China, Russia cementing rising Eastern bloc as Trump rattles G-7

"It's in everyone's interests", Conte added, in an echo of Trump's own words after the combative U.S. president shocked both his allies and those back in his own country when he announced in Washington that, "Russia should be in (sic) this meeting", Trump told reporters in Washington as he left the White House.

"Everyone demonstrated solidarity with London over a certain event in Salisbury but nothing concrete was said again", Putin said.

The comments come after Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted into the G-7 summit, a meeting of seven countries with major economies.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told the assembled leaders during Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit, that the U.S. withdrawal could "destabilize the situation" but Moscow still supports the "unconditional implementation" of the Iran nuclear deal.

White House aide Larry Kudlow tells CNN's "State of the Union" says Trudeau has done a "great disservice" to the G-7 by saying Canada had to stand up for itself and that the US was responsible for the problem with tariffs. The Kremlin has complained that efforts to organize the meeting seem frozen.

"Russia should be in this meeting", Trump told reporters before leaving the White House South Lawn for Canada, where the summit is being held.

Russian Federation was kicked out in 2014 after annexing Crimea. Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who USA intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win. The bloc includes China, Russia, four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, India and Pakistan. "Back in the day colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to certain reasons".

In a statement issued by 6 of the 7 countries at the G-7, they said that together they were a larger economic powerhouse than the United States.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has criticised the United States for "imposing its policies on the rest of the world".

Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based SCO has largely served as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.

He made the remarks on June 10 while addressed the 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in China, the state-run IRINN TV reported.

Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation. The Islamic Republic of Iran has so far lived up to all his commitments under the JCPOA and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has so far confirmed my country's commitment to its obligations for 11 times.
