  • US trade tariffs are economic sanctions in disguise says Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that dialogue with Donald Trump could be "constructive", in comments released after his USA counterpart called for Russia to be re-admitted to the exclusive Group of Seven club of nations.

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

Trump's protectionist policies that have imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union are likely to become a flashpoint during the meeting with the leaders of Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Italy and the U.S.in La Malbaie, Quebec, Friday and Saturday.

"Both countries really use their relationship to showcase. there is an alternative to the American hegemony and they've been doing that for a while even before Trump", she said.

"Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7,"Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency".

He added that Russian Federation was ready to "develop, deepen and normalize ties with the United States", noting that the next move was for Washington to make.

"I think Putin's probably going, 'Man, I wish Hillary won, '" Trump said.

However, during the meeting with Mr. Trudeau, a senior Canadian official said the President agreed to "accelerate" the NAFTA negotiations rather than pursue bilateral talks.

Putin also welcomed Trump's call to bring Moscow back into the G-7 group of leading industrialised nations.

Washington Is Scrapping Tariff Exemptions for Canada, Mexico, and the EU
Trump announced plans for tariffs on foreign steel and aluminium in March, justifying them on national security grounds. Worries about the deepening trade tensions, however, were offset by a bullish report on the USA economy.

Professor Zhu Feng, director of Nanjing University's Institute of International Studies, also said the award was a clear signal to the USA that if it increased pressure on both countries, it would mean both China and Russian Federation would have no choice but to increase cooperation so they can jointly deal with Washington.

Putin, speaking to reporters in Qingdao, China, where he attended a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, says Trump has voiced concern about a renewed arms race.

Authorities emptied an entire oceanside swathe of the city - clearing out shopkeepers, residents and day-trippers to make way for Xi, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

'It wasn't us who left, ' he said.

China is now locked in an ongoing trade dispute with the United States, which has also imposed tough sanctions on Russian Federation.

He adds Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Both leaders also issued a joint declaration pledging to preserve the global accord on Iran's nuclear programme which the USA withdrew from last month.

Xi and Putin and others pledged their support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal from which President Donald Trump withdrew the USA last month.

He was more more forthcoming about his friendship with Xi during an interview with Chinese state broadcaster CGTN earlier this week.
