Deputy Prime Minister Hans-Christian Strache, leader of the Freedom Party, went as far as to agree to a "cooperation pact" with Mr. Putin's United Russia party. "This in my view is very important - at this level a mutual respect has to exist in all circumstances, and a personal relationship can become a tool for solving worldwide issues", said the Russian President.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that he had warned European countries years ago about the risk of the United States imposing its rules on others, and that they were now paying the price for ignoring him.

In a phone call to Putin in March, Mr. Trump proposed their holding a summit.

When asked about accusations of Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, which US intelligence agencies have determined to be true, Putin dismissed the allegations as a "joke". The two countries aim to boost co-operation in areas such as infrastructure, energy, scientific research and high tech.

'You have just said that Mr Prigozhin is referred to as 'Putin's chef, ' Putin said.

Putin noted the 2018 midterm elections and the 2020 presidential election while saying, "the President of the United States is coming under attack over various matters", Putin said.

Austria's OMV is now among European companies involved in the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline that would double the amount of gas Russian Federation can send directly to Germany, skirting transit countries such as Ukraine - a project opposed by the USA and some other EU members.

More surprisingly, Putin said that he deploys informal terms when talking to Emmanuel Macron, despite what must have been several tense conversations over sanctions and Syria in the past year.

His welcome in Austria with a full military reception comes after the new populist government in Italy also said it wanted to restore traditionally close relations between Rome and Moscow, with sanctions to be reviewed.

The Russian president said he was not planning to withdraw his military forces from Syria and would remain there as long as their presence serves Russia's interests.

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.

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after talks with Putin.

The legislation gives the president, among other things, the power to sever ties with unfriendly countries, and to ban trade of goods with those countries.

Austria will take over the 28-nation EU's rotating presidency for six months in July.
