Putin hints at becoming prime minister again in 2024

In remarks seen as being aimed squarely at the United States and President Trump, he told the St Petersburg International Economic Forum that protectionism was on the rise across the world.

Mr. Putin said with China's active efforts to push forward denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and its vital role in resolving related issues, the situation on the peninsula has improved noticeably. "There are various terms, but the meaning is the same - they've become an official part of the trade policy of certain countries".

Indeed, the ongoing investigation of Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election has made it hard for Trump to wrap his arms around Putin.

President Trump said on Friday that the summit might even be held on the originally scheduled date of June 12.

The Russian leader also engaged in a tongue-in-cheek exchange with French President Emmanuel Macron, saying with a smile that Russia could help protect Europe if its rift with the USA widens over Iran. And France wants Russian Federation to use its influence with Iran to ensure it respects its nuclear commitments despite Trump's decision.

Macron, who had travelled to Washington in an unsuccessful bid to persuade Trump to keep faith with the Iran deal, did not explicitly criticise the US leader.

But "breaking the rules is becoming the rule", Putin said in an apparent jab at Trump, who has abandoned a Pacific free trade deal and forced a renegotiation of the USA pact with Canada and Mexico.

Trump has derided the Iran deal as "insane" partly because its restrictions on Iran's nuclear activities begin expiring in 2025. "This was said with regard to Brexit, and we're accused of everything bad". Macron responded on a serious note that France and its allies could stand for themselves.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe also spoke at the forum and called for closer cooperation with Russian Federation.

In the meeting with editors, Putin declined to assess relations between Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, but said the United States should not try to take a hard line with the country. However, some observers have suggested he might seek to have the constitution changed.
