China hosts Russia, Iran for summit as USA tensions rise

Vladimir Putin

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Mr. Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and USA leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna.

But Trump on Friday called on world leaders to allow Russian Federation back into the G7, the group of leading industrialized democracies.

"The U.S. president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting", he said.

"I hope that it will happen, at least we are ready for that and I think that the ball is in the USA court", the Russian president said.

"The U.S. efforts to impose its policies on others are expanding as a threat to all", Rouhani told the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), a regional security grouping led by China and Russian Federation where Iran has observer status.

Lawmakers in the United States have condemned Trump's comments, which some have taken as the latest example of the US President's failure to condemn Russian Federation for its interference in the 2016 election.

"It wasn't us who left", he said. "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", the USA leader said before boarding the presidential jet. "And in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out; they should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table".

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.

"I would like to add that the Syrian government now has control over the territory where 90 percent of the population live. Coordinated efforts of Russian Federation, the Syrian government, Iran, Turkey, and a number of other partners, including Kazakhstan, have contributed significantly to the defeat of terrorist activities in (Syria)", Putin said.

"I fully agree with him", he said, adding that personal meetings and work by experts are needed to tackle the issue. "I think it would be good for the world".

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity and he won't have that opportunity again", Trump said.

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.

Putin thanked Xi for the gift saying, he values the Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination.

Last month, Trump pulled out of former U.S. President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.
