Putin blamed political firestorms that are now engulfing the Trump administration, and offered up a veiled criticism of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, which he said prevents Trump from pursuing stronger ties with Russian Federation.

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

Earlier in the day, speaking at an annual economic forum, Putin sharply criticized Trump's decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal, saying it could trigger risky instability.

Both the European Union and Moscow, signatories of the Iran deal along with China and the United States, want to maintain the accord and fear a return of destabilising, unilateralist U.S. policies in the Middle East.

"We are hostages to this internal strife in the United States", said Putin, according to USA Today. "We have good and fruitful relations with Spain that we want to maintain, and we also want the situation in Spain to normalise and for Spain to conserve its territorial integrity", the Russian president told reporters on the sidelines of the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Pre-tax profit before exceptional items dropped to £580.9m from £613.8m in the year to the end of March. "These changes come with short-term costs which are reflected in today's results".

"It would be completely normal if Macron develops a better relationship with Putin than with Trump, who are two completely different characters".

Accompanied by his wife Brigitte, Macron is set to meet Putin on Thursday at the Constantine Palace outside St. Petersburg, a former royal summer retreat whose magnificent gardens open out onto the Baltic Sea.

Earlier, it was announced French energy major Total would buy a 10 percent stake in a Russian Arctic gas project, showing the Kremlin's ability to find foreign partners despite Western sanctions.

The Kremlin leader said that a combination of sanctions, trade barriers and a lack of trust was hugely unsafe. 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.
