Vienna May Host Trump-Putin Summit

BEIJING CHINA- MAY 15 Chinese President Xi Jinping attends a news conference at the end of the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

Mr Putin arrived for a three-day state visit during which he will attend the Qingdao Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation on the weekend.

Rouhani praised China and Russian Federation for their continued efforts to maintain the nuclear deal.

China is mired in tough negotiations with the United States to avoid a trade war, while Moscow has deep differences with Washington on multiple diplomatic fronts, including Syria and Ukraine.

The 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, lifted that barrier.

"The recent example of such unilateralism and the defiance of the decisions of the global community by the USA government is its withdrawal from the JCPOA", he said, referring to the nuclear agreement by its official name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Trump announced the USA would leave what he called the "horrible" Iran nuclear accord in May.

Xi, in a solemn manner, awarded the medal to Putin.

"China and Russian Federation always firmly support each other in defending their respective core interests", Xi said, adding that the two countries "play a pivotal role in establishing a new type of worldwide relations and building a community with a shared future for humanity". Iran is an observer member.

Chinese premier Xi Jinping has awarded his country's Friendship Award to Vladimir Putin, calling the Russian president his "best, most intimate friend".

Iran is now an observer member of the SCO, though it has long sought full membership.

Putin, who has previously told Europe he had warned them about the trade threat Washington posed to them, also said that if Trump imposed new tariffs on imports of foreign cars it would have serious consequences for the global economy and especially for Europe.

Putin also praised joint efforts for peace in the world and affirmed that on the major issues of security, China and Russian Federation stand united. "Because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", he told reporters. Putin stated that the penultimate goal in terms of economic relations between the two countries is integrating and harmonising the One Belt-One Road initiative with the Eurasian Economic Union in order to create and expand a dynamic free trading zone throughout the wider east Asian and Eurasian space whose potential can unleash productivity throughout the region.

China may, however, be hindered from gaining robust support for its project at this summit due to India, the only SCO member that does not endorse it, she noted.

The JCPOA was officially not on the agenda for the SCO, which aims to increase regional security and stability through trade, investment and development cooperation.

"No matter what country has terrorists, we must strengthen our regional cooperation and not allow them to affect regional security", he told a press conference Friday, adding that the SCO bloc had stopped "hundreds" of terrorist acts.
