Russia's President Vladimir Putin looks on as China's President Xi Jinping points during Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China June 10, 2018.

Commenting on the G-7's statement, Putin said: "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".

In March, the United Kingdom accused the Kremlin of using a deadly nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy on British soil.

Russian Federation was booted from the then-G8 in 2014 over its annexation of Crimea, which world leaders condemned as "illegal".

Trump's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G7 came amid increasing tensions between the US and key allies, as well as the president's increasingly warmer stance on Russian Federation.

"We have massive trade deficits with nearly every country, we will straighten that out", Trump said.

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.

"I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump claimed, "but with that being said, Russian Federation should be in this meeting".

The G7 in Canada was also an opportunity for Conte to meet European Union leaders for the first time.

Putin, however, voiced his support for Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday.

Putin also criticized Trump's decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal, saying the withdrawal could "destabilize the situation" in the Middle East.

He emphasised 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 United States move.

Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in China for a state visit Friday, his third trip in just over one year as Beijing and Moscow look to promote their special relationship.

Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the U.S. over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, whose country is an observer member, also attended the meeting as he seeks Chinese and Russian support following the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

"We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow", he added, referring to leaders of the USA, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Canada and Italy.

"China's "highest honor" is bestowed on foreigners who have made" outstanding contributions" to the country's modernization drive and helped maintain world peace, Xi said.

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

While he's taken a tougher stance on traditional USA allies, Trump - who remains under investigation as part of an inquiry into potential collusion between his presidential campaign and the Kremlin - has charted a warmer course with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Rouhani, for his part, denounced the "illegal" U.S. withdrawal from the global nuclear deal with Tehran.
