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

The G7 group consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the US.

Leaders of the G7 nations spent Friday hunting for a face saving formula to mask the deep rift inflicted on the Western alliance by United States president Donald Trump's assault on global trade rules.

In our small world, which has been made smaller with the internet and cell phones, we can't afford to go it alone.

By ordering his representatives to back out of the communique, Trump appeared to be asserting his oft-stated aim of upsetting the status quo whether by pulling out of the global climate accord or the worldwide nuclear deal with Iran or threats to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement.

By doing so, Trump will skip meetings on climate change, energy policy and oceans.

Putin also said they discussed Iran but didn't provide details.

Meanwhile, there may never have been a president of the United States who is so unremittingly hostile to America's closest allies.

"No matter what fluctuations there are in the worldwide situation, China and Russian Federation have always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority", Xi told Putin at the start of their formal talks. He added: "We have to straighten it out".

Trump's remarks were the latest show of disunity between the USA and the other six nations meeting at a resort on the Saint Lawrence River this weekend. Trump wrote in one tweet. If Hillary got in, I think Putin is probably going, 'Man I wish Hillary won, ' because you see what I do.

Nearly immediately after US President Donald J. Trump caused a major rift in the Euro-Atlantic alliance by castigating his closest allies in the UK, Canada, and Germany by refusing to endorse a communique that called for an worldwide, rules-based trade regime, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte joined Trump in further infuriating the Western alliance by for Russia's return to the global forum.

Singapore agreement will end Cold War, S. Korea president says
Mintaro Oba, a former US State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism. Perhaps Trump wasn't the one people expected to be making peace, but Americans think this is the best strategy to take.

The Prime Minister said Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation - thrown out of the group of leading industrialised nations in 2014 - should not be readmitted until it could demonstrate a change of course.

The potential meeting would be the third between the two.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump told reporters it would be "very easy" to make the case for tariffs on auto imports using the rationale that they threaten national security.

Speaking to AFP in Lithuania's capital Vilnius, senior Iranian official Massoumeh Ebtekar said Iran hoped European powers, Russian Federation and China would confirm their willingness to uphold the deal "as soon as possible because Iran can not wait forever".

The report said the message from Kim was sent to Putin and the people of Russian Federation on the occasion of Russia's National Day which falls on June 12.

Putin's remarks follow a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting. President Trump and I work together. At the same time Trump said, "I'm not above the law".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said. Ali was convicted in 1967 of avoiding military service.

That's why he sees it as such a great and brilliant victory that he pulled us out of a series of worldwide agreements: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Paris Climate Accord, the Iran nuclear agreement.

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

Trump plans to leave the summit four hours earlier than originally planned to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said.
