Putin, Xi Beijing meeting underscores close relationship

Putin WWIII may be end of civilization and that should restrain conflicts

Just hours after issuing a series of aggressive messages about global trade and Canadian dairy practices, Donald Trump has arrived in Quebec to attend some of the G7 summit - his first visit to Canada as USA president.

"With that being said, Russian Federation should be in this meeting", Trump said.

For its part, Russian Federation allows China to show the USA that it has "other options" in global negotiations, she said.

The scale of the crisis between the United States and the other G7 members was highlighted early, when in off the cuff remarks Trump suggested Russian Federation be allowed to join the elite club of rich nations after it was expelled from the G8 following Moscow's annexation of Crimea.

President Donald Trump is calling for Russian Federation to reinstated into the G7 among the world's largest economies.

In today's postings, Trump says he is heading to Canada for G7 talks that will mostly centre on the longtime, unfair trade practices aimed at the United States.

She acknowledged that Canada and the US have disagreed on significant issues in the past - such as the Vietnam and Iraq wars - and still have differences today when it comes to things like climate change and the steel and aluminum tariffs.

According to Sputnik News, Kremlin spokesman Dmitriy Peskov responded to Trump's call for reinstatement, saying, "Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7".

A G7 summit dominated by disagreement over trade between the U.S. and its key allies has failed to deliver a breakthrough as the meeting enters its second and final day.

Trump repeatedly praised Putin during the 2016 campaign.

Trump made his remarks on Friday while departing the White House for what is likely to be a fractious summit with European, Canadian and Japanese leaders.

"Both share scepticism towards American hegemony and distrust USA intentions, both are authoritarian personalistic rulers", he said.

Trump injected further uncertainty recently when he floated the idea of replacing NAFTA with two separate trade deals, one with each country.

Trump joined the leaders of major industrialized nations in an idyllic Canadian resort town after days of escalating conflict over new USA tariffs he slapped on imports of steel and aluminum.

At a joint press conference on Thursday, Macron said: "A trade war doesn't spare anyone". "Maybe we should come up with a new slogan", he said.

European Council President Donald Tusk expressed broad concern about Trump's opposition to the worldwide rules-based order, because it "is being challenged, quite surprisingly, not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor, the U.S".

Meanwhile, in Canada, a growing rift between the United States and its most important allies was on full display. Their alliance grew further as US President Donald Trump stepped up pressure specially on China both on the trade and North Korean fronts.

Trump's first meeting at the summer resort on St Lawrence river is with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, followed by sessions with the full summit, and then a bilateral with the host, Justin Trudeau, in the early evening. "The rules-based global order is being challenged", Mr. Tusk said.

"The American president may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be", Macron said in a tweet. Under Trump, the US has sanctioned several Russians close to President Vladimir Putin and his circle.
