  • We must respond to US tariffs end sanctions on Russia’ – Austrian vice chancellor

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday a decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to set up a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was "brave and mature", and said that he was expecting a "positive outcome".

"Russia, of all countries, is not interested in it because North Korea is our neighbor", Putin said, according to a transcript of the interview published by the Russian presidency. The country also continues to be a major hub for the import of Russian gas into Europe, and saw trade with Russia increase by 40% over the a year ago, in spite of the sanction regime.

Mr. Kurz's government has emerged as one of the biggest advocates in the European Union for a more constructive relationship with Russian Federation, and that approach will likely impact the European Union when Austria takes over the rotating presidency of the bloc from Bulgaria on July 1.

Putin spoke after meeting liberal President Alexander Van der Bellen.

The country's new government of conservatives and populists, headed by the youthful Mr. Kurz, 32, is more pro-Russian than ever due to the presence of the far-right Austrian Freedom Party in the coalition formed last December.

Mr Putin's sixth official visit to the country marks the 50th anniversary of the start of Soviet gas deliveries to the country.

"The more problems at the heart of the European Union, the more risks and problems there are for us".

Former Presidents Barack Obama and George H.W. Bush both met formally with the Russian President within six months of taking office, with Obama traveling to the Kremlin in July 2009 to meet then-President Dmitry Medvedev and Putin, who was prime minister at the time.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said at a joint news conference with Frank-Walter Steinmeier that he believes Nord Stream 2 would undermine the security of central and eastern Europe.

In Warsaw on Tuesday, Poland's president expressed his country's disapproval of the planned Russian-German gas pipeline to the visiting German president.

"Under such circumstances, it makes little sense - viewed from a purely economic point of view - to replace Russian gas with American liquefied gas", he told reporters.

The pipeline project has become a deeply divisive issue in Europe.
