We Agreed on Fostering Greater Economic Partnership With China - Putin

We Agreed on Fostering Greater Economic Partnership With China - Putin

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.

Russian Federation has not asked to rejoin the group of the world's leading economies and is perfectly happy working with the larger G20, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday, June 9, a day after US President Donald Trump called for Russia's return.

President Mamnoon Hussain and his Iran counterpart Hassan Rouhani agreed to bolster economic ties between the countries in a meeting held on Saturday in Qingdao, China.

"As soon as the American side is ready this meeting would take place depending on my working schedule of course", Putin told reporters in the Chinese city of Qingdao.

Putin (L) and Chinese President Xi Jinping (R) exchange documents during a signing ceremony inside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on June 8.

"Whether you like it or, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run and in the G7, which used to be the G8 they threw Russian Federation out, they should let Russian Federation come back in".

Britain blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning of the Skripals with a nerve agent in March in the British city of Salisbury, the accusations Moscow has vehemently denied.

"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". It was the first violation of a European country's borders since World War II.

"It is the highest-level, most profound and strategically most significant relationship between major countries in the world", said Mr Xi.

The leaders of China and Russia Sunday praised the expansion of their regional security bloc at a summit which put on a show of unity contrasting with the acrimonious G7 meeting. Its trade ties with Russian Federation are worth several tens of billions of euros each year, while several leading figures in both the Five Star Movement (M5S) and the League, the two populist parties that make up the coalition government, have expressed personal admiration for President Vladimir Putin.

"I see this as an acknowledgement and an evaluation of Russia's efforts to develop a comprehensive strategic partnership with China", he said.

Because of these issues and Trump's uncompromising attitude (he did not stay until the end of the meeting and left early for his summit with Kim Jung Un), an agreement could not be reached in Canada. The group disagreed with The President on climate change, trade and the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Xi and Putin also vowed to make "all possible efforts" to preserve the 2015 worldwide accord on Iran's nuclear programme that Trump abandoned last month.
