PM Modi affirms India's commitment to protecting climate

The European Union's top climate change official, Miguel Arias Canente, said in a statement that Trump's decision to leave the Paris accord made it "a sad day for the global community", adding that the bloc "deeply regrets the unilateral decision". Most recently, Jared Kushner's ties to prominent Russian banker Sergey Gorkov, a close associate of Putin have fallen under intense focus amid the ongoing and ever-widening Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. "There are only assumptions and conclusions on based on suppositions".

St. Petersburg: Expressing concerns over Russian-US relations hitting record-low since Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on American businessmen to help establish "constructive dialogue" between the two nations.

Modi said he was asked a similar question in Germany earlier this week, before the United States decision was made public. "It was necessary to apologize to the people and vow not to make such mistakes in the future".

When it came to the alleged hacking, he said there were no "Russian fingerprints".

Explaining the talents of youth in India, he said: "There have been lot of attempts taken by several countries to reach Mars, but it was only India who had managed to reach Mars in a single trial".

He blamed the Democrats for the failure to acknowledge their mistakes in the campaign, and "taking internal USA political squabbles into the global arena".

During an interview with a French newspaper that took place Monday, Putin said the USA intelligence community's conclusions about Russia-orchestrated cyberattacks and election meddling are a "fiction" motivated by the "desire of those who lost the US elections to improve their standing by accusing Russian Federation of interfering".

"What else is the ambassador supposed to do?"

The Russian leader did get heated when discussing the Russian collusion, asking moderator Megyn Kelly if there was "a pill" that could stop this "hysteria".

The Russian president implied that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is irrelevant now that the Cold War is over (in 2001, he said Russia should be allowed to join the alliance).

He said: "It is a city that was facing economic collapse and was able to come back through innovation and change".

Other world leaders have reacted with anger and defiance after President Trump announced that the United States, the world's second biggest carbon emitter, was quitting the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

He warned against making a fuss over the USA exit from the Paris deal and urged to establish conditions for joint work, reports Sputnik news agency.
