Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed criticism of Moscow at the G7 meeting as “babbling” and confirmed he would be happy to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Speaking at a press conference in China following a regional summit Sunday, Putin refused to comment on the G7 final statement but said that its criticism of Russia’s “so-called destabilizing efforts” in the West was “unfounded,” and that “this creative babbling” by other world leaders had so far “led to nothing.”

Politico reported that Putin said he shared Trump’s concern about the possibility of a new arms race, and would welcome a meeting with Trump. The article goes on to state the following:

Putin’s comments follow Trump’s call on Friday to allow Russia back into the G7, which Putin said Russia had “never left,” and that it was “other world leaders who had refused to come to Russia” in the past.

“We need to stop talking and imagining things,” the Russian leader said.
