Putin ready to meet Trump over arms race concerns

The G-7 ended in unprecedented nastiness with Trump, who had left early, blasting Trudeau as "very dishonest & weak" and instructing his representatives not to sign the joint communique. The group used to be called G8 before Russia's membership was suspended in 2014 after the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis.

The statement made no mention of US President Donald Trump's insistence that the G7 would be better off if it brought Russian Federation back into the fold despite its expulsion in response to its 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based SCO has largely served as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.

Putin said Sunday that the current structure of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization is "optimal" and emphasized its combined economic power and political clout.

The comments at the summit, where the leaders of China and Russian Federation were present, came on the same day that Iran's parliamentary speaker, Ali Larijani, said that it is time for Europe to show it can save the nuclear deal.

Responding to Trump's comments, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would be happy to meet Trump once Washington is ready to hold a summit and welcomed the United States president's call to bring Russia back into the G7 group of leading industrialised nations.

The comments come after Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted into the G-7 summit, a meeting of seven countries with major economies.

Putin's remarks follow a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.

Iranian President Rouhani also met Vladimir Putin in a bilateral meeting on Saturday in Qingdao.

France and Germany have criticized President Donald Trump for threatening to pull the United States out of a joint statement with key G7 allies.

Speaking during a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Qingdao, Putin emphasized that the bloc members are anxious about the USA move.

The addition of South Asian rivals India and Pakistan have also raised questions about the group's long-term cohesiveness.

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.

US President Donald Trump last month announced that the US was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal signed by the Obama administration in 2015 under which Tehran had agreed to limit its nuclear activities and allow in global inspectors in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

"Indeed, we are one hundred percent determined to continue cooperation between China and the European Union, but I can add also with Russian Federation as it belongs to the signatory countries, but also with other partners internationally who are committed to preserve the nuclear deal and its full implementation", the senior EU official said.
