As G7 summit begins Russia's Putin meet China's Xi

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas

"President Trump has placed himself on the wrong side: with the autocrats, the corrupt, and the anti-Americans, who look to Vladimir Putin as a natural ally", said Daniel Fried, a former career diplomat who oversaw sanctions on Russian Federation after its Ukraine intervention.

The SCO was created in 2001 by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Russia, Tajikstan and Uzbekistan.

"I am sure that if such level of development in this area is maintained, our bilateral trade could reach $100 billion this year", Putin suggested.

Friendship Medals, the highest state honor to foreigners, are presented to foreign friends who have made outstanding contributions to China's modernization drive, promoting exchange and cooperation between China and the world, and safeguarding world peace, Xi said when delivering a speech.

The G7 ended in discord on Saturday when Trump clashed with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and said he might hit the auto industry with tariffs.

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.

"As for Russia's return to the G7, G8 - we never left it", Putin said.

Peskov's comments come a day after Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of the world's leading nations, known as the G7, a step that would end Russia's global isolation over its 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

"Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow".

Mr. Putin said last month that the proposed summit between him and Trump was not working out for now and was beset by problems.

But no disharmony was evident during the 2-day summit in Qingdao.

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

Xi said he will work along with Putin to usher in even brighter future to the relations between the two countries.

Putin added that although he met with President Trump at various worldwide venues, they never got an opportunity to discuss Russian-U.S. relations. But there are a lot of countries which are willing to assist us in this.

"All this gives me the grounds to believe that the dialogue can be constructive", Putin said.

"It's important for such meetings - if they take place - to have concrete contents".

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday dismissed criticism by the Group of 7 nations as "creative babbling" and said it was time to start cooperating again.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is hailing a planned summit of the United States and North Korea.

Commenting on the results on the SCO summit, Putin noted the importance of the signed feasibility study for a broad Eurasian economic partnership.
