Putin, Xi hail all-time high'in ties, sign $3 billion nuclear deals

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, center, speaks with US President Donald Trump, seated at right, during the G7 Leaders Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018.

Ahead of Trump's arrival, French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted suggesting the global group could issue a communique at the end of the summit that leaves out the United States.

Russian Federation was suspended from the group - then known as the G8 - in 2014 after the majority of member countries allied against its annexation of Crimea. The group, which welcomed new members India and Pakistan, as well as the presidents of Iran and Mongolia, pledged to increase cooperation on energy and agriculture and create more favourable conditions on trade and investment. The US president has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who US intelligence officials claim directed Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. And I think on trade, there is a critical path, there is a way to progress altogether, ' he said, speaking in English. He says gender equality must "cut through" everything the G-7 does.

"There is a feeling, I think, over the last few months that that approach has not borne fruit, and that they haven't really gotten anything for that friendly approach", Wright said.

"Russia should be in this meeting, " Trump said.

Mr Xi said the two countries have "always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority direction". The G-7 began in the 1970s as a way for the most important industrialised democracies to gather together to discuss their common economic interests, with the group including the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

The president's move to reject the communique contradicted a statement from Trudeau earlier, in which the prime minister announced "we have released a joint communique by all seven countries".


We have to treat this very accurately and carefully, such phenomenon has its place in the world, it is developing!

These nations have more people, more land and, Putin said, more economic power when output is calculated by purchasing power parity, than the G-7, a grouping of US allies, mostly in Europe.

Putin's comments come as Trump's relations erode with key allies, including lashing out Saturday at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who expressed opposition to Trump's trade policies at the conclusion of the summit in Canada. "Today, friendly Russian Federation successfully resolves issues of improving public administration, sustainable development and modernization of the economy, improving welfare of the people", President Aliyev said in his message.

They have "resolutely supported the other's core interests. and jointly proactively participated in worldwide affairs and global governance", Xi said.

Reports said the Kremlin has reached out to Austria about hosting a meeting between Trump and Putin sometime this summer.

"I agree with him", he said.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore for talks with the North Korean leader, but he remains focused on the G-7 conference of allies he just left behind in Quebec and the question of free trade. "The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out".
