Putin dismisses G7 criticism as 'babbling', calls for cooperation

Putin dismisses G7 criticism as 'babbling', calls for cooperation

Theresa May has criticised the tariffs and also opposes Mr Trump's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of leading industrialised nations.

Trump pulled out of President Barack Obama's landmark nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies.

The proposal was supported by other leaders present, the official said.

Putin said: 'The US president has repeatedly said that it's reasonable to hold such a meeting.

Mrs May hopes to use the summit to avert a wider trade war, insisting she wants a "proportionate" response from the European Union to the "unjustified" USA tariffs. The G-7 began in the 1970s as a way for the most important industrialised democracies to gather together to discuss their common economic interests, with the group including the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Mr Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10. "We have little tests every once in a while when it comes to trade".

The last meeting between Trump and Putin was a brief exchange in Vietnam last November.

Trump's "America First" message to allies has hardened since he brought hardline national security adviser John Bolton on to his team. Trump was due to arrive in Singapore on Sunday ahead of a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!", the president posted on Twitter.

Mrs May's attempts to strengthen the global response against Russian Federation comes ahead of a meeting with Italy's new prime minister Mr Conte who has called for sanctions against Moscow to be eased.

They have "resolutely supported the other's core interests. and jointly proactively participated in worldwide affairs and global governance", Xi said.

"Our position has not changed", said Adam Austen, a spokesman for Foreign Affairs.

The spat has financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation. Canada and Mexico, the other members of the 1994 pact, have been frustrated by the slow pace of talks to renegotiate NAFTA.

Russian Federation and China agree on the need for peace on the Korean Peninsula, while recent contacts between Moscow and North Korea "confirm the willingness of Pyongyang to engage in constructive work", Putin said.

Hussain said that China is a reliable friend and steady partner of Pakistan, and relations between the two countries are unshakable.

Although Trump has spoken frequently of making Russian Federation a closer ally, his administration has nevertheless imposed numerous sanctions packages for human rights violations, meddling in the 2016 US election and other acts.

"Russia should be in this meeting, " Trump said.

Macron and Trudeau both were expected to have formal meetings with Trump later in the day.
