As G7 summit begins Russia's Putin meet China's Xi

On the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in the coastal Chinese city of Qingdao, Russian President Vladimir Putin met his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani and expressed his support for Tehran joining the SCO.

Speaking about the Skripal case, discussed at G7 summit, Putin noted, that "nothing new" was said on the matter, stressing that "it is necessary to stop chatter and move on to cooperation".

The Iranian president said his country was ready to cooperate with the SCO against terrorism, extremism and separatism.

Adding an extra layer of friction to the gathering, Trump suggested that Russian Federation - which was expelled following the annexation of Crimea - should be allowed to rejoin the group. Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who US intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

Putin says "Russia welcomes the planned summit of the USA and North Korea and notes China's big contribution to helping settle the crisis on the Korean Peninsula".

He emphasised that the bloc's members, who also include China, four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan, are anxious about the USA move.

On May 8, Trump officially withdrew the USA from the UN-endorsed nuclear agreement and plans to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

The Russia-China relations are at their best level in history and have set a good example for state-to-state relations in the present world, which has played an important role in safeguarding global peace, security and stability, Putin said.


Trump reiterated his belief that he has been tough on Russian Federation, before calling for President Vladimir Putin to be given a seat at the table with the small group of influential world leaders.

"The China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperation is not only the shared asset of the two countries but also offers a model for building a new type of worldwide relations", Xi said.

The United States and Russia's relationship has remained a big part of Trump's presidency since the 2016 election. The bloc includes China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan.

Putin added that Russian Federation is ready "to boost, deepen and improve relations with the U.S".

Since U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States last month, calling the agreement deeply flawed, European states have been scrambling to ensure Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal.

"We are ready for this", he said.

Trump announced the US would leave what he called the "horrible" Iran nuclear accord in May.

Donald Trumps's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal also demonstrated his reluctance to toe the line of his allies.
