Mamnoon, Rouhani discuss bilateral relations during SCO summit

President Xi Jinping and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Friday agreed to promote greater development of China-Russia relations at a high level.

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.

"We share and agree with the United Kingdom's assessment that it is highly likely that the Russian Federation was responsible for the attack, and that there is no plausible alternative explanation", the G7 statement said.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday hit back at Trump over trade policy and other matters on which the president with other G-7 nations, saying in a Twitter that "maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be".

Alexander Gabuev, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Moscow Centre, said the nuclear cooperation deals were "pure pragmatism and a rare example of a genuine win-win" between the two countries.

On the sidelines of the two presidents'meeting, Iran and China also signed four memorandums of understanding for cooperation in various fields.

China has been the first trade partner of Iran over the past years, he said, adding that enhanced banking cooperation would support the implementation of bilateral agreements.

Vladimir Putin on Sunday followed through on President Trump's call to readmit Russian Federation to the G7 by saying Moscow would be happy to host a gathering of global leaders, according to a report on Sunday.

Lavrov said Russian Federation is "working fine in other formats" such as the Group of 20, TASS state news agency reported.

Now in the wake of the U.S. withdrawal from the pact, "SCO members may use granting full membership to Iran as a way to demonstrate support for (Tehran) and the nuclear agreement", said Dawn Murphy, professor of global security studies at the U.S. Air War College.

"No matter what country has terrorists, we must strengthen our regional cooperation and not allow them to affect regional security", he told reporters, adding that the SCO bloc had stopped "hundreds" of terrorist acts.
