Trump Says Russia Should Be Allowed Back In The G-7

The force is being set up in the wake of the attempted murder of Russian ex spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia on the streets of Salisbury

China and Russian Federation have been moving closer amid heightened tensions between Beijing and Washington on economic and military fronts, and as Moscow struggles with US-led sanctions.

"For China, its best friend has always been Russia, and for Russia, China is a strategic partner, so this award is really a reflection of the special relationship that has existed for a few decades", he said. "We continue to see Russian targeting of American society in ways that could affect our midterm elections". It may also add to concerns in the United States and among allies that the U.S. President, whose campaign team is under investigation for possible collusion with Russian Federation, is too close to the Kremlin.

Over the course of his presidency, Trump has inflamed allies with his isolationist policies, including withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord and the global Iran nuclear agreement.

The call threatens to further strain what was shaping up to be a tough summit for the G7, whose members have also been clashing with the Trump administration over a looming trade war.

"We should reject self-centered, shortsighted and closed-door policies", said Xi, whose own country has been accused of restricting broad access for foreign firms to its huge market.

Trudeau has said the Quebec summit offers the G7 leaders an opportunity to find solutions to their many differences.

"The six other countries of the G7 represent a market which is bigger than the American market", the French president said.

Russian Federation has never turned its back on the G8 (now G7), Vladimir Putin said, speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

As he headed to the G-7 Summit, President Trump threw our ostensible allies another curve.

Speaking from China where Putin was attending a regional security summit, Peskov said that in their last telephone conversation on March 20 the Russian and USA leaders had also mentioned possibly meeting in Vienna.

Earlier this year the White House refused to impose sanctions on Russian Federation that were passed into law nearly unanimously last year and was created to punish Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.

Putin told reporters on Friday that the two leaders had discussed the situation on the Korean peninsula.

"Russia should return to the G8".

But Russia was suspended from the summit of the top industrialized nations in 2014 after its annexation of Crimea, a part of Ukraine.

He will miss the final session on climate change on Saturday and instead fly directly from Charlevoix to Singapore to meet the leader of North Korea in a much-anticipated summit.
