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

Howard TerryJun 11, 2018

"I believe it's necessary to stop this creative babbling and shift to concrete issues related to real cooperation", Putin told reporters in the Chinese city of Qingdao, when asked to comment on a G7 joint statement.

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and U.S. leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna.

"The president of the United States himself has repeatedly said that he considered such a meeting appropriate, and I confirm that this is indeed the case".

Speaking at an global summit in the Chinese city of Qingdao on Sunday, Rouhani said the US' withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal poses a potential threat to the world.

Both leaders also issued a joint declaration pledging to preserve the worldwide accord on Iran's nuclear programme which the USA withdrew from last month.

Maria Repnikova, director of the Center for Global Information Studies at Georgia State University in the U.S., said China makes Russian Federation look "stronger and more relevant" on the global stage.

"Both countries really use their relationship to showcase. there is an alternative to the American hegemony and they've been doing that for a while even before Trump", she said.

On May 8, Trump announced Washington's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

The English-language Twitter of account of the Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper posted photos of a tense scene in La Malbaie, Quebec, and another of Xi and Putin smiling, with the caption, "G7 vs SCO: two meetings on the same day".

Chinese premier Xi Jinping has awarded his country's Friendship Award to Vladimir Putin, calling the Russian president his "best, most intimate friend".

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 U.S. move. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told Trump the organization is not "remotely" considering adding Russian Federation.

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.

In the USA, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in a bid to sway the 2016 presidential election in his favour.

Mr Xi told media after their meeting that both he and his Russian counterpart felt "the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership is mature, firm and stable".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned about the threat U-S unilateralism poses to the world.
