Modi leaves for France after wrapping up Russian Federation visit

At the same time, Mr Putin sidestepped a question on Kashmir, and said "it is up to you" to assess whether Pakistan is fuelling terrorism in the Indian state.

"I want to pass the buck back to you - help us to restore a normal political dialogue", he said at the forum.

"Somehow we here aren't feeling that the temperature is really rising, but we should be thankful to President Trump". "He found the right approach to those groups of the population, to those voters whom he targeted".

United States intelligence officials have said Russian Federation tried to interfere in the USA election by hacking Trump's opponents, a charge that has deepened a political scandal which has focused on whether Trump had improper ties with Moscow, something he flatly denies.

"The other (Clinton) team miscalculated".

Ambassador Sergei Kislyak's meetings with members of Trump's team have been a focus of the congressional investigation. Putin insisted that the hackers could have tried to make it look like Moscow was behind the act. What's an ambassador supposed to do? Putin said. "He's paid for holding meetings, discussing current affairs".

"My answer is no", he said. "We didn't even start negotiations". "It will if it leads to NATO's breakup, but we aren't seeing any such breakup yet". "They can be in Russian Federation, in Asia...even in America, Latin America".

In an oblique disapproval of the U.S. decision to quit the Paris climate change accord, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said he was not taking sides with countries on the issue as he was focussed on protection of the environment for future generations.

Challenged by Kelly to explain what USA intelligence referred to as a disinformation campaign meant to undermine faith in the elections, Putin pointed to leaked emails that showed the Democratic National Committee's favouritism for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, which led to the resignation of the committee's chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Vladimir Isachenkov reported from Moscow.
