US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have discussed alleged Russian meddling in the US.

In their first meeting on the sidelines of G20 Summit in German city of Hamburg, both leaders agreed to focus on better ties rather than litigating the past.

Later, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that Trump had positive chemistry with Putin during the meeting, which lasted some two hours and 15 minutes.

President Trump conveyed Putin the concerns of the American people regarding Moscow's interference in the 2016 election which was denied by the Russian President.
