Trump calls for return of Russian Federation to the G7 ‘table’

"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".

But Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table.

When Trump was pressed about the annexation of Crimea, he placed the blame on President Barack Obama for failing to handle the situation. Merkel said on Saturday there must first be progress on a Ukraine peace plan before there is any talk about readmitting Moscow.

President Trump will be meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday, where he said on Saturday he expects to "at least start a dialogue" with the North Korean leader. "Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run".

Trump said he pushed for the elimination of trade barriers, including subsidies and tariffs, at the G-7 meeting.

Leaders of the seven richest nations vowed to send a "strong message" that interference by Russian Federation and other foreign states will "not be tolerated", British Prime Minister Theresa May said, according to SkyNews.

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and USA leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna.

"If they retaliate they're making a tremendous mistake because you see we have a tremendous trade imbalance", he said.

She said: "Where we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so, and air the issue openly and frankly".

A US government report released Thursday found suicide rates inched up in almost every USA state from 1999 through 2016. For one episode of his popular CNN series " Parts Unknown ", Anthony Bourdain traveled to western MA to interview Dr.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the official's remarks about Trump.

The text of the annual G7 joint communique is usually all but finalized before the leaders meet for two days of glad-handing and group photo opportunities, but this year officials were still negotiating even as Trump headed for his plane.

"The relationships were outstanding, but because of the fact that United States leaders of the past didn't do a good job on trade-and, again, I'm not blaming countries, I'm blaming our people that represented our past-it's gonna change", Trump said.

He said he could tell from the smiles of European leaders at the G7 that they knew that "the gig is up" and that they would negotiate terms with Washington.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an global summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality. Canadians, for example, said Trudeau pushed back firmly on Trumps imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Trudeau has made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering.

President Donald Trump continued to blast "bad" trade deals with key United States allies as he left the G7 summit in Canada early Saturday, telling reporters that he would "fix" unfair trade relationships or end them.

But details are scant so far, and clear differences are remaining.
