Chinese, Russian Presidents Lead U.S. Criticism at Regional Summit

Chinese, Russian Presidents Lead U.S. Criticism at Regional Summit

All questions of a possible summit between the two leaders were also pushed aside with President Putin giving an answer that as beneficial as it might prove to be, the current domestic political situation in the U.S. stood as a huge barrier between mutual positive communication.

Trump on Saturday withdrew support for a joint statement issued by the other G-7 nations ― Canada, the U.K. Germany, France, Italy and Japan ― just hours after expressing support for it.

The leader of the largest coalition partner in Italy's new Eurosceptic government, 5-Star Movement head and newly-named Industry and Labour Minister, Luigi Di Maio, insisted that the West's sanctions on Russian Federation are harmful to Italy's economy, adding, "I have always said that our country must remain in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation but that the sanctions on Russian Federation damage us", adding that "we are pro-Italian, not pro-Russia".

Trump announced the US would leave what he called the "horrible" Iran nuclear accord in May.

Putin said: 'The US president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting.

Before departing for the G7 summit in Charlevoix, Que., the U.S., Trump called on the G7 leaders to let Russian Federation back in.

Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the United States over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

The leaders of China and Russia Sunday praised the expansion of their regional security bloc at a summit which put on a show of unity contrasting with the acrimonious G7 meeting.

China's President Xi Jinping and Russia's President Vladimir Putin shake hands during Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China Sunday.

"As soon as the American side is ready this meeting would take place depending on my working schedule of course", Putin told reporters in the Chinese city of Qingdao.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!", the president posted on Twitter.

The United States and Russia's relationship has remained a big part of Trump's presidency since the 2016 election.

"This used to be the G8 because Russian Federation was in it, and now Russia's not in it", Trump said outside the White House.

"We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow", he added. "Back in the day, colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to certain reasons".

"President Putin is the leader of a great country, and is influential around the world", Xi said.

"Things happen", Putin added.

Mr Xi told media after their meeting that both he and his Russian counterpart felt "the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership is mature, firm and stable".
