The Skripals were in critical condition for weeks before recovering.

"The U.S. efforts to impose its policies on others are expanding as a threat to all", Rouhani told the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), a regional security grouping led by China and Russian Federation where Iran has observer status. "I believe that the ball is in America's court".

Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed during a visit to Austria this week the possibility of Vienna playing host to a summit with his USA counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Saturday.

"And in the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out - they should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table", Trump added. "As long as the terrorists are active, the region will not achieve its development goals", said Rouhani, adding, "fighting terrorism requires full cooperation and coordination among all countries of the region".

This comes after Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz proposed Putin and President Trump meet in Vienna. According to a report by Politico, Trump last spoke to Putin on March 20.

Earlier during the visit, President Mamnoon held a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, where the two leaders held in-depth discussions related to Pakistan-China bilateral relations and regional and global issues of mutual interest.

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

While Donald Trump is in Canada getting the cold shoulder from G7 leaders, Russian President Vladimir Putin is receiving accolades in China.

Professor Zhu Feng, director of Nanjing University's Institute of International Studies, also said the award was a clear signal to the U.S. 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.

Pole Sitter Vettel Says ‘I could have been even faster’ in Qualifying
When he brought his Ferrari out for qualifying a day later, his problems - and the rest of the field - were behind him. Hartley crashed out early at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after an opening lap collision.

He emphasized the need for the group to closely follow the situation in Afghanistan to fend off the threats posed by militants in the country.

A photograph capturing Macron and Trump shaking hands on Friday showed the imprint of the French leader's fingers left on the president's hand, suggesting he gave Trump a particularly forceful grip.

"As soon as the US side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule".

"The president of the United States himself has repeatedly said that he considered such a meeting appropriate, and I confirm that this is indeed the case".

"Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation?"

In his meeting with Putin, Rouhani said a "more serious and important" dialogue between Russian Federation and Iran was needed regarding the nuclear deal following Washington's "illegal" withdrawal from the pact, according to a Kremlin transcript.

After the USA withdrawal, Iran wants assurances from the remaining parties that its interests are guaranteed or it will resume nuclear activities with a higher speed.

Now in the wake of the US withdrawal from the pact, "SCO members may use granting full membership to Iran as a way to demonstrate support for (Tehran) and the nuclear agreement", said Dawn Murphy, professor of worldwide security studies at the US Air War College.

During the meeting, President Mamnoon expressed the hope that all parties of the Iran nuclear deal would continue to implement the agreement and uphold their commitments.
