Putin hopes to mend ties with US, boost anti-terror efforts
"Russia-US Cooperation in solving global and regional problems answers the interests of the entire world," AP quoted Putin as saying.
Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday expressed hope for mending ties with the US and beef up efforts in the fight against terror.
Ties between the two countries have been strained of late over several issues including the developments in Ukraine and Syria, and Moscow hopes that President-elect Donald Trump would help repair the bilateral relations.
"Russia-US Cooperation in solving global and regional problems answers the interests of the entire world," the AP quoted the Russian president as saying in a state-of-the-nation address.
"We share responsibility for ensuring global security and stability and strengthening the non-proliferation regime," Putin said.
Tensions escalated after the Obama administration accused Moscow of hacking political sites and email accounts.
Kremlin rejected the accusations.
