Why are we having a meeting without them?

Putin expressed support for Iran's permanent membership in the grouping. He says he agrees with that, adding that a thorough discussion is needed to address the issue.

Since the heads of state of China, Russia and Mongolia held their first meeting more than three years ago, the three countries have centered on aligning China's Belt and Road Initiative with Russia's development strategies, especially its transcontinental rail plan, and Mongolia's "development path" initiative, deepened cooperation and yielded results, said Xi.

The expert recalled that during the latest Q&A, Putin said that in case of an escalation in Donbas, this will have "grave consequences for the Ukrainian statehood as such".

The US president has repeatedly said he wants to improve relationships with Moscow.

"We have massive trade deficits with nearly every country, we will straighten that out", Trump said. "Back in the day colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to certain reasons".

While never mentioning the United States by name, he added: "We should reject the Cold War mentality and confrontation between blocs, and oppose the practice of seeking absolute security of oneself at the expense of others, so as to obtain security of all".

Not content with just starting a trade war with America's supposed allies, Donald Trump risked enraging G7 allies further by suggesting that Russian Federation should be reinstated as a member.

"Russia has done nothing to earn its way back to the table", Donilon also said.

Speaking on background, Canadian officials said Ottawa's position hasn't changed and they believe that Russia's illegal annexation and occupation of Crimea disqualifies Moscow from participation.

Putin also praised joint efforts for peace in the world and affirmed that on the major issues of security, China and Russian Federation stand united.

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".

The G7 endorsed Britain's accusation that Moscow was behind the poisoning attack in the southwest of England on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

"Once again, nothing concrete was said", Putin said, referring to the G7 statement.

'It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues'.

Rouhani said the United States was monitoring the global reaction to its withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and a weak response would encourage it to carry on acting unilaterally.

The meeting comes after US President Donald Trump controversially pulled Washington out of the 2015 worldwide pact with Iran that placed limits on its nuclear program in return for easing economic sanctions.
