Merkel: G7 agree on commitment to rules-based trade

Representatives of the countries of the European Union at the G7 meeting in Quebec agreed that the conditions for the withdrawal of Russian Federation into the group of countries with advanced economies have not yet been implemented, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel, reports Reuters.

Earlier, the office of French President Emmanuel Macron said that the European member countries of the G7 had unanimously opposed the call of the US president to restore Russian Federation in this institution.

The two-day summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, has ended in disarray with Trump refusing to endorse the joint statement from the G7 leaders and threatening further tariffs against other nations.

President Trump seemed unconcerned about ruffling a few feathers Friday at the annual Group of Seven nations summit in Canada. "It's highly unlikely there will be a final communique", a G7 official said on condition of anonymity.

The image was shared shortly after Trump held a press conference before departing the summit to head to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Now...we are going to fix that situation. "Preach Chancellor, preach!", "As US we apologise for his childish behavior", "Show him who's the boss Angela", a social media user said. "Now, the relationship that I've had is great, so you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN". It puts Shinzo Abe in a difficult position - the Japanese premier has tried hard to cultivate a warm relationship with President Trump and the two are said to have met at least 10 times since he was elected to the White House. Angela and Emmanuel and Justin.

The other G7 leaders met without Trump for the rest of the day, discussing climate change and global development.
