China hosts Russia, Iran for summit as USA tensions rise

Vladimir Putin

Speaking after the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on Sunday, Putin said: "Once again, nothing concrete was said".

Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation. The Skripals were in critical condition for weeks before recovering.

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.

President Donald Trump doubled down on his suggestion that Russian Federation be re-admitted into the G-7 in an impromptu presser on Saturday morning from the summit in Canada.

He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March.

President Donald Trump's call to bring Russian Federation back into a group of the world's major advanced economies drew opposition from both Democratic and Republican lawmakers who said Moscow shouldn't be rewarded for its bad - and unrepentant - behavior.

At the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit, Iran, Russia and Kazakhstan have vowed to uphold the deal.

Putin also said they discussed Iran but didn't provide details. According to White House statements, Trump last spoke to Putin on March 20.

Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who U.S. intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday he hoped Moscow's relations with Washington would improve, but that the ball was in the United States' court, the Interfax news agency reported.

Besides agreeing to further strengthen bilateral economic relations between the two neighbouring Islamic states, President Mamnoon Hussain and Iranian President Dr Hassan Rouhani said that the connectivity between Gwadar and Chabahar seaports would further deepen the economic ties between the two states.

He emphasized 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.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has held talks, face-to-face and by phone, with Putin in which he stressed that Jerusalem wants Iranian forces - including Hezbollah and other Shiite militias - entirely out of Syria, and not just the southwestern region closest to the Jewish state.

He emphasized the need for the group to closely follow the situation in Afghanistan to fend off the threats posed by militants in the country.

"In order for this to be discussed in detail, it is necessary that our foreign ministries, the experts work very closely with each other, and, of course, personal meetings are necessary", Putin said at a press conference on the results of his visit to China.

The Chinese president said Tehran and Beijing must boost cooperation at the United Nations, the SCO and the Confederation of International Contractors' Associations (CICA) in order to counter the USA unilateralism.
