Putin has "continued efforts to try to subvert democratic processes that must be defended", Mattis said, stressing he was unsure whether there were growing threats from Russian Federation.

"The Taliban have made clear the lives of the Afghan people are of no value to them".

Mattis said, in the Indo-Pacific region, we keep our decades-old alliances strong by building new partnerships. "We will be under attack".

Citing Russia's seizure of Ukrainian vessels and sailors, President Donald Trump canceled his plans to meet with Putin at this weekend's Group of 20 summit in Argentina, but he said he looked forward to meeting Putin soon. He stressed that Russian Federation tried to interfere in mid-term elections in the USA last month - the same as it did in 2016, but the American authorities will take all necessary to continue to reliably protect our democracy.

"Mr. Putin is clearly a "slow learner" (an expression, often translated as" slowly thinking, " stupid", - ed.). "He is not recognizing that what he is doing is actually creating the animosity against his people, he's not acting in the best interest of the Russian people", the secretary said during Q&A following his keynote speech.


"What we are seeing Putin do with his ripping up of global agreements. we're dealing with someone that we simply can not trust", the Pentagon chief added. Trump tweeted while on his way to Buenos Aires.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday said the Ukraine events were the only reason Trump canceled his planned formal meeting with Putin in Argentina, not developments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

"It is regrettable that we can't succeed in holding a full-scale meeting, which is long due", Putin said, adding that issues of strategic stability would be of paramount importance.

After the 2016 presidential election, the US intelligence community unanimously concluded that Russian Federation meddled in the USA political system.
