Putin criticizes US withdrawal from Iranian nuclear deal

Putin criticizes US withdrawal from Iranian nuclear deal

The Italian prime minister was due to meet the leaders of France, Germany and the UK before the main summit in a session seen as a European "huddle" created to present a united front to President Trump, who has imposed trade tariffs on the EU and disagrees with the bloc over a nuclear deal with Iran.

Putin's comments that he was ready to meet Trump came just a day after the US President rattled G7 leaders at a summit in Canada, where he repeated his appeal to the group to allow Russian Federation back in.

Moscow has denied any interference, and U.S. President Donald Trump has denied any collusion. "The meeting will take place as soon as the United States is ready, though my working schedule must also be taken into consideration", Putin added.

Russian Federation has never turned its back on the G8 (now G7), Vladimir Putin said, speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

Russian President Vladimir Putin also criticised the USA for its withdrawal, claiming the decision could potentially destabilise the situation.

"It wasn't us who left", he said.

Britain blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning of the Skripals with a nerve agent in March in the British city of Salisbury, the accusations Moscow has vehemently denied.

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

Trump Needs a Tough North Korea Deal, But Not Because of Iran
Al Jazeera's James Bays, reporting from Singapore , said Trump has been sending " mixed messages " to Kim ahead of their meeting. In his first public comments since arriving, Kim said Singapore's role would be recorded in history if the summit was a success.

"I would like to add that the Syrian government now has control over the territory where 90 percent of the population live".

"This medal of friendship represents the Chinese people's lofty respect for President Putin, and symbolizes the profound friendship between China and Russian Federation", he said.

China and Russian Federation are also involved in creating alternative forums to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, including the New Development Bank.

"In order for this to be discussed in detail, it is necessary that our foreign ministries, the experts work very closely with each other, and, of course, personal meetings are necessary", Putin said at a press conference on the results of his visit to China. "I believe that the ball is in America's court".

Nuclear power deals signed by the two leaders in Beijing - the biggest such cooperation agreements between the two countries that were reached after more than two years of negotiation - cover three projects including the Tianwan plant in Jiangsu and the Xudabao facility in Liaoning, state-run China National Nuclear Corporation said in a statement.

Calling for improving banking relations between the two countries, he went on to say that Iran can be a reliable source for supplying energy to Pakistan.

President Donald Trump announced last month the United States was withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal and re-imposing sanctions that would hit global businesses working in the Islamic republic.

Last month, Trump pulled out of former U.S. President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.
