How can we have a meeting without Russian Federation?

Putin said that during his last telephone conversation with the USA president, Trump "expressed his concern about the threat of a new round of the arms race".

Speaking in La Malbaie, the small town in Quebec that hosted the weekend's summit, he said: "Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation in the meeting?"

Russian Federation was suspended from the group - then known as the G8 - in 2014 after the majority of member countries allied against its annexation of Crimea. The Shanghai organization, which Beijing began in 2001 as an alternative to USA -dominated diplomatic groups, includes China, Russia, India, Pakistan and the nations of Central Asia. Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who USA intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win. I have been Russia's worst nightmare.

The annual G-7 summit appeared to have weathered tensions over President Donald Trump's threats of a trade war.

Other world leaders like President Trần Đại Quang and Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc of Vietnam had also sent their congratulatory messages to their respective Russian counterparts where they highlighted the good relations between Vietnam and Russia and hoped that they would last for a long whole.

"Russia should be in this meeting, " Trump said.

Keep in mind that when it comes to US national security, no one objects to Trump's negotiating with Kim whose nuclear button is much smaller than America's.

Membership includes Canada, the U.S., UK, Italy, France, Japan and Germany.

China's "highest honor" is bestowed on foreigners who have made "outstanding contributions" to the country's modernization drive and helped maintain world peace, Xi said. The annexation of Crimea, alleged US election interference, the war in Syria and a poisoned spy in Britain are just a few of the storms surrounding the Kremlin before Putin officially declares the tournament open June 14.

"We can differently assess decisions that are taken by the United States, including by the U.S. president".

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov earlier told TASS that the Foreign Ministry was making comprehensive preparations for a meeting between the Russian and USA presidents. She said the two leaders exchanged pleasantries and briefly discussed trade.

Trump's remarks were the latest show of disunity between the USA and the other six nations meeting at a resort on the Saint Lawrence River this weekend.

"Trump's policies justified (the) growing closeness, especially for Russian Federation but also for China given the volatile relationship with the United States", Repnikova told AFP. He arrived behind schedule and planned an early leave from the G7 meeting Saturday morning for Singapore for his highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Kim has met Xi twice since Trump first agreed in March to attend the summit. Trump criticizing the Group of Seven nations host and stepped back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting in Quebec.

The French president did have some private time with Trump before the summit officially started.
