Rouhani at SCO summit: Unilateral sanctions damage legal int'l business

Donald Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping

During the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) on Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the assembled leaders, including Rouhani, that the United States withdrawal could "destabilise the situation" but Moscow still supports the "unconditional implementation" of the deal.

Commenting on the G-7's statement, Putin said: "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".

While the 17-year-old Shanghai Cooperation Organization has increasingly extended into trade and economic cooperation - the G-7's central focus - it was founded as a security group. "And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency", the palace said.

In 2014 Russian Federation was booted from the G7 for annexing Crimea and invading Ukraine.

The group of industrialized nations once included Russian Federation and was known as the G8.

He emphasized the need for the group to closely follow the situation in Afghanistan to fend off the threats posed by militants in the country.

The Russian government's representative in Crimea, Georgy Muradov, extended an invitation to Salvini to visit the occupied peninsula, the Kremlin-controlled TASS news outlet reported.

France and Germany have criticized President Donald Trump for threatening to pull the United States out of a joint statement with key G7 allies.

He also voiced Beijing's strong opposition to Washington's unilateral move to withdraw from the nuclear accord and re-impose sanctions on Tehran, emphasizing that the remaining signatories must fulfill their commitments under the JCPOA.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has criticized the USA withdrawal from the nuclear deal, referring to that as a sample of unilateralism and defiance of the decisions made by the global community. The bloc includes China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan.

"The US president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting", Putin said on the sidelines of a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei declared five basic conditions for Tehran's stay in the nuclear deal, namely that the European countries undertaking not to question Iran's ballistic missile program and Tehran's regional role, in addition to issuing a resolution condemning the United States for withdrawing from the agreement and providing guarantees including confronting U.S. sanctions and establishing banking relations with Iranian banks.

Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation.

Xinhua quoted Xi as saying that the Iran nuclear deal should continue to be implemented earnestly as it acts to stabilize the peace and stability in the Middle East as well as for the global non-proliferation regime.
