Putin heads to Beijing for state visit with birthday buddy Xi Jinping

Putin heads to Beijing for state visit with birthday buddy Xi Jinping

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and USA leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna. Tensions mounted between the Trump administration and fellow G7 members Canada, Germany and France when the USA imposed steep tariffs on imported metals from the countries.

Russia's membership in the G8 was suspended in 2014, after it illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

"They threw Russian Federation out".

"We have always been clear that we should engage with Russian Federation".

President Donald Trump has called on the leaders of G-7 on Friday to reinstate Russian Federation as a member.

Russian Federation supports China's proposal for a "dual track" and "suspension-for-suspension" approach that calls for North Korea to stop its nuclear and missile testing in exchange for a halt to joint military exercises between the USA and South Korea.

"It is evident that the American president and the rest of the group continue to disagree on trade, climate change and the Iran nuclear deal", Tusk admitted.

Mr Trump made the comment at the White House after hours of further escalating his rhetoric against long-time allies over U.S. trade practices.

On the eve of the summit, Trump lashed out on Twitter at Macron and Trudeau, who earlier Friday criticized Trump's trade stance a joint news conference in Ottawa.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G7 countries", Trump tweeted.

"It is the highest-level, most profound and strategically most significant relationship between major countries in the world", said Mr Xi.

"We are thinking about the presidential summit, and in conversations with American partners this question emerges". He declared, "We have to straighten it out".

"They didn't tell you that, did they? If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!", he states.

Trump joined the leaders of major industrialized nations in an idyllic Canadian resort town after days of escalating conflict over new United States tariffs he slapped on imports of steel and aluminum.

"I saw some of those reports [and] we all kind of chuckled and laughed".

In a combined effort, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau failed recently to convince Trump not to impose tariffs on the allies.

Trump has had a volatile relationship with Russian Federation over that nation's efforts to disrupt the American presidential election in 2016.

Trudeau told reporters the United States national security justification for the tariffs on steel and aluminum was "laughable". The trilateral meeting, the fourth of its kind, was chaired by Xi Jinping. Later the leaders were to tuck into a dinner of lobster, asparagus and maple leaves nestled on a brioche at the end of the first day of talks.

"There is no doubt that foreign interference in our democratic institutions and processes, and other forms of hostile activity, pose a strategic threat to our shared values and interests", British Prime Minister Theresa May said at the G7 Summit on Saturday.
