Rouhani criticises USA for 'imposing U.S. policies on rest of world'

Putin teases new arms Lasers & hypersonic missiles in service but ‘that’s not all

US-Russian relations have been hit by years of disagreement over the Syrian conflict, Russia's annexation of Crimea and its involvement in eastern Ukraine. And Trudeau said: "We are going to defend our industries and our workers".

"As for Russia's return to "the seven, ' 'the eight" [G7, G8] - we have not left it".

Speaking to reporters in Qingdao, China, Putin said that some nations, including Austria, have offered to host his summit with Trump, should they have one.

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

"And in the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out - they should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table", Trump added.

The Friendship Medal of the People's Republic of China was presented to Mr Putin personally by Chinese President Xi Jinping in a grand ceremony held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Friday (June 8).

The French and Canadian leaders have each vowed to address the tariffs with Trump at the summit.

And as if to add another irritant, Trump called for Russian Federation to be brought back into G7 and resurrect the G8 format, from which the Kremlin was expelled following Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its meddling in eastern Ukraine.

Host Nation India Focuses On 'Beat Plastic Pollution' Theme
He also told us that plastic waste is finding its way into the foods we eat because the waste is being consumed by livestock. Associate Environment Minister Eugenie Sage said the commitment is a significant step towards helping end plastic pollution.

Critics said the growing United States isolation is risky at a time when Trump is making diplomatic overtures with North Korea and in the Middle East and could use the support of allies. Some reports indicated that Trump was looking to pull out altogether, while Trump spent Friday morning tweeting about how "unfair" the current trade deals were.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday that he'd be happy to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump whenever Washington is ready for such a summit.

China and Russian Federation are now holding a security summit in the Chinese city of Qingdao.

Xi, whose government is locked in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, said World Trade Organisation rules and the multilateral trading system should be upheld to build an open world economy.

However, new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte threw his weight behind Trump's call for Russian Federation to be included, saying on Twitter it would be "in the interests of everyone".

The suspension was supported by the other members of the group, including the US, Canada, Japan and four European nations.

"It will take some time before the signing of the agreement itself, this should be done properly, but this is the first very serious step towards organizing a serious regional economic union", Putin said, adding that "This is certainly compatible with both the Eurasian Economic Union and with the Chinese Silk Road initiative in its economic dimension".
