Trump keeps G7 attendance short at tense summit

No matter how worldwide situations change, China and Russian Federation always firmly support each other in defending their respective core interests, deepen cooperation in all areas, jointly and actively participate in global governance, and play a pivotal role in establishing a new type of worldwide relations and building a community with a shared future for humanity, Xi said. They should let Russian Federation come back in, because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table.

Russia was ousted from the elite group in 2014 as punishment for President Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea and support for pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine.

Trump's comment was in line with his unusually friendly stance toward Russian Federation, despite evidence that it interfered in the 2016 election to help his campaign.

The Italian prime minister was due to meet the leaders of France, Germany and the UK before the main summit in a session seen as a European "huddle" created to present a united front to President Trump, who has imposed trade tariffs on the EU and disagrees with the bloc over a nuclear deal with Iran. Under Trump, the United States has abandoned its traditional role in the G-7 as an advocate for freer global trade, instead pushing more protectionist policies.

"There is no doubt that foreign interference in our democratic institutions and processes, and other forms of hostile activity, pose a strategic threat to our shared values and interests", British Prime Minister Theresa May said at the G7 Summit on Saturday. The White House then announced Trump would skip some of the G-7 sessions.

Trump also fumed about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as their differences on trade and tariffs have been publicly revealed.

Trudeau said he and Trump have disagreed over Trump's call for Canada to open up its supply management system, which protects dairy, poultry and eggs farmers, during the hard ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"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.

Trump's comments on agriculture, his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks.

"The six other countries of the G7 represent a market which is bigger than the American market", the French president said.

The Manoir Richelieu is the site of the G7 leaders summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

The commander in chief plans to skip the climate change and environment portion of the G7 and leave early for Singapore for his historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. So far the prime minister has said only that Italy remains a committed member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and a special ally of the U.S., and that he will push for a review of sanctions against Russian Federation.
