Putin: Co-operation with China at unprecedented level

Russian President Vladimir Putin meets with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the SCO Summit in Qingdao Retired US Army colonel levels stunning accusation about Trump's relationship with Putin

Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice on Sunday called it "disgraceful" for President Donald Trump to blame his predecessor President Barack Obama for letting Russian Federation get away with its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

The proposal was supported by other leaders present, the official said.

President Donald Trump's trade adviser says: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

Separately in a meeting with President Mamnoon Hussain, President Xi said China is willing to intensify high-level contact and strategic communication with Pakistan.

Expectations for a major breakthrough on trade at the summit, however, remain low, with USA allies focused on avoiding rupturing the G7, which in its 42-year history has tended to seek consensus on major issues.

Under the plans agreed by the UK, US, France, Germany, Canada, Italy and Japan at the summit in Quebec, there will be greater co-ordination to identify and respond to threats including cyber attacks and other breaches of global rules. "We have little tests every once in a while when it comes to trade".

Just to make clear how much contempt he has for this whole exercise, Trump left the gathering early, meaning he not only skip the meeting on climate change (of course), but he wasn't around for the traditional conclusion, when the members craft a joint statement and hold a press conference and photo opportunity where they show their unity by standing side by side. He'll leave Canada to head to Singapore, where he's scheduled to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a historic summit next week.

In response, the European Union is preparing new tariffs set to hit U.S. exports ranging from jeans to bourbon whiskey.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has voiced her support for a G7 statement which highlighted the need to keep sanctions on Russian Federation.

Putin also said they discussed Iran but didn't provide details.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs.

The spat has financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation. Trudeau responded by saying the North American Free Trade Agreement was "in good shape", despite the fact that talks around renegotiating that deal have largely stalled.

"The high level of Azerbaijan-Russia bilateral relations, which clearly reflects the fruitful cooperation and mutual activity on the widest range of issues, is particularly gratifying".

Russian Federation was expelled from what was then called the G8 in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

The contacts have emerged amid a deepening Justice Department investigation into whether Russian banker and lifetime NRA member Alexander Torshin illegally channeled money through the gun rights group to add financial firepower to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential bid.

Macron and Trudeau both were expected to have formal meetings with Trump later in the day.
