Hundreds of people also marched through the streets of the Finnish capital, demonstrating against Trump and Putin's presence in the country.

President Trump was asked a very straightforward question about Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

"My people came to me - Dan Coats came to me, some others - they said they think it's Russia", Trump said, referring to the director of national intelligence.

Putin chuckled at the idea that Russian Federation had collected any compromising material on Trump, saying he wasn't even aware that Trump was in Moscow for the 2013 Miss Universe contest (even though, according to the testimony of several of those involved, Putin's chief spokesman had been attempting to arrange a meeting with Trump during the pageant).

Putin also addressed the issue of "so-called interference", saying he "had to repeat that the Russian state never interfered, and does not plan to interfere in internal American electoral process".

On Syria, a possible deal could see Moscow helping mediate the withdrawal of Iranian forces and their Hezbollah proxies from the areas alongside Syria's border with Israel - a diplomatic coup that would reflect Russia's carefully cultivated ties with both Israel and Iran.
