Russia China partnership at best level in history: Putin

Mikhail Metzel  TASS

"Remember the previous time I left the presidential post, I also plan to stick to the rules this time", he said, in a possible hint that he could repeat his earlier move to the premiership in 2024.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination is developing at the best level in history and the prospect is very good.

Both the European Union and Moscow, signatories of the Iran deal along with China and the United States, want to maintain the accord and fear a return of destabilising, unilateralist U.S. policies in the Middle East.

"If worldwide agreements are revised every four years it would offer zero horizon for planning", Putin said. They will meet with Russian and French executives at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, Russia's leading business event and a showcase for Putin.

Bilateral relations "are developing despite all the current complications".

Moon, Kim Discuss Scrapped Summit as Trump Signals Optimism
The leaders of North and South Korea met Saturday for the second time in a month amid efforts to get a potential U.S. It seems many South Koreans are willing to hold on to their newfound optimism, and give Pyongyang another chance.

Accompanied by his wife Brigitte, Macron is set to meet Putin on Thursday at the Constantine Palace outside St. Petersburg, a former royal summer retreat whose magnificent gardens open out onto the Baltic Sea.

Trump's promises during the 2016 campaign to take a more diplomatic approach toward Russian Federation have been complicated in part by the main Russian Federation probe being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller, and inquiries into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

The United Kingdom will barely make a decision to introduce sanctions targeting the Russian sovereign debt, as such developments are not within the framework of the official position of London, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said.

In a short statement, the Prime Minister's Office said that Dr Mahathir received a phone call from Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at 11.45am today.

Putin and Macron met in France previous year, just weeks after Macron's inauguration. However, some observers have suggested he might seek to have the constitution changed.
