Rouhani also had a bilateral meeting with Putin in Qingdao on Saturday and said more talks were needed between their two countries following Washington's "illegal" withdrawal, according to the Kremlin. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7.
He said a personal meeting with Trump would help both countries, whose relations have plunged to their lowest ebb in decades after a series of tit-for-tat sanctions and diplomatic expulsions.
The joint statement between the leaders of G7 nations comes after President Trump refused to back down from his decision to impose worldwide tariffs on goods, including steel and aluminum imports.
China and Russian Federation pledged to support each other on key global issues during a summit in Beijing on Friday, as the two sides hailed an "all-time high" in bilateral ties amid strained relations with the US. They should let Russian Federation come back in.
"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump said during an impromptu press conference at the summit.
"We did not (choose to) leave it, our colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to known reasons at some point".
I'll 'feel' if Kim Jong Un is serious at summit
In sum, it is far from clear that Pyongyang has really committed to anything like the American conception of denuclearisation. While the USA has not lifted any of its sanctions, Trump has said he will not add any new sanctions before the summit.
Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the USA over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.
The six remaining nations, he said, "represent values" and a "true worldwide market force".
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.
He said: "I've always said that our country must remain within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, but the sanctions are damaging us". We do know, however, that Trump sees no value in having a group of allies get together to discuss the challenges they face in the world today.
Russian President Vladimir Putin too sounded critical of the USA decision, saying the move may destabilise the Gulf region.
The agreement is based on greater intelligence sharing between the countries of the G7 group of industrialised nations - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the U.S. - and aims to identify, prevent and respond to hostile state activity including cyber-attacks.
President Donald Trump's trade adviser says: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".
