Putin says he’s ‘ready’ to return to G7 after Trump suggestion

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday said he was ready to meet his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump as soon as Washington was ready, adding Vienna could be a possible venue for such a summit.

Speaking to AFP in Lithuania's capital Vilnius, senior Iranian official Massoumeh Ebtekar said Iran hoped European powers, Russian Federation and China would confirm their willingness to uphold the deal "as soon as possible because Iran can not wait forever".

Mongolia stands ready to work with China and Russia to implement trilateral cooperation consensus and launch the China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor construction as early as possible, while promoting cooperation in sectors such as infrastructure and energy transportation, said Battulga.

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

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

While his administration has hit the country with sanctions over its "malign activity around the globe", Trump himself has appeared reluctant to punish Putin.

"We value the Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination", said Putin, adding that friendship between the heads of state and friendship between the two peoples are the solid foundation for the bilateral strategic cooperation.

Maria Repnikova, director of the Center for Global Information Studies at Georgia State University in the U.S., said China makes Russian Federation look "stronger and more relevant" on the global stage.

Russian President Vladimir Putin made a personal appeal for a meeting with Trump on Saturday.

Putin said in the interview that personal meetings are useful.

Under Trump, the United States has abandoned its traditional role in the G7.

However, the Kremlin acknowledged Saturday that President Vladimir Putin discussed during a visit to Austria earlier this week the possibility of Vienna playing host to a summit with his United States counterpart Donald Trump.

Now in the wake of the US withdrawal from the pact, "SCO members may use granting full membership to Iran as a way to demonstrate support for [Tehran] and the nuclear agreement", said Dawn Murphy, professor of global security studies at the US Air War College.

However, new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte threw his weight behind Trump's call for Russian Federation to be included, saying on Twitter it would be "in the interests of everyone".

No matter how worldwide situations change, China and Russian Federation always firmly support each other in defending their respective core interests, deepen cooperation in all areas, jointly and actively participate in global governance, and play a pivotal role in establishing a new type of worldwide relations and building a community with a shared future for humanity, Xi said in his talks with Putin.

"If I can get the president to actually realise that what he's doing is counterproductive for his own goals as well, perhaps we can move forward in a smarter way", Trudeau said.
