President Mamnoon, Irans Rouhani discuss economic ties, regional security

Putin said Iran has cooperated well in the SCO as an observer and that Russian Federation supports Iran's full membership to the organization.

"But I believe it's a technical issue", he said.

Tensions mounted between the Trump administration and fellow G7 members Canada, Germany and France when the USA imposed steep tariffs on imported metals from the countries.

Battulga said that it is Mongolia's top priority to develop friendly cooperation with the two permanent neighbors of China and Russian Federation.

Trump will skip part of the summit on Saturday as he travels to Singapore to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in hopes of resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.

China is mired in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, while Moscow has deep differences with Washington on multiple diplomatic fronts, including Syria and Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in China for a state visit Friday, his third trip in just over one year as Beijing and Moscow look to promote their special relationship.

"Our countries are definitely concerned about the current situation regarding the Iranian nuclear program", the Russian leader pointed out, adding that "the USA withdrawal from the JCPOA may destabilize the situation".

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and United States leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna.

Liverpool's £53m move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir is OFF
Sky Sports News reporter Wright believes Fekir would be a great addition to the Liverpool FC team given Klopp's style of play. He came on in the second half of that game, which was at Lyon's home ground, to a great reception from the home fans.

U.S. President Donald Trump injected fresh drama into an already tense meeting of the Group of Seven major industrialized nations Friday, calling for Russian Federation, ousted for its the annexation of Crimea, to be reinstated.

Putin says some nations including Austria have offered to host his summit with Trump.

Maria Repnikova, director of the Center for Global Information Studies at Georgia State University in the USA, said China makes Russian Federation look "stronger and more relevant" on the global stage.

While Xi feted his peers with fireworks, SCO members have their own disagreements, with India concerned about China's trade infrastructure project in disputed territory in arch-rival Pakistan.

Xi and Putin also vowed to make "all possible efforts" to preserve the 2015 worldwide accord on Iran's nuclear programme that Trump abandoned last month.

Rouhani said the U.S. was monitoring the global reaction to its withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and a weak response would encourage it to carry on acting unilaterally.

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 three countries are neighbors and traditional strategic partners to each other, and enjoy natural advantages and a good foundation for cooperation, he said.
