On March 20, Putin and Trump held a telephone call and agreed to hand down instructions to start preparations for a Russia-US summit.

Analysts remarked on the similar leadership styles of the men.

Putin stressed that the World Cup is a chance for visitors to learn about Russia's "identity and culture, its unique history and natural diversity; its hospitable, honest and friendly people".

"Both share skepticism towards American hegemony and distrust U.S. intentions, both are authoritarian personalistic rulers", he said.

"As soon as the USA side is ready, this meeting shall take place, of course, fitting my working schedule". There must be a clear understanding between the leaders of the two nuclear superpowers before some mishap somewhere results in unimaginable catastrophe for both countries and for the whole world. "Economic globalization and regional economic integration are the trend of the times", Xi said.

Putin said disagreements within the G7 should not be overestimated.

"No matter what fluctuations there are in the worldwide situation, China and Russian Federation have always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority", Xi told Putin.

Xi also presented Putin with China's first "friendship medal", calling him a "good and old friend of the Chinese people" during a live broadcast on state television.

On the plus side, they have gotten a president elected in a soon-to-be third world nation, the United States of America. According to Ryabkov, the United States shares this stance.

She further said that the USA tariffs were "illegal and unjustified" and Canada did not believe in using "ad hominem attacks".

The two leaders have previously supported the so-called "two halts" solution, in which South Korea and the US would halt their joint military exercises in return for North Korea halting its nuclear and missile development.

That's "not something we are even remotely interested in looking at", Trudeau said on Saturday.

At this week's G7 summit, where he caused consternation by refusing to sign a joint statement, Trump said: 'I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in'.

And since our allies are the ones with whom we have the most significant ties - economic, military, cultural - they're most often the ones who wind up being the target of his ire as he tries to isolate the United States from the world. He may be right about Russian Federation, but why not China?

After the Beijing visit, Putin will join Xi at a weekend summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao.

Mr Trudeau said: "We are going to defend our industries and our workers".

Xi met one-on-one with Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on Sunday following a two-day regional security summit in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao that also included Russian Federation and former Soviet republics.

Putin told CGTN that the SCO had "small" objectives when it was founded two decades ago but that it was now evolving into a larger global force.

Xi and Putin called the US decision to leave the Iranian nuclear deal "disappointing" in their joint statement, and said it was of "fundamental importance" to protect trade relations with the Islamic Republic against "unilateral extraterritorial sanctions".
