Putin reveals when he will step down as Russian Federation president

"I do not see [any threat] and I do not think that they would do it", Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), answering a question on whether the United Kingdom could introduce restrictions against the Russian debt.

'A spiral of sanctions and barriers is just beginning and is affecting a growing number of countries and companies, ' said Putin.

Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron launched a joint defence of the Iranian nuclear deal on Monday but expressed differences on how to move forward as Trump weighs up whether to scrap it.

"In order to talk about a full denuclearization of North Korea, I believe we should give North Korea a guarantee of their sovereignty and inviolability", the Russian president said.

"Putin decried that the worldwide community could not sort things out with North Korea, asking whether we want another problem on the same scale?"

The Russian leader, who was recently sworn in for the fourth term, mentioned that former President Barack Obama's administration played a pivotal role in negotiating the Iran deal. Macron responded on a serious note that France and its allies could stand for themselves.

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.

The presence of Macron and Abe and their statements in favor of cooperation were important for Putin, indicating that the USA -led efforts to isolate Russian Federation face increasing obstacles.

Abe also said it is necessary to make a US -N.

The Kremlin said Putin and Macron were both calling for "strict observance" of the hard-fought 2015 agreement after a phone call between the two leaders. However, some observers have suggested he might seek to have the constitution changed.
