Russian President Putin Confirms He Wants To Meet With Pres

Later in the day, Presidents Xi and Putin joined other ministers of state from both countries to watch a friendly hockey match between the Chinese and Russian national teams.

"The very fact that we confirm the high level of our interaction and talk about the need for its development, in my opinion, is of great importance, for contemporary global relations, for Russian-Chinese relations", he said. "We are facing a very volatile region", she said. "I think the ball is in the Americans' court", Putin was quoted as saying by Interfax.

China is ready to work with Russian Federation and make unremitting efforts to consolidate high-level mutual trust, expand cooperation in all areas, deepen people-to-people exchanges and mutual learning, enhance global coordination and cooperation, pass down the concept of everlasting friendship from generation to generation, continuously enrich the meaning of the two countries' strategy of coordination, and carry forward and renew bilateral ties day by day, so as to benefit the two peoples, Xi said.

He said he did not discuss a possible meeting venue with Trump but "many" countries including Austria were keen to help in organising such a summit. "The ball, I believe ..."

Putin said he shares Trump's expression of concern about a renewed arms race expressed in a March phone call.

It also said the countries shared and agreed with Britain's assessment that it is "highly likely" that Russia was responsible for the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain.

During a press conference in Qingdao, China on Sunday Vladimir Putin said that Russian Federation has not left G-7 - the claim is false.

Speaking about the Skripal case, discussed at G7 summit, Putin noted, that "nothing new" was said on the matter, stressing that "it is necessary to stop chatter and move on to cooperation".

Rouhani hailed as constructive and important Moscow's role in implementing the nuclear deal.

SCO states also include four ex-Soviet central Asian republics and new members Pakistan and India.

Now in the wake of the US withdrawal from the pact, "SCO members may use granting full membership to Iran as a way to demonstrate support for [Tehran] and the nuclear agreement", said Dawn Murphy, professor of worldwide security studies at the US Air War College.

Putin meanwhile said Russian Federation would work with China on the North Korean nuclear issue, ahead of the highly anticipated meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

China is mired in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, while Moscow has deep differences with Washington on multiple diplomatic fronts, including Syria and Ukraine.

U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement last month, calling it deeply flawed, and European states have since been scrambling to ensure Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal.
