China’s Xi hails ‘unity’ of security bloc led with Russian Federation

China’s Xi hails ‘unity’ of security bloc led with Russian Federation

Vienna has been discussed as a possible venue for a summit between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, the Kremlin said Saturday.

The American leader has repeatedly said he wants to improve relationships with Moscow.

"The understanding that a third world war could be the end of civilization should restrain us from taking extreme steps on the global arena that are highly risky for modern civilization", he said, according to a report by Haaretz.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who Trump feuded with during the talks over trade and tariffs, rejected any suggestion of Moscow returning to the group.

Authorities emptied an entire oceanside swathe of the city - clearing out shopkeepers, residents and day-trippers to make way for Xi, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "Colleagues refused to Russian Federation on well-known grounds".

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

"I see this as an acknowledgement and an evaluation of Russia's efforts to develop a comprehensive strategic partnership with China", he said.

However, US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, vowing to reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

The Russian leader said he shares concerns that Trump has voiced about a renewed arms race, adding that a thorough discussion is needed to address the issue.

Pep Guardiola has defended himself against Yaya Toure's accusation that he has a problem with African players , calling the Ivorian's claim a "lie".

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".

Russian Federation was expelled from the grouping in 2014 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

Putin also said he would be happy to welcome the leaders of G7 to Moscow any time.

Speaking about the Skripal case, discussed at G7 summit, Putin noted, that "nothing new" was said on the matter, stressing that "it is necessary to stop chatter and move on to cooperation".

Now in the wake of the U.S. withdrawal from the pact, "SCO members may use granting full membership to Iran as a way to demonstrate support for (Tehran) and the nuclear agreement", said Dawn Murphy, professor of worldwide security studies at the U.S. Air War College.

Rouhani also expressed happiness over Pakistan's membership in SCO and said that Iran supports Islamabad's effective role in the organisation.

Speaking during a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Qingdao on Sunday, Putin emphasized that the bloc members are anxious about the US move.

Both leaders also issued a joint declaration pledging to preserve the global accord on Iran's nuclear programme which the United States withdrew from last month.
