Trump blasts Canada, calls for Russian Federation to be returned to G8

Oleg Sentsov stands behind bars as his verdict is read at a court in Rostov-on-Don Russia in August 2015

If we are to take his statement at face value, that "we have a world to run" and Russian Federation is an important economic actor, then it would make sense for China to be part of the group.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.

"Now all these loading and unloading operations of military equipment and personnel are no longer needed".

Russian Federation agreed to strengthen trilateral cooperation in transport, infrastructure, customs and tourism, and facilitate trade and personnel exchanges, said Putin.

"Trump's policies justified [the] growing closeness, especially for Russian Federation but also for China, given the volatile relationship with the U.S.", Ms. Repnikova told AFP. "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.

'It wasn't us who left, ' he said.

China and Russian Federation lead the regional security group, which include former Soviet states, and new members such as India and Pakistan.

Putin is in Beijing for a state visit, during which he will attend a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

He referred to a meeting of President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday, saying "we positively view the intentions of Pyongyang, Seoul and Washington to reach a comprehensive settlement of the crisis through talks".

Russia's membership in the G8 was suspended in 2014, after it illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

Amid news that President Donald Trump wanted to include Russian Federation in June's G7 summit, former National Security Advisor Tom Donilon went on CNN and suggested that Trump was trying to act as the "chief advocate" for Russian Federation.

The most powerful Russian and Chinese leaders in decades, Putin and Xi have forged closer ties as Trump has labeled both countries economic rivals that challenge USA interests and values. They include China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan.

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.

Rouhani said the USA was monitoring the global reaction to its withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and a weak response would encourage it to carry on acting unilaterally.

Rouhani hailed as constructive and important Moscow's role in implementing the nuclear deal.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, whose country is an observer member, also attended the meeting as he seeks Chinese and Russian support following the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

"Trump said he was attending the G7 summit to "[straighten] out unfair Trade Deals" with Canada, France and other close USA allies, he tweeted early Friday.
