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

Russian Federation has not asked to rejoin the group of the world's leading economies and is perfectly happy working with the larger G20, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday, June 9, a day after US President Donald Trump called for Russia's return.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he is looking forward to improving ties with the USA, according to a report by Tass.

"As soon as the American side is ready this meeting would take place depending on my working schedule of course".

The meeting was held ahead of the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, a regional security grouping jointly led by Beijing and Moscow, in the coastal city of Qingdao over the weekend.

Putin added that although he met with President Trump at various worldwide venues, they never got an opportunity to discuss Russian-U.S. relations.

Trump adviser says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back' at G7 summit
Trudeau argued that Trump is making a strategist mistake by placing tariffs on Canadian steel. Some believe it's not something that can lose its value just because of a couple of tweets.

Thanks to President Putin, bilateral ties have withstood the test of ever-changing worldwide situation, Xi said, noting the deepened political and strategic mutual trust, great progress in pragmatic cooperation in various fields, and the enhanced friendship between the two peoples. "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", the USA leader said before boarding the presidential jet. Leaders of Italy's new populist government are known to have cultivated friendly ties to Moscow and have been vocal critics of sanctions on Russian Federation. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7. "Coordinated efforts of Russian Federation, the Syrian government, Iran, Turkey, and a number of other partners, including Kazakhstan, have contributed significantly to the defeat of terrorist activities in (Syria)", Putin said.

Putin also praised joint efforts for peace in the world and affirmed that on the major issues of security, China and Russian Federation stand united.

But a time and date for a meeting have not been agreed, spokesman says. "As long as the terrorists are active, the region will not achieve its development goals", said Rouhani, adding, "fighting terrorism requires full cooperation and coordination among all countries of the region". He added that Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

It was always an awkward fit, however, not just because of the rampant corruption in post-Soviet Russia and the fact that unlike the other democracies it has been ruled by a strongman for the past 18 years, but also because Russia is neither an ally of the other countries nor an important economic power.

US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the 2015 global pact with Iran that placed limits on its nuclear programme in return for the easing of economic sanctions.
