Putin urges US business to help normalize Russia-US ties

Speaking Friday at an economic forum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Putin avoided criticizing Trump for the move that has caused worldwide opprobrium.

President Trump on Thursday announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, arguing that the 2015 agreement was detrimental to the USA economy.

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. "We want to carry everyone along for development", he said.

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Thursday that Moscow attached "great significance" to the deal despite anything the United States might do.

Belousov said Russian Federation was analysing the US move, but said Russia's own plans did not depend on the decision of others, including the United States.

Refusing to be drawn into a debate on whether he supported or was opposed to President Donald Trump's action, Modi said he will take the side of the future generations and held the view that mankind can not exploit nature. Russian President also said that Trump's promise to negotiate new conditions for the United States leaves hope for reaching a compromise on the Paris deal before it takes effect in 2021.

"It's easy to say 'we are not guilty, it's the Russians who are guilty - they interfered in our elections, but we are good", Putin said. "And I know the world will minutely scrutinize every word for future direction of our relations". "Exploitation of nature is not acceptable to us", he said. "This does not include nuclear energy but is only solar, wind, biomass and hydro (power)". He said it unfairly benefited countries like India and China.

"It is an inter-connected and inter-dependent world".

Prime Minister Modi further said that India is a responsible nation and seriously considers climate change a threat. He even tried to calm an inquisitive Kelly by asking: "Isn't there a pill they can give you?"
