Putin meanwhile said Russian Federation would work with China on the North Korean nuclear issue, ahead of the highly anticipated meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
United States president Donald Trump has called for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G7.
Yet Trump wants them there, and other than his apparently desperate desire to hang out with Putin, it's hard to imagine why.
In his remarks to reporters on the White House lawn before departing for Canada Friday morning, Trump touched on a wide range of topics.
"The US president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting", Putin said on the sidelines of a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. The differences between Trump and the other leaders are not only restricted to the trade but has extended in the other arenas like the conflict of Israel-Palestine, climate change, and the relationship with Iran. "I confirm that it is so", Putin said, adding that during his latest telephone call with the USA president in March, Trump had particularly expressed concern about a new round of arms race. However, Russia was kicked out of the group after it annexed the Crimea and then supported the pro-Russians in Ukraine. "Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow", Putin told reporters at a briefing in China's city of Qingdao.
And other G-7 nations immediately signaled they had zero interest in welcoming Moscow back into the club.
He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March.
Washington's trading partners are angry about US President Donald Trump's decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered to visit Washington for an assessment of EU-US trade to help resolve the dispute, an official said.
