Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who U.S. intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

Commenting on the G-7's statement, Putin said: "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues". The Kremlin has complained that efforts to organize the meeting seem frozen.

Both Trump and Conte were clear that they want Russian Federation to be readmitted to the Group, despite Moscow's refusal to withdraw its occupation forces from Crimea - which it forcibly annexed from Ukraine in 2014 - and eastern Ukraine, where Russia's armed forces and their local proxies continue to fight a war that has killed almost 11,000 people in just over four years.

Putin said the bloc's new counterterrorism agreement foresees joint drills, exchanging information and conducting coordinated anti-terror action. The group used to be called G8 before Russia's membership was suspended in 2014 after the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis.

Xi also hailed the entry of new members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, calling the presence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain "of great historic significance" in opening remarks at the weekend summit in the northern Chinese port of Qingdao.

In a new television feature introduced in Russia this year, called "Direct Line", bloggers and vloggers are allowed to ask questions to the Russian President on behalf of their followers. The G-7 ended in unprecedented nastiness with Trump, who had left early, blasting Trudeau as "very dishonest & weak" and instructing his representatives not to sign the joint communique.

"Iran has always stood by the nation of Afghanistan over the past four decades and as two neighbouring and brotherly states, the two sides have significant cultural, security and trade commonalities", he was quoted as saying in a report by the President's Website. The US president noted that he would recommend the G7 leaders to readmit Russian Federation.

But the investigation said she didn't follow up after she continued to experience problems and never accessed the system again. They were a willful neglect of her very important duty to run background checks to ensure public safety.

In reaching out to the Christian right in the U.S., President Trump is forgetting that being part of the G-7 is also being neighborly.

Putin noted that Russian Federation and China have emphasized the need for talks to reduce tensions.

Putin came to China on June 8, where his met his counterpart Xi Jingping and later took part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation SCO summit.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, whose country has observer status at the SCO, attended the summit, making his first foreign trip since the US's decision.

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

Xi Jinping said the Iran nuclear deal is "conducive to safeguarding peace and stability in the Middle East and the global non-proliferation regime, and should continue to be implemented earnestly".
