However, having pulled out of the deal, the U.S. now says it will impose severe economic and trade sanctions on Iran. If we are to take his statement at face value, that "we have a world to run" and Russian Federation is an important economic actor, then it would make sense for China to be part of the group.

Putin is in Beijing for a state visit, during which he will attend a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

"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", Putin said.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for the official welcoming ceremony the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

"As for Russia's return to the G7, or G8: we did not leave it".

Lavrov said Russian Federation is "working fine in other formats" such as the Group of 20, TASS state news agency reported.

"Today crystallises precisely why Putin was so eager to see Trump elected", said Ned Price, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst and the National Security Council spokesman under then-President Barack Obama.

Not content with just starting a trade war with America's supposed allies, Donald Trump risked enraging G7 allies further by suggesting that Russian Federation should be reinstated as a member. It may also add to concerns in the United States and among allies that the U.S. President, whose campaign team is under investigation for possible collusion with Russian Federation, is too close to the Kremlin.

After days of insults, Trump and Trudeau pal around at G7
Donald Trump disrupted a G7 breakfast discussion on women's empowerment Saturday morning by showing up late. Although, he said if he senses Kim is not serious, he won't prolong talks.

"This medal of friendship represents the Chinese people's lofty respect for President Putin, and symbolises the profound friendship between China and Russia", Xi said.

"Justin has agreed to cut all tariffs and all trade barriers between Canada and the United States", he joked, but also urged the Prime Minister to cut Mexico out of the troubled NAFTA talks - a suggestion already rejected by Mr. Trudeau.

The member countries are Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, the United States and Britain. "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.

But, she said, "It is an asymmetrical relationship with Russian Federation who is more dependent on China than vice versa, especially in the economic sphere".

"We're looking for peace in the world", Trump said Saturday, according to the Daily News.

"Russia should be in this meeting".

"The recent example of such unilateralism and the defiance of the decisions of the global community by the US government is its withdrawal from the JCPOA", he said, referring to the nuclear agreement by its official name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

"We need the president to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries, and to treat each accordingly", he said in a statement.
