Russian Federation was expelled from what was then called the G8 in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

But Trump on Friday called on world leaders to allow Russian Federation back into the G7, the group of leading industrialized democracies.

The most powerful Russian and Chinese leaders in decades, Putin and Xi have forged closer ties as Trump has labeled both countries economic rivals that challenge United States interests and values.

Earlier this month Israeli officials denied claims by Russia's ambassador to the United Nations that it has reached an agreement with Moscow on the withdrawal of Iranian forces from southwest Syria.

The Russian leader said he shares concerns that Trump has voiced about a renewed arms race, adding that a thorough discussion is needed to address the issue.

"We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow", he added, referring to leaders of the USA, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Canada and Italy. "He is my best, most intimate friend".

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

Speaking at an worldwide summit in the Chinese city of Qingdao on Sunday, Rouhani said the US' withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal poses a potential threat to the world.

Speaking in Qingdao, China, where Putin is attending a regional summit, Peskov said, "there have been no concrete agreements or understandings, and no specific discussions are being conducted now".
