Xi Jinping says Vladimir Putin is his ‘best friend’

Berlin still has ‘no evidence’ from UK that Moscow is behind Skripal poisoning – reports

Bruising for a fight, President Donald Trump barreled into the Group of Seven summit Friday, confronting longtime USA allies over a burgeoning trade dispute and insisting Russian Federation should be brought back into the fold.

The Prime Minister said the agreement sent a strong message that interference by Russian Federation and other foreign states would not be tolerated.

This year's G7 summit comes at a time, when leaders of seven major economies view the current worldwide order as a historic division between Washington and its major allies in North America, Europe and Asia.

Those leaders are already frustrated with Trump for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal.

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.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G7 countries", Trump tweeted.

Peskov was quick to add, according to the report, that discussions between Trump and Putin on the issue are purely in the preliminary stages.

Trade battle lines were drawn even before he arrived in a series of dueling tweets and statements between Trump and his onetime friend Macron.

Tur said to Ali Velshi, "It does kind of feel like Donald Trump is nearly out to create a new world order".

In one phone call, the Canadian PM scoffed at the idea that Canada posed a national security threat to the U.S., the administration's pretext for imposing the steep tariffs on imported aluminum and steel. Trump again railed against trade deficits with other countries and repeated that he may pursue separate negotiations with Canada and Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. We responded from the very beginning that such personal meetings were not just a possibility but were useful ...

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is hosting the world's most powerful countries at the two-day summit in La Malbaie, in Quebec's Charlevoix region.

The new government in Rome has previously said that sanctions on Russian Federation damaged Italy's agriculture industry and its design and handicraft sectors. On Thursday, Macron threw down a gauntlet to Trump, saying that the rest of the G7 had no problem negotiating without him.

European and Asian stocks indices were down across the board Friday - despite a week of gains in the wake of robust United States jobs data and easing political headwinds in Italy and Spain. Trump will leave the summit early to attend a summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday. "This is in the interest of all", tweeted Conte who was sworn into office last week as the head of a populist coalition that has called for the European Union to forge closer ties with Moscow and for sanctions to be lifted.

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 in his talks with Putin.
