Putin says he'll meet with Trump whenever United States is ready

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas

Moscow remains committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, addressing an extended session of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in China's Qingdao.

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

Stressing that Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination remains Russia's diplomatic priority, Putin said the two countries have taken care of each other's core interests and major concerns, actively promoted dialogues and cooperation in political, economic and people-to-people and cultural areas, and worked closely in worldwide affairs.

Putin's remarks followed a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.

Russian Federation was pushed out of the then G8 due to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea four years ago.

Trump has repeatedly put himself at odds with practically the entire United States political and security establishment over Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Trump will skip part of the summit on Saturday as he travels to Singapore to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in hopes of resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.

Speaking to AFP in Lithuania's capital Vilnius, senior Iranian official Massoumeh Ebtekar said Iran hoped European powers, Russian Federation and China would confirm their willingness to uphold the deal "as soon as possible because Iran can not wait forever".

He emphasized that the bloc's members, who also include China, four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan, are anxious about the US move.

Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation. On Xi's last visit to Moscow, in July 2017, Putin made him a member of the Order of St Andrew, Russia's highest chivalric order.

On the prospect of a third World War, Putin said that the threat of mutual destruction has always restrained participants of the worldwide arena and prevented leading military powers from making hasty moves.

U.S. President Donald Trump told Group of Seven leaders that the United States wanted a quick end to trade practices that he says have led to an exodus of American companies and jobs to other countries.

"As for the United States' illegal walkout from these agreements, a far more serious and important dialogue between our countries is required", TASS quoted Rouhani as saying. "Please, we would be happy to see everyone in Moscow", he added.

The location of the Sunday summit, Qingdao, China, is approximately 400 miles southeast of Beijing.

Meeting in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, Xi lauded their relationship.

Tur said to Ali Velshi, "It does kind of feel like Donald Trump is nearly out to create a new world order".
