Russian Federation should return to G8 - Conte (2)

Moreover, after departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Donald Trump has slammed Canadian Prime Minister's remarks at the G7 news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, as "very dishonest and weak". Later, the document was made public.

New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Friday he would try to promote "moderate" positions on trade tariffs at a Group of Seven summit where the contentious issue looks set to dominate talks among leaders.

France warned Sunday that "fits of anger" could not dictate worldwide cooperation after US President Donald Trump abruptly rejected a joint statement agreed following a bad-tempered G7 summit in Canada.

A few minutes later, Trump changed his Twitter profile header picture from the G7 family photo to a photograph of himself singing the anthem with members of USA military in Atlanta in January this year - apparently another jab at his summit-mates, considering how far back he had to dig to find that one.

In her own tweet, Green Party leader Elizabeth May says Trudeau is handling what she calls Trump's outbursts and bullying as well as anyone, and that all Canadian leaders need to support the prime minister.

Trump recently ignited a trade dispute by imposing tariffs on his North American and European partners' steel and aluminium exports and repeated a threat to impose tariffs on vehicle imports.

Mr Trump had earlier denied that the summit had been contentious, contradicting what one G7 official described as a bitter harangue between the US President and his counterparts over tariffs.

The leaders of the countries "the Big seven" at the summit in canadian city of Quebec unanimously opposed the return of Russian Federation to the G7 format.

Trudeau said his nation is insulted that Trump unilaterally imposed stiff tariffs on Canada for "national security" reasons.

"I agree with President Donald Trump".

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump said. Free trade is "the way it should be", he said. The noise of Trump's helicopter landing was so loud they had to stop talking for a while, in a scene one official compared to the opening from the US television series M.A.S.H.

Trump's conduct was "actually not a real surprise, we have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal", Maas, a senior member of the Social Democrats (SPD), a partner in Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition, told reporters. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

Trump has repeatedly bashed allies who sell more goods to the U.S. than they buy, though Europeans openly dispute his maths on trade deficits and insist their companies create United States jobs.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the eve of this trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said on CNN.

Freeland reiterated Canada will retaliate to USA tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way, adding Canada will always be willing to talk.

Still, Trudeau also gave an account of his discussions with the US president.

President Donald Trump's trade adviser says: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".
