Russian President Vladimir Putin reportedly told U.S. President Donald Trump that his country's hackers are too good to get caught, according to The New York Times.

"Moscow's cyberoperators are so good at covert computer-network operations that if they had dipped into the Democratic National Committee's systems, they would not have been caught," writes the Times, describing what Putin told Trump during a meeting in Hamburg, Germany earlier this month.

Trump has repeatedly expressed doubts about Russia's involvement in the email leaks that plagued the Democratic Party during the election. However, Trump reportedly raised the subject of election interference at this meeting.

"He began by raising the concern of the American people of Russian interference in the 2016 election," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters after the meeting, according to the Times. "He pressed him more than once."

Russian foreign minister Sergei V. Lavrov described a less contentious talk in his comments to Russian reporters.

"President Trump said that this campaign has already taken on a rather strange character, because over the many months that these accusations have been made, not a single fact has been presented," Lavrov said.

"President Trump said that he had heard the clear statements from President Putin about this being untrue, that the Russian leadership did not interfere in the election, and that he accepts these statements."
