“There have been no concrete agreements or understandings, and no specific discussions are being conducted now”, Peskov said. “Russia should be in this meeting”, Trump told reporters before leaving the White House South Lawn for Canada, where the summit is being held.
In late May, US President Donald Trump said that he had instructed the responsible bodies to study the possibility of imposition of new tariffs on automobile imports in the same manner as he did with respect to aluminum and steel duties.
“We have been a faithful player to this commitment, we’ve done our best, we’ve shown our good intentions”.
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Russian Federation not only seized Crimea, but hadn’t apologized for meddling in the 2016 USA election.
Moving onto tariffs, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced Trump’s plan to slap hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on key USA trading partners.
The leaders of China and Russia Sunday praised the expansion of their regional security bloc at a summit which put on a show of unity contrasting with the acrimonious G7 meeting.
With concerted efforts, cooperation between China and Russian Federation in various areas has maintained a strong momentum, and the integration of mutual interests has deepened constantly, Xi said.
The comment echoed that of Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, who on Friday said in a statement that Putin “chose to make Russian Federation unworthy of membership in the G8 by invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea”. “It’s time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues”.
Earlier Sunday, Putin criticized the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit. Russian Federation has announced cooperation projects with China including a new method of inter-bank transfers, and a joint credit agency that seeks to create a shared financial and economic infrastructure that will allow them to function independently of Western-dominated financial institutions.
Putin said the United State’s withdrawal could “destabilize the region” in the middle east according to the Associated Press and added Russian Federation will continue to honor the deal.
With the president of aspiring full member Iran looking on, Putin said Moscow still supports the Iran nuclear deal that Trump recently abandoned.
Putin also lambasted Trump’s decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, saying the decision could “destabilize the situation” in the region.
Touching on the close stance of Iran and Pakistan regarding the issues of the region and Islamic World, he said, “at regional and worldwide meetings, including the recent summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Iran and Pakistan have had close stances in condemning the relocation of USA embassy to the Holy Quds as well as the demonstrations in the two countries in support of Palestine on Quds Day”.
