Russian Federation calls for strict implementation of JCPOA on Iran - Putin

Jailed Ukranian Filmmaker Ready To Starve Till Death In Russia During World Cup

Russia's President Vladimir Putin looks on as China's President Xi Jinping points during Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China June 10, 2018.

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

"We think North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time", President Trump said at a press conference at the G7 meeting in Canada on Saturday.

Both the leaders are participating at the 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Heads of State meeting, which got under way today and is being attended by India, Russia along with other allies.

He said that several countries, including Austria, have offered to host a Trump-Putin meeting.

Before departing the White House for the G-7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, early Friday morning, Trump told reporters that he believed Russian Federation should be readmitted to the group.

'Once again, nothing concrete was said, ' Putin said, referring to the G7 statement.

Washington's relations with Moscow have been particularly strained in the wake of the 2016 USA presidential election, which US intelligence agencies said was targeted by Russian Federation.

Wang Huning read out the order of award, which is conferred to recognize Putin's long-time devotion and important contribution to good neighborliness and friendship between Russian Federation and China, and to the development of the comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination.

Rouhani noted that Moscow can play an important role in preserving the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, after the U.S.

It's far from certain that today's Xi-Putin jewelry exchange had any impact on Trump's call for Russian Federation to rejoin the G7. "I fully agree with him", he said, adding that personal meetings and work by experts are needed to tackle the issue.

On May 8, Trump officially withdrew the US from the UN-endorsed nuclear agreement and plans to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based SCO has largely served as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.

While never mentioning the United States by name, he added: "We should reject the Cold War mentality and confrontation between blocs, and oppose the practice of seeking absolute security of oneself at the expense of others, so as to obtain security of all".

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

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

But no disharmony was evident during the 2-day summit in Qingdao.

Mr Trump announced back in March that he and Mr Putin planned to meet soon but since then relations between Washington and Moscow have since deteriorated over the conflict in Syria and the Salisbury spy poisoning scandal.
