That ethos, driven by center-left politicians from the US and Canada, is pretty much the exact opposite of Trump's desire for bilateral, transactional, anything-goes deals that privilege culturally similar partners.

He added: "The President wanted to send a clear, unambiguous message that we find that type of behaviour unacceptable, so we cancelled the meeting".

The Trump administration accused Russian Federation of non-compliance with the 31-year-old Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty following the shots fired at the Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait last week.

The 1987 INF deal did not cover China and was created to eliminate short- and intermediate-range missiles on Europe's doorstep. "But right now, they have not adhered to the agreement", he said.

According to the President of the United States Donald trump in relations between the U.S. and China achieved significant progress thanks to his meeting with President of China XI Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.

Nuclear experts have said there is strong evidence Russian Federation is violating the INF treaty and the U.S. is justified for criticizing Moscow in this regard, but also warned ripping the deal up opens a unsafe door for Russian Federation.

Trump and Putin had initially been expected to have formal talks at the G20 summit, where the INF was likely to have been a topic of discussion.

"But unfortunately, as you know, this meeting did not take place".

Russian Federation had said it was ready to discuss nuclear disarmament at a planned meeting between Putin and Trump on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina.

Trump's reference to the Defense Department's "crazy" $716 billion budget underscores something of an about-face for the president.
