Peskov said the possibility of a Vienna summit was also raised this week during talks in the city between Putin and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who has sought to present his country as a bridge between Russian Federation and the West.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in the coastal Chinese city of Qingdao.

Stressing that Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination remains Russia's diplomatic priority, Putin said the two countries have taken care of each other's core interests and major concerns, actively promoted dialogues and cooperation in political, economic and people-to-people and cultural areas, and worked closely in worldwide affairs. "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".

Putin's remarks follow a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.

According to France 24, authorities emptied an entire oceanside swathe of Qingdao - clearing out shopkeepers, residents and day-trippers to make way for Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Russian and Iranian counterparts. He said he proposed eliminating all tariffs among the assembled nations, but also threatened to completely sever trade relations if he does not get his way. "Russia calls for strict and consistent implementation of this plan", Putin stated.

Maria Repnikova, director of the Center for Global Information Studies at Georgia State University in the U.S., said China makes Russian Federation look "stronger and more relevant" on the global stage.

"We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow", he added. Aside from the dispute over Russian Federation annexing the Crimea from Ukraine, the Kremlin's standing within the global community has been eroded by its meddling in elections in other countries.

"I see this as an acknowledgement and an evaluation of Russia's efforts to develop a comprehensive strategic partnership with China", he said.

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.

"It is the highest-level, most profound and strategically most significant relationship between major countries in the world", said Mr Xi.

The six remaining nations, he said, "represent values" and a "true global market force". "It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues".

His comments ahead of the G7 summit prompted fresh criticism from some USA lawmakers.

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

Rouhani hailed as constructive and important Moscow's role in implementing the nuclear deal.

US President Donald Trump last month announced that the US was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal signed by the Obama administration in 2015 under which Tehran had agreed to limit its nuclear activities and allow in worldwide inspectors in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.
