"To answer this tweet and Trump's provocation at the G7 - if Russian Federation does not demonstrate any move forward, and we will invite them back, no one would understand this", Niels Annen, a minister of state at the German Federal Foreign Office, said on Monday. Trump said the final outcome would lead either to a better agreement on NAFTA or separate trade deals with both Canada and Mexico.
The American leader has repeatedly said he wants to improve relationships with Moscow.
Xi said the two countries have "always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority direction". Nevertheless, he mentioned that the ball remained in America's court, and the decision depended upon the personal desires and acumen of the POTUS.
This past weekend, President Trump attended the G-7 meeting in Canada. Putin, who is on an official visit from June 8 to 10, has arrived China for the third time in just one year.
We have to treat this very accurately and carefully, such phenomenon has its place in the world, it is developing!
In his address, Chinese President Xi Jinping also made a veiled dig at the United States for withdrawing from the deal, noting that China was willing to work with Russian Federation and other countries to protect the deal, reports PTI. Iran is aware of its role in establishing peace and security and development in the region and, regarding its considerable potentials such as its young and educated population, rich energy sources, countless mines, and its strategic location, is ready to develop regional and global economic cooperation as an independent and reliable partner. Russian Federation used to be included rounding out the group to G8, Trump has been lobbying for the country to be let back in.
Then President Trump tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow'. "They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table." adding, "I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in". But Russia was suspended from the group in 2014 after it annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine.
Trump has now exited three major treaties - the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear accord - and thrown into doubt the future of another - the North American Free Trade Agreement - while launching a reckless trade war against our closest allies.
Mr Putin also criticised the United States withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit.
Russian President Vladimir Putin to o sounded critical of the USA decision, saying the move may destabilise the Gulf region.
