Putin ridicules US focus on ambassador contacts

"Help us restore normal political dialogue", Putin said.

Iranian Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Mahmoud Vaezi arrived in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Friday to hold talks with senior Russian officials and attend the International Economic Forum.

Asked about the "fingerprints", IP addresses allegedly belonging to Russian hackers, he said those could have been easily rigged and couldn't stand as credible evidence.

"If they [hackers] are patriotically-minded, they start to make their own contribution to what they believe is the good fight against those who speak badly about Russian Federation".

The prime minister said he was glad that Putin had yesterday publicly stated that the resolution would be discussed.

"I believe that if a sound, pragmatic look is taken at this situation, where mutually beneficial economic contacts are curtailed, it will become clear that it can not suit Russian or USA businesses", he said. "Trump's team was more efficient during the election campaign".

Merkel vows 'more decisive action than ever' on climate
Modi said India wants to enhance cooperation with Germany to replicate the success achieved by the key European nation. But the Merkel-Trump meetings in Brussels and Sicily were apparently too much even for the stoical chancellor.

"We are ready to support bilateral business projects, that include equal, constructive partnership and cooperation", he said.

"The most important this is that we don't do that on government level", he said.

Hours after the USA president walked out of the Paris climate accord, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday reiterated India's commitment to reducing carbon emission and leaving an earth which is "beautiful and pure" for the future generations.

Earlier in the day, Trump had announced that the United States was withdrawing from the Paris climate change deal and accused China and India of benefitting from the accord at the expense of the US.

"But it turned out that he was right", Putin said.

"You shouldn't make a noise about this, but should create the conditions for joint work", Putin said at an economic forum, adding that Trump had said he wanted to renegotiate a new deal.

Oil slides as US climate withdrawal compounds glut concerns
OPEC and non-OPEC countries are committed to bringing global oil inventories down to the industry's 5-year average. The U.S. shale oil boom is recovering from the crash faster than nearly anyone imagined, OPEC included.

Russian Federation has reiterated selling S-400 missile systems to India and Turkey.

Mr. Snowden, 33, was given asylum in Russian Federation in 2013 after leaking classified information about US spy operations.

Putin said that economic restrictions against Russian Federation have had "zero effect", predicting that the current strain in relations will ease, because "it's counterproductive and harmful for all".

When asked directly whether Russian Federation interfered in the election, Putin said in March: "Read my lips: No". The US president said the agreement unfairly benefited countries like India and China.
