Putin Hits Trump for Leaving Iran Nuclear Deal

Putin Hits Trump for Leaving Iran Nuclear Deal

Despite this, Putin also said Sunday he's ready to meet with Trump, "as soon as the USA side is ready".

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

I can reiterate that in our last telephone conversation he expressed his concern about the threat of a new round of the arms race.

"We think North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time", President Trump said at a press conference at the G7 meeting in Canada on Saturday.

China has been the first trade partner of Iran over the past years, he said, adding that enhanced banking cooperation would support the implementation of bilateral agreements.

Mr Putin offered to host the next summit after his USA counterpart Donald Trump suggested Russian Federation should have been at the Quebec gathering which came to an acrimonious end last night.

"The US president himself repeatedly said that he would consider such a meeting helpful". "Russia calls for strict and consistent implementation of this plan", Putin stated.

"We should reject self-centered, shortsighted and closed-door policies", said Xi, whose own country has been accused of restricting broad access for foreign firms to its huge market.

He added: 'We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow'.

China and Russian Federation pledged to support each other on key global issues during a summit in Beijing on Friday, as the two sides hailed an "all-time high" in bilateral ties amid strained relations with the US.

While the suggestion is likely to draw the ire of the Western political establishment, the recently installed Italian prime minister was quick to endorse Trump's suggestion.

Putin also dismissed as mere "chatter" a G7 statement that criticized Russian Federation. Such relations have contributed to the building of a new type of worldwide relations and a community with shared future for humanity, Xi said.

"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".

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".

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

China and Russian Federation lead the regional security group, which includes former Soviet states and new members India and Pakistan.

"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.
