Iran’s Rouhani criticises US ‘unilateralism’ over nuclear deal

Russian Federation was pushed out of the then G8 due to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea four years ago.

President Donald Trump suggested ahead of arriving at the G-7 summit Friday that the group offer a seat at the table to Russian Federation.

Donilon, who served under former president Barack Obama, was responding to a clip in which Trump made the case for including Russian Federation. Iranian state television broadcast an interview with Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran's nuclear agency, live from the Natanz uranium enrichment plant with three domestically built centrifuges clearly labeled in English in the background. In general, I believe it is a technical issue.

Relations have hit such a low that a key question now is whether the seven countries can agree on a joint statement of priorities at the conclusion of the meeting.

The French and Canadian leaders have each vowed to address the tariffs with Trump at the summit.

Tension has been building over a year of policymaking that has distanced the United States from traditional allies, including by Trump's decisions to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear agreement. Xi also stressed the importance of China and Russian Federation working ever closer together as both nations are permanent members of the UN Security Council and therefore must continue to coordinate at ever higher levels in order to establish protocols for peace at the highest levels of multiple global institutions.

Speaking in Qingdao, China, where Putin is attending a regional summit, Peskov said, "there have been no concrete agreements or understandings, and no specific discussions are being conducted now".

In a symbol of close China-Russia ties, Xi on Friday gave China's first friendship medal to Putin.

In May, the president announced his administration would impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the European Union - all of which announced retaliatory tariffs against the recent days.

Mongolia stands ready to work with China and Russia to implement trilateral cooperation consensus and launch the China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor construction as early as possible, while promoting cooperation in sectors such as infrastructure and energy transportation, said Battulga.

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

Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal is another bone of contention.

The U.S. also recently sold American-made Javelin anti-tank missiles to the Ukrainian military, to help combat the pro-Russian separatists who have been active in the east of the country since Russia annexed Crime in 2014.
