Vienna possible venue for Putin-Trump summit

Russian President Vladimir Putin meets with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the SCO Summit in Qingdao

His comments stood in marked contrast to remarks that Trump made during the summit of the Group of 7 major economic powers over the weekend in Quebec, where he lashed out at traditional allies such as Canada and said Russian Federation ought to be invited to rejoin.

Trump said on Friday that Russian Federation should have attended a Group of Seven summit in Canada over the weekend, an idea that even Moscow seemed to reject saying it was focused on other formats. The Shanghai organization, which Beijing began in 2001 as an alternative to US -dominated diplomatic groups, includes China, Russia, India, Pakistan and the nations of Central Asia. In the USA, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in a bid to sway the 2016 presidential election in his favor. "I would recommend, and it is up to them, but Russian Federation should be at the meeting", Trump noted.

The move came after Trump refused to endorse a G-7 statement.

"But I think this is a technicality", he said.

"And we've made a lot of progress today", Trump said. "We need the president to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries, and to treat each accordingly", he said in a statement.

The G7 group consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the US.

But EU President Donald Tusk also rejected the idea.

Ahead of the encounter, the allies made no secret of their anger at Trump's stance, pointed starkly to fears that he is undermining the rules-based world order and driving former United States friends into a damaging trade war. Earlier, Putin criticised the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit, reports AP.

Trump, before jumping on Air Force One to fly to Canada which is hosting the G7 summit, called for a return to the body's pre-2014 "G8" formula.

G7 chiefs have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilise the Korean peninsula, but they are unhappy he pulled out of an global agreement to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The two nations have also "resolutely supported each other's core interests", developed trade ties and proactively participated in global governance to promote a "community of common destiny", Xi said.

"Look, all of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", Trump told reporters as he left the White House, repeating his longstanding complaints about trade deficits and tariffs.

"President Putin and I both think that the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership is mature, firm and stable", Xi told reporters after the meeting in Beijing on Friday.

In early April, Kremlin aide Vladimir Ushakov said Trump had proposed a meeting with Putin during a telephone call.

The French president did have some private time with Trump before the summit officially started. Trump will be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a historic summit.

Trump says they will either have a better agreement on NAFTA or two deals involving separate trade deals with Canada and Mexico.

"Our relationship is very good".
