We Agreed on Fostering Greater Economic Partnership With China - Putin

We Agreed on Fostering Greater Economic Partnership With China - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday said he was ready to meet his United States counterpart Donald Trump as soon as Washington was ready, adding Vienna could be a possible venue for such a summit.

Mr Putin arrived for a three-day state visit during which he will attend the Qingdao Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation on the weekend.

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

Putin also welcomed Trump's statement that Russian Federation should be invited to rejoin the group that was called the G8 before others expelled Russian Federation. "Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow", Putin told reporters at a briefing in China's city of Qingdao.

Just yesterday Trump said Russian Federation should be attending a Group of Seven summit in Canada, a controversial idea that even Moscow seemed to reject.

"It is the highest-level, most profound and strategically most significant relationship between major countries in the world", said Mr Xi.

He adds Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

In his interview to state-run CGTN, Putin described Xi as "approachable and sincere" and "a very dependable man to work with". The addition of South Asian rivals India and Pakistan have also raised questions about the group's long-term cohesiveness.

Mercedes delay engine upgrade due to 'quality issue'
Bottas played down the delay to the new engine, saying it would have been only "a small gain compared to the old one" anyway. Mercedes engines are used not only by the factory race team, but also by the Force India and Williams teams.

Before departing for the 44th G7 summit, which is being held in Quebec, Canada, American President Donald Trump called for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping.

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

In one of today's postings, Trump says he is heading to Canada for G7 talks that will mostly centre on the longtime, unfair trade practices aimed at the United States.

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalization and strains on global multilateral economic institutions", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.

Vienna has been discussed as a possible venue for a summit between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, the Kremlin said Saturday.

It can only be conferred on a foreigner who has made outstanding contributions in promoting exchange and cooperation between China and the world, and in maintaining world peace.

Battulga said that it is Mongolia's top priority to develop friendly cooperation with the two permanent neighbors of China and Russian Federation.

President Mamnoon Hussain and his Iran counterpart Hassan Rouhani agreed to bolster economic ties between the countries in a meeting held on Saturday in Qingdao, China.
