  • Donald Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping

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

"I hope (an improvement in ties) also takes place".

"We are ready for this", he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told Trump that readmitting Russian Federation "is not something that we are even remotely looking at at this time".

"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.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday hit back at Trump over trade policy and other matters on which the president with other G-7 nations, saying in a Twitter that "maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be".

Putin emphasized the significance of the SCO, which includes Russian Federation and China, and said the combined purchasing power of the SCO was bigger than G7.

Notably, Vladimir Putin's personal frustration with the Group had been reported long before the 2014 suspension - the Russian President skipped the world leaders meeting in Camp David, the US presidential retreat near Washington, DC, in May 2012, and Putin's "loneliness" was a trending world headline during the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland in 2013.

Putin said he shares Trump's expression of concern about a renewed arms race expressed in a March phone call.

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

During a press conference in Qingdao, China on Sunday Vladimir Putin said that Russian Federation has not left G-7 - the claim is false.

Its member states also include four former Soviet Central Asian republics, Pakistan and India.

Putin said that Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilise the situation" in the region. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Tehran would not abandon the JCPOA and would continue to comply with its obligations.

China is mired in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, while Moscow has deep differences with Washington on multiple diplomatic fronts, including Syria and Ukraine.

After the USA withdrawal, Iran wants assurances from the remaining parties that its interests are guaranteed or it will resume nuclear activities with a higher speed.

Trump pulled out of the 2015 Obama-era accord last month, despite objections from European allies and other nations.

Russian Federation did not choose to leave the G7 and would be happy to host its members in Moscow, President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday when asked about U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation should have been at its latest meeting.
