Dialogue with Trump could be 'constructive': Putin

At the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization this weekend, Messrs.

Vienna is one of the cities being considered as the venue for a possible summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Saturday.

Hours before he boarded Air Force One to fly to Quebec for the G7 meeting, U.S. President Donald Trump launched a series of fresh salvos at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and called on Russian Federation to be readmitted to the exclusive club of leading industrial nations. Trump, however, suggested that the G7 offer a seat at the table to Russian Federation.

Putin says "Russia welcomes the planned summit of the USA and North Korea and notes China's big contribution to helping settle the crisis on the Korean Peninsula".

The last meeting between Trump and Putin was a brief exchange in Vietnam last November.

"Russia should be in this meeting", Mr. Trump said.

"For Putin, this is return on his investment, and it's safe to say that his investment has paid off beyond even his wildest dreams". "And if it's not fixed, then we're not going to deal with these countries".

Former Vice President Joe Biden took to Twitter on Friday to air his frustration with President Donald Trump's latest overture to Russian Federation.

During that same call, which came shorty after Putin's latest election victory, Trump was given explicit instructions in his daily briefing materials to avoid congratulating his counterpart.

Putin also hit Trump on Sunday for his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year.

Putin said Iran has cooperated well in the SCO as an observer and that Russian Federation supports Iran's full membership to the organization.

"As soon as the USA side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule".

Professor Zhu Feng, director of Nanjing University's Institute of International Studies, also said the award was a clear signal to the U.S. that if it increased pressure on both countries, it would mean both China and Russian Federation would have no choice but to increase cooperation so they can jointly deal with Washington.

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

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Tehran would not abandon the JCPOA and would continue to comply with its obligations.

Hussain said that China is a reliable friend and steady partner of Pakistan, and relations between the two countries are unshakable.

His comments ahead of the G7 summit prompted fresh criticism from some USA lawmakers.

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