Dialogue with Trump could be 'constructive': Putin

All questions of a possible summit between the two leaders were also pushed aside with President Putin giving an answer that as beneficial as it might prove to be, the current domestic political situation in the United States stood as a huge barrier between mutual positive communication.

Aside from the United States, the G7 consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Britain. "I fully agree with him", he said, adding that personal meetings and work by experts are needed to tackle the issue.

The statement made no mention of Russian Federation being invited back into the group from which it was kicked out in response to its 2014 annexation of Crimea, despite US President Donald Trump's insistence that the club would be better off if it brought Russian Federation back into the fold.

Austria and other European countries, he said, have been discussed as a possible venue for a U.S. -Russia meeting.

Putin chalked the incident up to "internal problems" for Trump.

"Russia welcomes the planned summit of the USA and North Korea and notes China's big contribution to helping settle the crisis on the Korean Peninsula", Putin said.

Trump said Russian Federation should have been invited to the talks in Quebec.

While Donald Trump is in Canada getting the cold shoulder from G7 leaders, Russian President Vladimir Putin is receiving accolades in China. "And in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out; they should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table". For the president of the United States to blame his predecessor rather than to understand that Russian Federation is our adversary - Russian Federation has taken on behavior that is absolutely reprehensible, including being responsible for shooting civilian aircraft out of the sky and killing hundreds of people.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump said Saturday before he left the gathering to travel to Singapore.

"We are pro-Italian, not pro-Russia", Di Maio told a radio interviewer, while stressing that Conte would make his own decisions when representing Italy on the world stage.

"After the U.S. unilateral and illegal exit, Moscow has an important role in the reinforcement of the JCPOA and fulfillment of the opposite sides' commitments", he added.

The president's move to reject the communique contradicted a statement from Trudeau earlier, in which the prime minister announced "we have released a joint communique by all seven countries".

Putin said the G7 countries "again" failed to provide any evidence that his country was behind the Skripal poisoning in the southwest of England.

Highlighting the importance of maintaining regional stability and security, he added, "we want to see a secure and stable Afghanistan, and the coordination of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan is very important for the security and development of the region". The English-language Twitter of account of the Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper posted photos of a tense scene in La Malbaie, Quebec, and another of Xi and Putin smiling, with the caption, "G7 vs SCO: two meetings on the same day".
