"I believe it's necessary to stop this creative babbling and shift to concrete issues related to real cooperation", Putin told reporters in the Chinese city of Qingdao, when asked to comment on a G7 joint statement.
Trump followed it up with a second post that targeted Canada's auto and dairy industries: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak".
Putin mentioned Trump directly on the sidelines of the SCO, saying he would like to set up a meeting with his American counterpart: "As soon as the USA is ready, the meeting can take place".
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday criticized the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at a regional summit in China. Trump said it should be readmitted, an idea that was unlikely to gain any traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany.
Notably, Vladimir Putin's personal frustration with the Group had been reported long before the 2014 suspension - the Russian President skipped the world leaders meeting in Camp David, the USA presidential retreat near Washington, DC, in May 2012, and Putin's "loneliness" was a trending world headline during the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland in 2013. He added that a thorough discussion is needed to address the issue.
His remarks follow a report that White House officials were working towards setting up a meeting. "Back in the day colleagues refused to come to Russian Federation due to certain reasons". "They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table." adding, "I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in". The addition of South Asian rivals India and Pakistan have also raised questions about the group's long-term cohesiveness.

Putin said the bloc's new counterterrorism agreement foresees joint drills, exchanging information and conducting coordinated anti-terror action.
Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based SCO has largely served as a vehicle for resolving border issues, fighting terrorism and - more implicitly - to counter American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, there may never have been a president of the United States who is so unremittingly hostile to America's closest allies. The ritualized show of respect toward Putin in China camouflaged an actual lack thereof; but in Europe there is still plenty of genuine interest in and awe of Russia's power-corrupt as it is.
He said that Russian Federation did not choose to leave the G7 and would be happy to host its members.
Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation.
Both Trump and Conte were clear that they want Russian Federation to be readmitted to the Group, despite Moscow's refusal to withdraw its occupation forces from Crimea - which it forcibly annexed from Ukraine in 2014 - and eastern Ukraine, where Russia's armed forces and their local proxies continue to fight a war that has killed almost 11,000 people in just over four years.
He also blamed former US President Barack Obama for Russia's move into that nation.
