  • Retired US Army colonel levels stunning accusation about Trump's relationship with Putin

Russian Federation was expelled from what was then called the G8 in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

Putin has been driven closer to China by a sharp decline in relations with the West after Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and support for a separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine.

Trump arrived at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec on Friday amid tensions with his counterparts over tariffs the United States recently slapped on Canada, Mexico and the European Union, citing national security risks.

Donald Trump has arrived in Quebec to attend some of the G7 summit - his first visit to Canada as USA president. "We need to reject selfish, short-sighted and closed policies, uphold the rules of the World Trade Organization, support the multilateral trading system and build an open world economy". "The leaders of the two countries have determined the further areas of development of bilateral relations, and have exchanged their opinions on the worldwide issues of common interest", Geng told a press briefing.

USA trading partners have been furious over President Donald Trump's decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda.

Just hours after agreeing to the joint communique with his G7 allies, the US president tweeted from his plane that he had told his officials to abandon American support for the document in an eye-opening move that could threaten the future of the club. He added: "We have to straighten it out". She said the two leaders exchanged pleasantries and briefly discussed trade.

While he attended the Canada gathering, Trump showed up late and the White House said he planned to leave early, adding that a deputy assistant to the president — a mid-level aide — would remain in his place for the rest of the meetings.

Then, Trump and Macron met again on the sidelines of the summit Friday evening.

Tweeting in English, Macron stressed: "No leader is eternal".

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all the countries of the current G7".

Xi and Putin called the USA decision to leave the Iranian nuclear deal "disappointing" in their joint statement, and said it was of "fundamental importance" to protect trade relations with the Islamic Republic against "unilateral extraterritorial sanctions".

"We urge Russian Federation to cease its destabilizing behavior, to undermine democratic systems and its support of the Syrian regime", the leaders said in a statement at the end of their two-day meeting in La Malbaie, Quebec.

"Our relationship is very good".

"This used to be the G8 because Russian Federation was in it, and now Russia's not in it", Trump said outside the White House. "Please, we would be happy to see everyone in Moscow". On Friday morning, he appeared in no hurry to leave for Canada, walking out of the White House more than half an hour late and taking questions from reporters for almost 20 minutes.

"I agree with him", he said. "Economic globalization and regional economic integration are the trend of the times", Xi said.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered to visit Washington for an assessment of EU-US trade to help resolve the dispute, an official said. Ali was convicted in 1967 of avoiding military service.

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

Trump said he had a list of 3,000 names for possible pardon consideration.

Trump's reversal, announced while he was en route to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, sent his G7 partners scrambling.

Pruitt, Trump said, "is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA". Some diplomats were even floating the possibility publicly that a communique could be included that didn't involve the United States.
