns caused by President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, calling for a constructive dialogue on efforts needed to curb global warming.

Putin, who addressed the session before Modi, also spoke of Russia's attractiveness for investors, pointing out the technological advancements of its youth. Putin replied. "Your underage daughter could do that. That is not proof", Putin replied. "They can be in Russian Federation, in Asia...even in America, Latin America". While much of the discussion in Saint Petersburg was dominated by politics Putin also attempted to burnish Russia's economic prospects as it inches its way out of the longest recession in two decades sparked by a slump in oil prices and Western sanctions over Ukraine.

She is scheduled to interview Putin one-on-one on Friday.

Putin dismissed the hacking allegations "idle prattle", "harmful" and issued his latest flat-out denial that Russian Federation was behind the hacking. "Stop this!" he said. He called allegations "idle prattle" and "internal political bickering". "Even in those reports, there is no specific evidence, no facts".

The Russian leader, who is keen to try to fix battered U.S. -Russia ties, said he thought there was no point dwelling on Trump's decision since the U.S. leader may be of the view that the necessary financial and other resources needed to comply with the accord may not be sufficient.

Kelly's repeated questions about the investigations into Trump's ties with Russian Federation provoked one of Putin's most fiery performances in years, laced with numerous jokes at the Americans' expense. CNBC reported that Putin said "this hysteria" about Trump and Russian Federation "never seems to stop" and asked if a "pill" existed to stop the hysteria.

Kushner met with the ambassador, Sergei Kislyak, in early December, and suggested establishing a secure communications line between the Kremlin and Trump officials at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to US officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak's account.

The four islands, called the Northern Territories in Japan and the southern Kurils in Russian Federation, were seized by the former Soviet Union at the end of the World War II, preventing the two countries from signing a peace treaty. Soviet Union but North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is still there.

Putin also said he wouldn't judge Trump for quitting a landmark climate pact, but said he thought Washington could have stayed in the agreement. He said terrorism has no boundaries and all countries should fight it collectively.

The Russian president added that this "attempt to solve internal political issues using instruments of foreign policy" was damaging global relations.

Trump has been pressing his 27 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to up their military spending to the 2 percent of GDP recommended by the alliance - a threshold only a handful of them meet. He sees North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as a Western encroachment on Russia's borders.

"It reminds me of anti-Semitism", Putin said, his voice rising.
