Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that a 3-year-old could have hacked the USA election and that his country was not responsible. Responding to a question from NBC's Megyn Kelly on stage at the forum in St. Petersburg, Putin also downplayed.

Speaking at a meeting with senior editors of leading worldwide news agencies Thursday, Putin said that some individual "patriotic" hackers could mount some attacks amid the current cold spell in Russia's relations with the West.

Likening hackers to free-spirited artists acting according to their moods, he said cyber-attacks could be made to look like they had come from Russian Federation when they had not.

Defending Mr Trump's decision, vice president Mike Pence dismissed climate change as "a paramount issue for the left".

Claiming that ease of doing business in India has improved vastly, Modi said top global institutions like the World Bank and IMF, the World Economic Forum and all rating agencies agree that India is among the top three favoured destinations for FDI.

The world has increasingly become inter-connected and inter-dependent, a transformation that has made it necessary for India and China to cooperate on trade and investments despite a simmering border dispute, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday. "Entertaining themselves. It's a systematic, rude and absolutely unceremonious interference in our domestic policies that lasts for many years, also at a diplomatic level", he said.

The given initiatives have been drafted and discussed involving experts and the Supreme Court's senior staff, Putin added.

"But it turned out that he was right", Putin said. "We did not have any statement from anyone at that time", he said in an apparent reference to Trump's announcement. A nation of 1.2 billion people invites the world. Thats how we can fight terrorism, ” he said. Russian Federation is also a huge country.

He said India was the first country to reach Mars in its first attempt and the cost of that project was cheaper than even a Hollywood movie.

He asks Putin whether, as a former KGB agent, he despises Snowden - who was given refuge in Russian Federation after he initiated one of the largest data leaks in United States history.
