Canada rejects Trump's bid to let Russian Federation back into G7

Russia's President Vladimir Putin looks on as China's President Xi Jinping points during Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China June 10, 2018.

Putin spoke Sunday at a gathering of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Qingdao, China.

Washington's relations with Moscow have been particularly strained in the wake of the 2016 US presidential election, which USA intelligence agencies said was targeted by Russian Federation.

At the G-7 gathering in Canada on Friday, Trump suggested that Russian Federation be offered a seat at the "negotiating table" of the organization, which was previously called the G-8 before Russian Federation was ousted for annexing Crimea in 2014. "Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow", Putin told reporters at a briefing in China's city of Qingdao.

Xi and Putin also vowed to make "all possible efforts" to preserve the 2015 global accord on Iran's nuclear programme that Trump abandoned last month.

He said he proposed eliminating all tariffs among the assembled nations, but also threatened to completely sever trade relations if he does not get his way.

Rouhani praised China and Russian Federation for their continued efforts to maintain the nuclear deal.

"For Putin, this is return on his investment, and it's safe to say that his investment has paid off beyond even his wildest dreams".

Xi placed the large golden medal around Putin's neck at the grandiose Great Hall of the People in Beijing in front of dignitaries from both countries.

Xi said the award is the highest state honor given to foreigners, awarded to those who have made outstanding contributions, "promoting exchange and cooperation between China and the world, and safeguarding world peace", as quoted by Xinhua.

A lot of Trump's actions deserve criticism, Putin said on Russian state TV.

During his Sunday remarks, Putin also addressed the situation in North Korea - two days ahead President Trump's planned sit-down with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.

The Iranian president further described Washington's recent decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear agreement as "a recent example of the United States' unilateralism and indifference towards the opinions of the worldwide community".

Vienna is one of the cities being considered as the venue for a possible summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Saturday.

SCO nations may discuss the potential of a joint free trade area, she said, as China also pushes for participation in its Belt and Road global infrastructure project.
