Russian Federation never asked to be allowed back to G8, Lavrov says

Russian Federation never asked to be allowed back to G8, Lavrov says

"It could be that NAFTA will be a different form".

In his meeting, Mr. Trudeau made the case once again against the USA tariffs and pressed Mr. Trump to not levy similar tariffs on Canadian auto exports, an idea being contemplated by the White House.

In his interview to state-run CGTN, Putin described Xi as "approachable and sincere" and "a very dependable man to work with".

"We are not going to live with the deals the way they are", Trump said.

Maybe President Trump's jet-setting weekend has made Russia's leader feel left out.

He also reminisced to a Chinese broadcaster early this week about celebrating his birthday with Xi in 2013: "I won't hide it, we had a shot of vodka and sliced some sausage". "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table". Macron said Thursday on Twitter, "The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be".

China and Russian Federation lead the regional security group, which include former Soviet states, and new members such as India and Pakistan.

"Russia should be in this meeting", Trump told reporters in Washington.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has predicted the G-7 talks will be heated because of the American stance on trade.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte welcomed Trump's idea to bring Russian Federation back, saying that "it is in everyone's interest".

Two of the most powerful Russian and Chinese leaders in decades, Mr. Xi and Mr. Putin, have built closer ties, while U.S. President Donald Trump has labelled both countries as economic rivals, who challenge the U.S.' core interests and values.

The call threatens to further strain what was shaping up to be a tough summit for the G7, whose members have also been clashing with the Trump administration over a looming trade war.

"Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.

The UK was quick to hit back at Mr Trump's suggestion, insisting Russian Federation must "change its approach" before even being considered for membership.

The French president did have some private time with Trump before the summit officially started.

Trump's rejection of the global climate accord and Iran nuclear deal, supported by the European Union and Canada is going to be another flashpoint in the increasingly acrimonious relationship between Washington and its Western allies.

China's Putin fans have always appreciated him as more than a powerful leader, and have given him a number of flattering nicknames, including "Prince Charming" and even "super online sensation", mainly for his athletics and as someone who worked his way up to become so successful.

He will miss the final session on climate change on Saturday and instead fly directly from Charlevoix to Singapore to meet the leader of North Korea in a much-anticipated summit.
