Putin welcomes Trump-Kim meeting in Singapore

US president wants Russia readmitted to G7 Putin welcomes Trump-Kim meeting in Singapore
Lisa Bryan | 13 June, 2018, 19:24

Putin added "I hope that you will have lasting memories, not only of the matches of the best teams and the skills of the players, but also of your acquaintance with Russian Federation - its distinctive culture, unique history and rich character and her hospitable, honest and friendly people". G7 leaders demanded Saturday that Russian Federation stop what they described as attempts to undermine democracy and support for the Syrian regime as they closed the door on Moscow's readmission to the club.

The report said the message from Kim was sent to Putin and the people of Russian Federation on the occasion of Russia's National Day which falls on June 12.

Putin said on Sunday he thought it was important that the two men meet and said he shared Trump's concerns about the risks of an arms race developing between Russian Federation and the United States, something he said officials from the two countries needed to discuss.

"We are simplifying the mutual availability of goods and services, improving customs regulations, eliminating unnecessary administrative barriers, and implementing joint projects in energy, transport and agriculture", Putin said.

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after his talks with Putin on Tuesday. He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March. "Everyone demonstrated solidarity with London over a certain event in Salisbury but nothing concrete was said again", Putin said. "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".


He emphasized that the bloc's members, who also include China, four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan, are anxious about the US move.

Earlier Sunday, Putin criticized the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit. He added that Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

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.

Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based bloc was originally conceived as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.
