Russia's Putin would be ready to host G7 in Moscow

Russia's Putin would be ready to host G7 in Moscow

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after his talks with Putin on Tuesday.

Stressing that Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination remains Russia's diplomatic priority, Putin said the two countries have taken care of each other's core interests and major concerns, actively promoted dialogues and cooperation in political, economic and people-to-people and cultural areas, and worked closely in worldwide affairs.

"I agree with him, and to have a meaningful discussion, our ministries of foreign affairs and experts should get involved and work closely together, and of course a meeting in person is necessary", Putin said.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump said Saturday before he left the gathering to travel to Singapore.

Hours before he boarded Air Force One to fly to Quebec for the G7 meeting, U.S. President Donald Trump launched a series of fresh salvos at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and called on Russian Federation to be readmitted to the exclusive club of leading industrial nations.

The SCO was created in 2001 by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Russia, Tajikstan and Uzbekistan.

"It wasn't us who left", he said. "They should let Russian Federation come back in, because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday opened a regional security summit attended by Russian Federation and Iran with boasts of the bloc's "unity", just as a fractious G7 gathering was mired in divisions between Europe and the US.

"We are ready for this", he said.

Putin told reporters in Qingdao, China, that the group's statement that accused Russia of destabilizing actions was based on a "shaky" foundation, as were allegations of Russian involvement in the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

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. "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".

Earlier on Sunday, Putin criticised the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit.

India and Pakistan are also members.

Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the U.S. over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal. He added that Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Last month, US President Donald Trump announced Washington's pullout from the JCPOA, vowing to reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

The other parties to the nuclear deal - Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China, along with Iran - have all said they want to keep the agreement going.
