U.S. president Donald Trump has called for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G7.
Angela Merkel, German Vice chancellor also stated in a press conference on Friday that "a return by Russian Federation to the G7 format can not happen as long as there isn't any substantial progress in regard to the problems with Ukraine".
"Let's remember why the G8 became the G7".
After the Beijing visit, Putin will join Xi at a weekend summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao.
The SCO was created in 2001 by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Russia, Tajikstan and Uzbekistan. Last year, however, India and Pakistan were admitted as full members, while Iran remains an observer. At present, the disunited Western democracies can not pretend to set the rules for the disorderly rest of the world (Nezavisimaya Gazeta, June 9).
The new government in Rome has previously said that the sanctions on Russian Federation have severely damaged Italy's agriculture and tourism industries, well as its design and handicraft sectors, after Italy became the top country in Europe for Russia's monied oligarchs to spend money on luxury goods and vacation property during the years of Italy's convicted former prime minister, as well as Putin's close personal friend and an acquaintance of Trump's, Silvio Berlusconi.
"We are simplifying the mutual availability of goods and services, improving customs regulations, eliminating unnecessary administrative barriers, and implementing joint projects in energy, transport and agriculture", Putin said.
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 US which began after Trump imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from key allies.
They included deals envisaging the construction of two more nuclear reactors at China's Tianwan nuclear power plant and more reactors at another location.
Putin welcomed the peace process in the peninsula and acknowledged China's efforts in doing so.
But, after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump struck a more affable tone and said the French leader was helping work out trade issues. And the Kremlin has repeatedly signaled its readiness to make haste with the preparations (RIA Novosti, June 9). A senior British government official responded to Trump by stating that Russian Federation would need to "change its approach" before any conversations about rejoining the G-7 could occur. 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".
Notably, Vladimir Putin's personal frustration with the Group had been reported long before the 2014 suspension - the Russian President skipped the world leaders meeting in Camp David, the us presidential retreat near Washington, DC, in May 2012, and Putin's "loneliness" was a trending world headline during the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland in 2013. Yet, given the depth of disagreements on the Iran issue, it is hard to see how the US-Russian discussions on Syria could progress beyond de-confliction talks.
Trump will arrive Friday at the annual gathering, held this year at a Quebec resort, but will leave Saturday morning before the event is over, heading to Singapore for his highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
But details are scant so far, and clear differences are remaining.
