Putin says "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".

Conte was commenting from the G7 summit in Canada, where the leaders of Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Japan, Canada and the U.S. are gathered for top-level talks. He added that Russian Federation would seek to maintain the agreement despite U.S. plans to resume sanctions against Iran.

Rouhani said the U.S. was monitoring the global reaction to its withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and a weak response would encourage it to carry on acting unilaterally.

Nearly immediately after US President Donald J. Trump caused a major rift in the Euro-Atlantic alliance by castigating his closest allies in the UK, Canada, and Germany by refusing to endorse a communique that called for an worldwide, rules-based trade regime, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte joined Trump in further infuriating the Western alliance by for Russia's return to the global forum.

"The US president himself repeatedly said that he would consider such a meeting helpful".

Trump and Putin have spoken by phone eight times, according to readouts distributed by the White House.

But it remains unclear if Kim will part with what he likely views as his most important bargaining chip any time soon. Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the United States and North Korea.

The leaders of China and Russia Sunday praised the expansion of their regional security bloc at a summit which put on a show of unity contrasting with the acrimonious G7 meeting.

"As soon as the American side is ready, this meeting will be held immediately, depending on my work schedule", Putin said. "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.

Sanders condemned Trump's move to alienate longterm allies and associate himself with authoritarian leaders like Russian president Vladimir Putin, Chinese president Xi Jinping, and President of Philippines, Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

"We did not (choose to) leave it, our colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to known reasons at some point". I may have had a much different attitude, so you'd really have to ask that question of President Obama, you know - why did he do that? why did he do that? At this point it's hard to justify adding Russian Federation to the G-7 when we aren't adding an ally like South Korea, not to mention China, India or Brazil, since they all have larger and more globally significant economies than Russian Federation does. "We supported the Ukrainian government to build up its defensive military capacity, and along with our G7 partners, we agreed that Russian Federation should no longer be part of this community of the G8".

"There is no doubt that foreign interference in our democratic institutions and processes, and other forms of hostile activity, pose a strategic threat to our shared values and interests", British Prime Minister Theresa May said at the G7 Summit on Saturday.

Coming in the shadow of the G7, the emphasis of Putin's visit is to deepen the political and economic partnership, and this trip has the bonus of meeting fellow SCO leaders from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan, and the observer states of Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran, and Mongolia.
