MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Thursday defended Russia's involvement in Iraqi Kurdistan's energy sector, saying it was in accordance with the law and was not designed to foment disagreement between the semi-autonomous region and Baghdad.

Last month Russian state oil major Rosneft signed a deal to help Kurdistan develop its gas reserves and build a gas pipeline, expanding the company's dominance in the Iraqi region's energy sector.
