QINGDAO, China-China's President Xi Jinping warned against unilateralism and trade protectionism as he, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Central Asian leaders used a regional meeting to criticize USA policy.

"I can confirm that President Trump voiced concern about a new round of arms race in our latest call", Putin said.

Russian Federation was pushed out of the then G8 due to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea four years ago.

"The U.S. president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting", he said.

Speaking at the start of his meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the summit, Rouhani hailed close Iran-Russia ties.

This is Mr Putin's first visit this year to China, which Beijing billed as "boasting great significance in planning the future course of China-Russia relations".

Professor Zhu Feng, director of Nanjing University's Institute of International Studies, also said the award was a clear signal to the USA that if it increased pressure on both countries, it would mean both China and Russian Federation would have no choice but to increase cooperation so they can jointly deal with Washington.

"The recent example of such unilateralism and the defiance of the decisions of the global community by the US 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 calls Trudeau ’indignant’ ahead of G7 summit
French President Emmanuel Macron warned Trump the G7 could form a group without the U.S. and that " no leader was forever ". And at the same time, the USA president seems more at home with autocrats than with Washington's traditional allies.

"Myself and President Putin agreed, in the face of a complex global situation, that China and Russian Federation will increase mutual support and coordination in worldwide affairs, and deepen strategic cooperation".

Elsewhere in his address, the Iranian president warned of the threat posed by terrorism, separatism and extremism to the world, calling for an increase in intelligence exchange between regional countries in a bid to weaken terrorist groups. "Please, we will be glad to see everyone here in Moscow", Putin told reporters in China where he attended an economic summit and met with President Xi Jinping.

"As for the United States' illegal walkout from these agreements, a far more serious and important dialogue between our countries is required", TASS quoted Rouhani as saying.

He said that the USA exit from the nuclear deal warrants an "important and serious discussion between our two countries".

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

"At any rate, we are ready for this", Putin said Thursday in an interview published Saturday, according to the New York Daily News.

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

Putin said that Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region.
