Putin Arrives in Beijing for Russia-China Summit

Then, Trump and Macron met again on the sidelines of the summit Friday evening.

Dismissing everything you might have heard from Sean Hannity, you have to ask yourself, "What the fuck does Putin have on Trump?"

In April, the White House confirmed the two leaders spoke in a phone call about meeting at the White House "in the 'not-too-distant-future'".

'As soon as the U.S. side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule'.

Noting that Russian Federation and other members of the Eurasian Economic Union "also have disputes and do not unanimously sign everything at the same time", he played down the furor over Trump's undiplomatic diplomacy: "We can see that there are internal problems there".

But both nations have touted their nuclear supremacy.

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

Russian Federation and China "are interested in establishing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula", Putin said in a joint press briefing with Xi after their talks.

"We oppose the practice of sacrificing other countries' security for their own absolute security", Xi told a gathering of the SCO's heads of state in the Chinese port of Qingdao. "If we are able to keep up this rate of growth we may be able set a record at the level we discussed achieving over the period of several years - $100 billion", Putin said.

"It's kind of insulting", Trudeau said.

At issue are new USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

He also blamed ex-President Barack Obama for the annexation of Crimea by Russian Federation.

"We can differently assess decisions that are taken by the United States, including by the USA president". He said the Chinese president was the only state leader to have celebrated his birthday with him, with the pair sharing a drink and sausage.

Elsewhere in her remarks, May underscored the need to stop having tit-for-tat actions in a trade war between the European Union and the USA which began after Trump imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from key allies.

Donald Trump has dealt another blow to G7 unity after calling for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group - a call rejected by Theresa May.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs. But his conviction was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, and in a statement Ali's attorney, Ron Tweel, said that although he appreciated Trump's sentiment, "a pardon is unnecessary".

Earlier Saturday, the German government posted on Twitter a photo that shows the leaders and aides.

Trump headed to the G-7 meeting after his administration imposed sanctions on those nations participating, likely making for a fractious summit.

"Things happen", Putin said. "If we take the EAEU [the Eurasian Economic Union], we also have debates and it is not so that everyone signs everything right away".

"If we calculate... per capita, the seven countries are wealthier, but the size of the SCO economies [combined] is larger".

Highlighting their major accomplishments, Putin extended his congratulations to the award winners and praised their work as an example of special and inspiring strength that opens up space for pursuing scientific quests and creativity.
