"I fully agree with him", he said, adding that personal meetings and work by experts are needed to tackle the issue.
The U.S. president had also slammed America's Western trading partners, saying "all of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade". "It would require consensus to bring Russian Federation back and that consensus will just not happen", he said in 2015.
Putin's remarks followed a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting. I think it would be good for the United States.
Since the heads of state of China, Russia and Mongolia held their first meeting more than three years ago, the three countries have centered on aligning China's Belt and Road Initiative with Russia's development strategies, especially its transcontinental rail plan, and Mongolia's "development path" initiative, deepened cooperation and yielded results, said Xi.
The China-Russia relations, standing at a high level, have benefited the two peoples and served as a model of harmonious coexistence of major countries and neighboring countries. "And in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out; they should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table".

China and Russian Federation already enjoy a relatively extensive economic dialogue, which has warmed in several areas since the crisis in Ukraine that contributed to Moscow's suspension from the G8.
"It's true", Putin said.
"Indeed, we are one hundred percent determined to continue cooperation between China and the European Union, but I can add also with Russian Federation as it belongs to the signatory countries, but also with other partners internationally who are committed to preserve the nuclear deal and its full implementation", the senior EU official said. The bloc includes China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan.
Asked for his impression of the Chinese leader for life, Putin said Xi was "approachable and sincere", as well as "perhaps the only state leader who has celebrated my birthday with me". "We have opened both our country and our hearts to the world".
Putin says Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region.
Trump on Saturday withdrew support for a joint statement issued by the other G-7 nations ― Canada, the U.K. Germany, France, Italy and Japan ― just hours after expressing support for it. At this point it's hard to justify adding Russian Federation to the G-7 when we aren't adding an ally like South Korea, not to mention China, India or Brazil, since they all have larger and more globally significant economies than Russian Federation does.
