Putin says ready to meet Trump 'as soon as' Washington is ready

Ghani arrived in Qingdao, east China's Shandong province on Saturday to attend the 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit which begun on Saturday and will finish on Sunday.

"As soon as the USA side is ready, this meeting shall take place, of course, fitting my working schedule".

Trump has received a lot of flak from allies for voicing out such a decision, bringing into question the ex-CIA director's claims that Trump fears Putin.

"China is willing to work with Russian Federation and other countries to preserve the JCPOA", Xi said.

"This issue must be clear, that Iran's officials will not wait for Europe's endless promises", Larijani told parliament in a televised address. Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who US intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

"Russia calls for strict and consistent implementation of this plan", Putin stated. All questions of a possible summit between the two leaders were also pushed aside with President Putin giving an answer that as beneficial as it might prove to be, the current domestic political situation in the U.S. stood as a huge barrier between mutual positive communication. "Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow", Putin told reporters at a briefing in China's city of Qingdao. If the G-7 were to expand, it should include India and Brazil, both democracies that have larger economies than Russia's.

After the meeting, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not mince words, calling the USA tariffs "insulting" and saying: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Trump hints at supporting pro-medical marijuana bill
Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP Glen Motz says he is concerned there won't be enough debate on the amendments to the bill. California and eight other states, as well as Washington , DC, have legalised all adult use of marijuana.

"Once again, nothing concrete was said", Putin said, referring to the G-7 statement.

"We reiterate our condemnation of the illegal annexation of Crimea and reaffirm our enduring support for Ukrainian sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders", the G7 statement said.

"For Putin, this is return on his investment, and it's safe to say that his investment has paid off beyond even his wildest dreams", he said in a statement to CNN. "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani criticized U.S. "unilateralism" in withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and said on Sunday he appreciated efforts by China and Russian Federation to maintain the agreement.

Departing the White House for a fractious summit with European, Canadian and Japanese leaders, Trump said their 2014 decision to suspend Russian Federation from the group of the world's most advanced economies - after Russian Federation annexed Ukraine's Crimea region - should be reversed.

He adds Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Addressing the 18th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) on Sunday in Qingdao, China, President Hassan Rouhani described the United States' move to impose its own policies on others as a growing threat, saying "unilateral sanctions damage the process of legal global business".
