Dialogue with Trump could be 'constructive': Putin

BEIJING CHINA- MAY 15 Chinese President Xi Jinping attends a news conference at the end of the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran said in a meeting on Saturday with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that more dialogue is needed between Tehran and Moscow now that Donald Trump has withdrawn the USA from the multilateral 2015 nuclear deal.

"I believe it's necessary to stop this creative babbling and shift to concrete issues related to real cooperation", Putin told reporters on a visit to China, when asked to comment on a G7 joint statement.

Putin spoke Sunday at a gathering of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Qingdao, China.

Trump has repeatedly put himself at odds with practically the entire USA political and security establishment over Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.

President Donald Trump suggested ahead of arriving at the G-7 summit Friday that the group offer a seat at the table to Russian Federation.

Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the United States over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

"They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", the U.S. leader said before boarding the presidential jet.

The U.S. also recently sold American-made Javelin anti-tank missiles to the Ukrainian military, to help combat the pro-Russian separatists who have been active in the east of the country since Russia annexed Crime in 2014.

The SCO meeting comes at a time that Trump unilaterally pulled Washington out of the worldwide nuclear pact with Iran.




Speaking at the start of his meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the summit, Rouhani hailed close Iran-Russia ties.

Chinese President Xi Jinping bestowed Putin with the inaugural Friendship Medal of the People's Republic of China, for, among other things, "safeguarding world peace".

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

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalisation", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.

Vienna has been discussed as a possible venue for a summit between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Putin says some nations including Austria have offered to host his summit with Trump.

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.

"The nuclear energy state-owned corporation Rosatom is one of Russia's most internationally competitive companies", Lukin said.
