Trump says that Russia should be reinstated as a G8 member
The suggestion from Trump, made on June 8 on the eve of a summit of G7 leaders, was the latest in a string of conciliatory statements by him toward Moscow, a stance that has clashed with many congressional Republicans and Democrats, as well as large parts of the USA foreign policy establishment.
"Whether you like it or - and it may not be politically correct - but we have a world to run and in the G7, which used to be the G8 they threw Russian Federation out, they should let Russian Federation come back in", Trump said upon his arrival in La Malbaie, the small town in Quebec that is hosting the weekend's summit.
Trump's call also comes amid the continuing criminal and congressional investigations into what the USA intelligence community concluded was a campaign by Moscow to use propaganda and hacking to influence the 2016 US presidential election.
Putin took a detour en route to a security summit in the Chinese port city Qingdao in order to accept the medal - China's "highest state honour" awarded to foreigners - at a ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, reports Singapore-based newspaper The Strait Times.
Putin's latest trip has emphasised the positive mood music between the Russian and Chinese presidents which is underpinning the wider warming of ties. We rallied the entire European Union and many other partners to impose tough sanctions on Russian Federation for its annexation. Tensions mounted between the Trump administration and fellow G7 members Canada, Germany and France when the United States imposed steep tariffs on imported metals from the countries.
The six remaining nations, he said, "represent values" and a "true worldwide market force".
Lavrov said Russian Federation is "working fine in other formats" such as the Group of 20, TASS state news agency reported. "It's a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well".
Putin said trade and investment among SCO countries was growing and Russian Federation and China would propose a Eurasian economic partnership for all member states. "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.
"It is the highest-level, most profound and strategically most significant relationship between major countries in the world", said Mr Xi.
Last month, President Donald Trump pulled out of former President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.
"For four years, we have been saying we will extend again if and when the Minsk agreements are respected", Macron said.

Rafael Nadal secures 11th French Open title
Nadal wept after being handed the trophy by Australian legend Ken Rosewall - who won the inaugural French Open in 1968. At the age of 19, he became the first teenager to win a major singles title since Pete Sampras at the US Open in 1990.
Lewis Hamilton doubted he would finish Canadian Grand Prix
The pair fought over the position race long, but with even pace, Hamilton had no way past the Australian and settled for fifth. Vettel certainly wasn't convinced that Red Bull had made the right call starting tomorrow's race on the hypers.
