  • Putin teases new arms Lasers & hypersonic missiles in service but ‘that’s not all

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday opened a regional security summit attended by Russian Federation and Iran with boasts of the bloc's "unity", just as a fractious G7 gathering was mired in divisions between Europe and the US. This is particularly true regarding the Korean peace process where China and Russian Federation have both worked in a bold yet dignified capacity to help both Korean states reach an internal rapprochement while both superpowers also seek to address the security concerns of both Pyongyang and Seoul with the aim of the long-term de-militarisation of the Korean peninsula which shares a border with both China and Russian Federation.

Before the medal ceremony, Putin said the two heads of state had enjoyed "fruitful" talks.

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

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as he departs the White House in Washington, U.S., on his way to the G7 Summit in Canada, June 8, 2018.

Just yesterday Trump said Russian Federation should be attending a Group of Seven summit in Canada, a controversial idea that even Moscow seemed to reject.

"And he was the one that let Russian Federation go and spend a lot of money on Crimea, because they've spent a lot of money rebuilding it, I guess they have their submarine port there or whatever", Trump continued.

Russia's membership in the G8 was suspended in 2014, after it illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

"We should reject self-centered, shortsighted and closed-door policies", said Xi, whose own country has been accused of restricting broad access for foreign firms to its huge market.

"For Putin, this is return on his investment, and it's safe to say that his investment has paid off beyond even his wildest dreams".

Xi, whose government is locked in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, said World Trade Organisation rules and the multilateral trading system should be upheld to build an open world economy.

Trump also singled out tariffs on United States dairy products in yet another scathing tweet directed at Canada just before the summit begins.

"Whether you like it or not - and it may not me politically correct - but we have a world to run..."

A spokesman for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Ottawa's position against such a move had not changed with regards to Russian Federation.

Trump pulled out of the 2015 Obama-era accord last month, despite objections from European allies and other nations.

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.
