Putin gets some love from Xi and Trump

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin have meet prior to the official opening of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Qingdao to sign a series of bilateral agreements, while overseeing a number of further agreements signed between representatives of both the private and public sectors from the neighbouring superpowers.

Putin, speaking to reporters in Qingdao, China, where he attended a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, says Trump has voiced concern about a renewed arms race.

"Trump fulfils his pre-election promises", he said.

Vienna is one of the cities being considered as the venue for a possible summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Saturday.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for the official welcoming ceremony the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

"Everyone demonstrated solidarity with London over a certain event in Salisbury but nothing concrete was said again", Putin said.

In late May, US President Donald Trump said that he had instructed the responsible bodies to study the possibility of imposition of new tariffs on automobile imports in the same manner as he did with respect to aluminum and steel duties.

Russian President Vladimir Putin made a personal appeal for a meeting with Trump on Saturday. "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

Some reports indicated that Trump was looking to pull out altogether, while Trump spent Friday morning tweeting about how "unfair" the current trade deals were.

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. "As soon as the United States side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule".

In his meeting with Putin, Rouhani said a "more serious and important" dialogue between Russian Federation and Iran was needed regarding the nuclear deal following Washington's "illegal" withdrawal from the pact, according to a Kremlin transcript. "The only question is: Will the domestic political situation in the United States allow this to be done?" And Trudeau said: "We are going to defend our industries and our workers".

Earlier on Sunday, Putin criticised the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit.

The meeting comes after US President Donald Trump controversially pulled Washington out of the 2015 worldwide pact with Iran that placed limits on its nuclear program in return for easing economic sanctions.
