Trump asked. "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

Trump said on Friday that Russian Federation should have attended a Group of Seven summit in Canada over the weekend, an idea that even Moscow seemed to reject saying it was focused on other formats.

Putin has been driven closer to China by a sharp decline in relations with the West after Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and support for a separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine.

China and Russian Federation lead the regional security group, which includes former Soviet states and new members India and Pakistan.

The G-7 still represents almost half the world's total gross domestic product, but it has slipped behind the nations of the SCO, when economic power is measured using a formula that adjusts for the relative value of currencies and their purchasing power.

Macron said, in part, "sometimes we disagree but we always speak and share I think common concerns and common values, and we share a willingness to deliver and get results together".

Taking stock of the on-going turmoil in war-ridden Afghanistan, Putin said, "It is crucial that we fight the terrorist threat emanating from that country in unison, curb drug production and trafficking and render aid to Afghanistan in its national reconciliation, economic revival and stabilisation".

He said: "The relationship between Russian Federation and China is a friendly, neighbourly one, developing in states in the spirit of over-arching strategic partnership".

Membership includes Canada, the U.S., UK, Italy, France, Japan and Germany.

France's president Emmanuel Macron also put a fearless face on the encounter.

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.

That's why he sees it as such a great and brilliant victory that he pulled us out of a series of global agreements: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Paris Climate Accord, the Iran nuclear agreement.

Kim has met Xi twice since Trump first agreed in March to attend the summit.

Under Trump, the United States has abandoned its traditional role in the G-7 as an advocate for freer global trade, instead pushing more protectionist policies.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov earlier told TASS that the Foreign Ministry was making comprehensive preparations for a meeting between the Russian and U.S. presidents.

"I would say that the G8 is a more meaningful group than the G7, absolutely", Trump said. Trump said to reporters.

President Trump doesn't want anything to do with that.

Asked in Qingdao about the G-7's tumultuous meeting Friday and Saturday in Canada, Putin focused on the rift between Europe and the United States on tariffs, which he said "is more significant than any emotional outbursts".

The president reiterated the idea that a trade agreement could take a different shape, namely, individual deals with Canada and Mexico. I think it would be good for the United States.

"Our relationship is very good", Trump said.
