Russia China partnership at best level in history: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomes Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Kremlin in Moscow

"If global agreements are revised every four years it would offer zero horizon for planning", Putin said.

On Saturday, Putin criticized the ongoing US investigations into the possibility of ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

President Macron on said he hoped Donald Trump would return to Iran nuclear negotiations but that for now French companies would have to decide for themselves how to react to renewed US sanctions against Tehran.

The French and Russian leaders will "take the time for an in-depth, one-on-one discussion", the French Presidency said in a statement.

Japan hopes the activities will pave the way to settling a decades-long territorial row over the islands, and ultimately to signing a post-World War II peace treaty.

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum serves as a platform for the discussion of key issues in the world economy, regional integration and new developments in new industrial and technological sectors.

But when it comes to the disputed islands, it is still unclear whether the two countries will be able to come up with a "special framework" that does not compromise either side's legal position on the islands' sovereignty.

Abe has been pushing for a way forward in the dispute that centres on the four most southern of the Kuril Islands, which Japan calls the Northern Territories.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe also spoke at the forum and called for closer cooperation with Russian Federation.

Abe and Putin also confirmed how far the eight-point economic cooperation package, which Abe proposed two years ago, has advanced.

On tensions with Britain over allegations Russia was behind the March poisoning of a Russian former spy in Britain, Mr. Putin said there should "either be a joint, full-value, objective investigation or simply stop talking about this subject because it doesn't lead to anything except worsening relations".

Noting that this year marks the China-Russia year of local cooperation, Mr. Putin stressed that vibrant communication at local level has offered even greater impetus for bilateral ties.
