Rouhani and Putin met in Qingdao, China, where the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit meeting is being held.
"President Trump has placed himself on the wrong side: with the autocrats, the corrupt, and the anti-Americans, who look to Vladimir Putin as a natural ally", said Daniel Fried, a former career diplomat who oversaw sanctions on Russian Federation after its Ukraine intervention.
Speaking about the Skripal case, discussed at G7 summit, Putin noted, that "nothing new" was said on the matter, stressing that "it is necessary to stop chatter and move on to cooperation".
"The two leaders also discussed the current global situation and agreed on the need to focus on upholding principles and rules of worldwide law and amicably resolving various global and regional crises through diplomacy and negotiations". According to White House statements, Trump last spoke to Putin on March 20.
