Putin would be ready to host G7 in Moscow

The pair collapsed in Salisbury earlier this year and were in critical condition for weeks before recovering

Putting a fearless face on a failed effort by President Donald Trump to have Russia readmitted to the world's most exclusive diplomatic club, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the G-7 represented fewer people and had less economic heft than the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. "I would recommend, and it is up to them, but Russian Federation should be at the meeting", Trump noted.

At the G-7 gathering in Canada on Friday, Trump suggested that Russian Federation be offered a seat at the "negotiating table" of the organization, which was previously called the G-8 before Russian Federation was ousted for annexing Crimea in 2014. The Shanghai organization, which Beijing began in 2001 as an alternative to US -dominated diplomatic groups, includes China, Russia, India, Pakistan and the nations of Central Asia.

"We did not (choose to) leave it, our colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to known reasons at some point", Putin told reporters at a briefing in the Chinese city of Qingdao, Reuters reported.

Warning that "unilateralism, trade protectionism and a backlash against globalization are taking new forms", Xi spoke up for the "pursuit of cooperation for mutual benefit".

President mentioned that Pakistan looks forward to participating in the 17th meeting of Council of Heads of Government of SCO member states which will be held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan in October 2018.

"The nuclear energy state-owned corporation Rosatom is one of Russia's most internationally competitive companies", Lukin said. "We have the recent example of U.S. unilateralism and its defiance of the worldwide community when the USA pulled out from the JCPOA", he said.

Though not officially on the agenda, analysts say the summit may focus on whether Iran will be allowed to become a full member state, which it has been unable to achieve while subject to United Nations sanctions. China and India had their own heated border dispute in the Himalayas past year.

Meanwhile, President Mamnoon Hussain also met Emomali Rahmon, President of Tajikistan on the sidelines of the Qingdao Summit.

Fred's move to Manchester United receives Brazilian legend Rivaldo's seal of approval
Fred is really excited to join the Mancunian club after having being Jose Mourinho's prime target for quite a while. United finished second in the Premier League behind City but were a whopping 19 points behind their fierce rivals.


On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told Trump that asking Russian Federation to rejoin the G7 is "not something we are even remotely looking at".

Earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said in his departure note before leaving for Qingdao that "SCO has a rich agenda for cooperation, ranging from fighting terrorism, separatism and extremism".

"This medal of friendship represents the Chinese people's lofty respect for President Putin, and symbolizes the profound friendship between China and Russian Federation", he said.

In 2013, before travelling to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, Donald Trump asked plaintively on Twitter whether Vladimir Putin would be attending, and "if so, will he become my new best friend?"

For his part, Rouhani said the "US effort to impose its policies on others is an expanding danger".

The group demonstrated solidarity in pledging to uphold the Iran nuclear deal, a major source of G7 contention after Trump's withdrawal last month.

"This will have many harmful consequences for the global community", he said.
