Vladimir Putin dismisses G7 criticism of Russia as ‘babbling’

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

QINGDAO, China-China's President Xi Jinping warned against unilateralism and trade protectionism as he, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Central Asian leaders used a regional meeting to criticize US policy.

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

Putin's remarks followed a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.

Adding an extra layer of friction to the gathering, Trump suggested that Russian Federation - which was expelled following the annexation of Crimea - should be allowed to rejoin the group.

Trump has repeatedly put himself at odds with practically the entire United States political and security establishment over Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Speaking at the start of his meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the summit, Rouhani hailed close Iran-Russia ties. "This reiteration [of cooperation] is very important", Putin said regarding the results of his visit to China. He added that Russian Federation would seek to maintain the agreement despite United States plans to resume sanctions against Iran.

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

"China is willing to work with Russian Federation and other countries to preserve the JCPOA", Xi said.

Lava destroys 600 homes on Hawaii's Big Island - mayor
Kilauea is one of five volcanoes on the Big Island and is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, according to the ESA. Most recently, a huge river of lava has engulfed two entire seaside subdivisions - Vacationland and Kapoho Beach Lots.

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.

Putin echoed the Iranian leader in saying that their joint regional alliance will go on, particularly in Syria, Fars reported.

No matter how worldwide situations change, China and Russian Federation always firmly support each other in defending their respective core interests, deepen cooperation in all areas, jointly and actively participate in global governance, and play a pivotal role in establishing a new type of worldwide relations and building a community with a shared future for humanity, Xi said.

Trump's rejection of the global climate accord and Iran nuclear deal, supported by the European Union and Canada is going to be another flashpoint in the increasingly acrimonious relationship between Washington and its Western allies.

Last month, US President Donald Trump announced Washington's pullout from the JCPOA, vowing to reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

During the meeting, President Mamnoon expressed the hope that all parties of the Iran nuclear deal would continue to implement the agreement and uphold their commitments.

"We just had some vodka together and carved some sausage", he recalled, adding: "I have never had such a relationship or arrangement with any other foreign colleague".
