Alexander Gabuev, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Moscow Centre, said the nuclear cooperation deals were "pure pragmatism and a rare example of a genuine win-win" between the two countries.

The Iranian president further described Washington's recent decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear agreement as "a recent example of the United States' unilateralism and indifference towards the opinions of the worldwide community".

Speaking during a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Qingdao on Sunday, Putin emphasized that the bloc members are anxious about the US move.

"The recent example of such unilateralism and the defiance of the decisions of the worldwide 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. Trump called the deal "defective at its core".

The Associated Press reported that Putin addressed the issue at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, two days after Trump recommended Russian Federation should again be part what was previously the G8.

Putin said the bloc's new counterterrorism agreement foresees joint drills, exchanging information and conducting coordinated anti-terror action.

'As soon as the USA side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule'.

Another posting says he is looking forward to straightening out unfair trade deals with the G7 countries.

She started by saying most people assume that groups of women can't get along, but their set was filled with so much love. Ocean's 8 star Sandra Bullock has revealed that she nearly quit acting because of Hollywood sexism .

Putin's remarks followed a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting. "Because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", he told reporters.

Solidifying his solo status on the world stage, Trump also lashed out at longtime allies over their criticism of his trade policies.

During that same call, which came shorty after Putin's latest election victory, Trump was given explicit instructions in his daily briefing materials to avoid congratulating his counterpart.

"As for the return of Russian Federation to the Group of Seven, the Group of Eight, we have not left it". 'Colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation on well-known grounds'. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told Trump the organization is not "remotely" considering adding Russian Federation.

Asked for his impression of the Chinese leader for life, Putin said Xi was "approachable and sincere", as well as "perhaps the only state leader who has celebrated my birthday with me".

Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who USA intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

Both Moscow and Trump have denied any such activity.

Earlier this month Israeli officials denied claims by Russia's ambassador to the United Nations that it has reached an agreement with Moscow on the withdrawal of Iranian forces from southwest Syria. When will this very expensive Witch Hunt Hoax ever end?
