  • Donald Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping

He said that Russian Federation did not choose to leave the G7 and would be happy to host its members.

Aside from the United States, the G7 consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Britain. "We did not discuss a specific location but many countries offer their support, including Austria", Putin said.

Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program.

Mr. Peskov's comments come a day after Mr. Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of the world's leading nations, the G7, a step that would end Russia's global isolation over its 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Thanks to President Putin, bilateral ties have withstood the test of ever-changing worldwide situation, Xi said, noting the deepened political and strategic mutual trust, great progress in pragmatic cooperation in various fields, and the enhanced friendship between the two peoples.

Chinese leader Xi Jinping called for the Iran nuclear deal to be "earnestly" implemented as he met the country's president following the U.S. withdrawal from the pact, state media said Monday (Jun 11).

Trump suggested that Russian Federation be allowed back into the global group despite their continued occupation of Crimea.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met Saturday to discuss regional issues including both countries' involvement in the Syrian civil war and the U.S. withdrawal from a landmark nuclear deal with Iran.

"But I think this is a technicality", he said. Russian Federation was removed from the summit in 2014 when after it invaded Crimea over its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. I may have had a much different attitude, so you'd really have to ask that question of President Obama, you know - why did he do that? why did he do that?

He also reminisced to a Chinese broadcaster early this week about celebrating his birthday with Xi in 2013: "I won't hide it, we had a shot of vodka and sliced some sausage".

Trump on Friday suggested that Russian Federation should be reinstated to the group, telling reporters that his view "may not be politically correct" but "we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

"Russia is more often than not trying deliberately to be a strategic rival, to deliberately counter the good things we're trying to achieve in the world than for no other reason than to just counter them".

"Tomorrow we will hold the first summit of the SCO after its expansion and draw up a blueprint for its future growth", Xi said during Saturday's opening ceremony.

Putin said disagreements within the G7 should not be overestimated.

"Things happen", Putin added.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at a regional summit in China.
