Putin also said that allegations there had been a secret deal between Moscow and Trump before his inauguration as US president were "hysteria".
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. Fingerprints of snouts and horse hooves?
President Macron said, "It's indispensable to talk to Russian Federation because there are a number of global subjects that will not be resolved without a tough dialogue with them".
Maintaining that Russian Federation would continue the dialogue with US President Donald Trump and the new administration, President Putin said that serious efforts on both sides are needed to achieve serious success in the matter.
Despite the conclusion from the USA intelligence community that hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign was directed by Russia, Putin maintains his country was not involved.
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 favoritism for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, which led to the resignation of the committee's chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
"Trying to spy on your allies, if you really consider them allies and not vassals, is just indecent". He also said the attacks could have been staged to appear to come from Russian Federation. "And we need to think what to do further", he said.
Kelly directed most of her questions at Putin, asking him to respond to allegations in the ongoing US investigations of possible collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign to influence to presidential election.
Putin said the 2015 Paris accord was a good document, but that Russian Federation had not yet ratified it because it was waiting for certain technical details to be settled.
It was now better to try to see what kind of climate deal could be agreed, said Putin.
"Of course, we know that Vladimir Putin would always tell the truth", Leahy said, dryly. He said her supporters were now trying to blame Russian Federation for their failure.
"I said it in then, I say it now", he added.
Putin also said that India was facing a serious problem on account of terrorism and it was not an "imaginary thing".
