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

As G7 feuds, Xi and Putin play up their own club

"Our countries are definitely concerned about the current situation regarding the Iranian nuclear program", the Russian leader pointed out, adding that "the United States withdrawal from the JCPOA may destabilize the situation".

The SCO meets this year after 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.

Italy's new prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, seconded Trump's idea.

During the meeting, President Mamnoon said connectivity between Gwadar and Chabahar ports will further strengthen Pak-Iran relations.

On Friday, Putin said both nations "are interested in establishing peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula".

Putin also dismissed as mere "chatter" a G7 statement that criticized Russian Federation.

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

Reports said the Kremlin has reached out to Austria about hosting a meeting between Trump and Putin sometime this summer.

"Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation?"

Mr. Putins' comments Sunday came as the G-7 summit wrapped up in Canada with President Trump refusing to sign the joint communiqué, Trump suggesting Russian Federation rejoin the G-7 and the US presidential openly feuding with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"Both share scepticism towards American hegemony and distrust U.S. intentions, both are authoritarian personalistic rulers", he said.

SCO states also include four ex-Soviet central Asian republics and new members Pakistan and India.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he is looking forward to improving ties with the US, according to a report by Tass.

With the president of aspiring full member Iran looking on, Putin said Moscow still supports the Iran nuclear deal that Trump recently abandoned.

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. "For the president the United States to suggest that all is forgotten, that that doesn't matter, that we are fine with one country annexing another country's sovereign territory, and we should just welcome them with open arms back into a community of democracies, is outrageous".

"The relationship between Russian Federation and China is a friendly, neighborly one, developing.in the spirit of overarching strategic partnership", he said.

Putin also criticized Trump's decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal, saying the withdrawal could "destabilize the situation" in the Middle East.

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

Both leaders also issued a joint declaration pledging to preserve the worldwide accord on Iran's nuclear programme which the U.S. withdrew from last month.
