Putin said Iran has cooperated well in the SCO as an observer and that Russian Federation supports Iran's full membership to the organization.

The SCO gathering comes as US President Donald Trump meets America's closest allies in Canada for a two-day G7 summit, which concludes Saturday.

Russian Federation agreed to strengthen trilateral cooperation in transport, infrastructure, customs and tourism, and facilitate trade and personnel exchanges, said Putin.

Speaking to AFP in Lithuania's capital Vilnius, senior Iranian official Massoumeh Ebtekar said Iran hoped European powers, Russian Federation and China would confirm their willingness to uphold the deal "as soon as possible because Iran can not wait forever".

The US president has repeatedly said he wants to improve relationships with Moscow. That same month, Xi was given a path to indefinite rule when the the Communist-led rubber-stamp parliament lifted presidential term limits.

"As far as I know, the USA president has stated that the United States is considering the possibility of additional regulation of deliveries of the automotive vehicles to the U.S. market".

"It may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run".

As a leader of major country with global influence, President Putin is "an old friend" and "a good friend" of the Chinese people, Xi said. "But he's also a very dependable man to work with".

Mr Xi told media after their meeting that both he and his Russian counterpart felt "the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership is mature, firm and stable".

"Things happen", Putin said.

Mr Putin, speaking during a visit to China, said: "We did not choose to leave it, our colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to known reasons at some point".

Maria Repnikova, assistant professor of global communication at Georgia State University, told CNN that there is an element of political play-acting to their public displays of mutual admiration.

"Definitely, the U.S. has monitored the reactions to its withdrawal from the JCPOA and considers the lack of response to its unilateral withdrawal as not being costly, which will have very bad consequences for the worldwide community", he pointed out.

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and U.S. leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna. Its member states also include four ex-Soviet Central Asian republics, Pakistan and India.

Putin also hit Trump on Sunday for his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year.
