He expressed readiness to discuss global problems with other countries, if the need arises.
Putin pointed out that China and Germany are moving towards the status of superpowers in terms of their political and economic influence, the Russian news agency Interfax wrote, Reuters reported.
Ahead of the November 3 US presidential election, Putin said he hoped the new administration would be ready for a dialogue on security and control of nuclear weapons.
Putin warned that there is no future without an arms control system and added that Russia's security without an arms control agreement would not suffer.
Also, the Russian president called on the United States to help Russia reach a solution to the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, where, according to Putin, about 5.000 people died.
"There are a lot of victims, more than 2.000 on each side," Putin said.
