    Russia's president has accused the US of attacking telecoms giant Huawei to weaken China, and called the possibility of a US war with Iran a “catastrophe”.

    Vladimir Putin made the comments during his annual question-and-answer session with the public.

    But much of the questioning focused on domestic issues.
