The German Chancellor called FOR the summit Russia - USA

The German Chancellor called FOR the summit Russia - USA

"There remain good reasons to fight for the transatlantic partnership", she said, adding that the current round of trade tariffs that the United States and European Union have imposed on each other did not signal the end of a partnership.

The British leader echoed disappointment from other leaders that President Donald Trump first agreed to a communique for "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade" and the reduction of "tariff barriers", but later tweeted he wouldn't endorse the deal.

Trudeau later said he reiterated to Trump that tariffs will harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. While many said that the picture sums up Trump's time at G-7, several others called it a "power dynamic".

A German finance ministry spokesman said: "We have made significant progress with our French friends towards a reform proposal for the euro zone and we will continue our talks next week".

Other G7 countries lobbied unsuccessfully at the summit for the U.S. oto reverse its tariffs on imported steel and aluminium imports.

"This looks like an episode of Celebrity Apprentice where Trump is about to fire Angela Merkel because her strudel marketing plan fell through", US-based comedian Tim Young tweeted. National Security Adviser John Bolton and other aides also look on what appears to be a tense moment. "That was put out by my people", Trump told Stephanopoulos.

The US leader, who is in Singapore for a landmark summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, said America was paying more towards the cost of NATO than fellow members.

Mr Trump on Saturday threw the G-7's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Mr Trudeau, and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry. He explained that "with regret", Canada will impose "equivalent" retaliatory tariffs on the USA, effective July 1. Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, accused Trudeau of undermining US interests at the summit, calling Trudeau's actions "a betrayal".

Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support. But the summit host, Trudeau, whose nation was among those singled out by Trump, pushed back and said he would not hesitate to retaliate against his neighbor to the south.

"International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks", Macron said in a statement.
