Taking to the United States president's favourite social media, Twitter, Mr Conte wrote: "I agree with President Trump: Russia should return to the G8".

Trump has suggested that Russian Federation should return to the global group, saying at a news conference Saturday in La Baie, Quebec, Canada: "I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in". Russian Federation was pushed out of the then G8 due to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea four years ago: "We did not (choose to) leave it, our colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to known reasons at some point".

Following a formal welcoming ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in central Beijing, Putin first with Premier Li Keqiang, telling him that Russia-China trade and economic ties have "gained a good tempo, and we are looking for new spheres of cooperation". Independent counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating the Russian Federation meddling, which Trump has denounced as a "witch hunt".

I agree with President Trump: Russia should return to the G8.

"America stands very much alone as they enter this G-7", Heather Conley, director of the Europe program for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told reporters on a press call. "I think it would be good for the world". It has become a powerful impulse for the further development of the Chinese-Russian relations.

The G-7 is made up of the USA and allies Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. He also blamed former US President Barack Obama for Russia's move into that nation. There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organize ourselves.

Mnuchin said Russia's "malign" activities included cyber intrusion into the USA energy grid and other infrastructure; an internet-chewing worm called Notpetya that cost several global conglomerates millions of dollars in damages; and the tracking of and possible interference with undersea communications cables that carry most of the world's telecommunications data.

The president tweeted that he was heading for Canada "for talks that will mostly center on the long time unfair trade practiced against the United States".




Elsewhere in her remarks, May underscored the need to stop having tit-for-tat actions in a trade war between the European Union and the USA which began after Trump imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from key allies.

President Trump is heading up to Canada for the G-7 summit on Friday.

Trump and Putin have met at a formal bilateral meeting in Germany and on the sidelines of a leaders' summit in Vietnam.

The French president did have some private time with Trump before the summit officially started.

"If we're unable to make a deal, we're better off", Trump said.

Adopting an unusually sharp tone about one of France's closest allies, Macron rejected the idea of an American "hegemony".

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sent a telegram to Vladimir Putin in celebration of Russia Day.

Hussain said that China is a reliable friend and steady partner of Pakistan, and relations between the two countries are unshakable.
