MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump is a clever man and will understand the level of his new responsibility quickly, Russian President Vladimir Putin was quoted by news agencies as saying in an interview with NTV TV. In the interview, first broadcast in Russia's Far Eastern city of Vladivostok, Putin also said that attempts to create a unipolar world have failed and that the world's balance was being gradually restored.

Cuba closes a major chapter in its history Sunday as it buries Fidel Castro and gazes at a future without the communist icon who defied Washington and ruled for decades. Capping a week of tributes and mass rallies, Castro's ashes will be interred at the Santa Ifigenia cemetery in Santiago de Cuba, the eastern city where his revolution was launched more than a half-century ago. President Raul Castro led a massive, final rally in his brother's honor at Santiago's Revolution Plaza late Saturday, leading the crowd into pledge to uphold the revolution.
