Rouhani criticises U.S. for 'imposing United States policies on rest of world'

Putin teases new arms Lasers & hypersonic missiles in service but ‘that’s not all

Though not officially on the agenda, analysts say that one key topic of discussion this year may focus on whether Iran will be allowed to ascend from its position as an SCO observer to become a full member state - a development it has sought since 2008 but has been unable to achieve while subject to United Nations sanctions.

The United States and Russia's relationship has remained a big part of Trump's presidency since the 2016 election. Trump criticizing the Group of Seven nations host and stepped back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting in Quebec.

Putin's remarks follow a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.

The point isn't that each of those deals was flawless, but to Trump they were disastrous primarily because they involved the United States joining with other countries in the hopes that everyone could emerge better off.

Moscow remains committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, addressing an extended session of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in China's Qingdao. "I think the G8 would be better".

The three countries are neighbors and traditional strategic partners to each other, and enjoy natural advantages and a good foundation for cooperation, he said.

"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".

Meanwhile, Putin and Trump have mentioned Vienna as a possible venue for their summit, but no decision has been made, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Qingdao yesterday.

China and Russian Federation already enjoy a relatively extensive economic dialogue, which has warmed in several areas since the crisis in Ukraine that contributed to Moscow's suspension from the G8.

"This medal of friendship represents the Chinese people's lofty respect for President Putin, and symbolizes the profound friendship between China and Russian Federation", he said.

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalization and strains on global multilateral economic institutions", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.

He also reminisced to a Chinese broadcaster early this week about celebrating his birthday with Xi in 2013: "I won't hide it, we had a shot of vodka and sliced some sausage". In 2017 Russian Federation announced it would permanently leave the group.

"For four years, we have been saying we will extend again if and when the Minsk agreements are respected", Macron said. Tensions mounted between the Trump administration and fellow G7 members Canada, Germany and France when the USA imposed steep tariffs on imported metals from the countries.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said.
