President Donald Trump is calling for Russian Federation to reinstated into the G7 among the world's largest economies.

Controversial trade tariffs imposed by the US were set to dominate the talks but last night US President Donald Trump said he believed progress had been made.

For its part, Russian Federation allows China to show the U.S. that it has "other options" in worldwide negotiations, she said. Russia was kicked out of the group, which is now known as the G7, after the Russian annexation of Crimea.

That comment has Trump squarely offside with this fellow G7 leaders, including Canada, who view Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula and its meddling in western elections as a major worldwide security concern.

As the Eastern leaders meet in China, the G-7 summit, which brings together the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Japan, is taking place in Montreal.

The Italian prime minister was due to meet the leaders of France, Germany and the UK before the main summit in a session seen as a European "huddle" created to present a united front to President Trump, who has imposed trade tariffs on the EU and disagrees with the bloc over a nuclear deal with Iran.

In today's postings, Trump says he is heading to Canada for G7 talks that will mostly centre on the longtime, unfair trade practices aimed at the United States.

He called Canadian PM Justin Trudeau "indignant" and took aim at French President Macron as well.

In the last week, Trump and Trudeau have exchanged tough words over trade after the USA imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and Europe.

Trump hosts first iftar dinner at White House
An hour to sunset, the road leading to the White House was cordoned off as guests from the diplomatic community began arriving. The groups say Trump's heated rhetoric has contributed to an increase in bullying and discrimination against Muslim Americans.

The Russians didn't appear interested in Trump's offer.

Vienna has been discussed as a possible venue for a summit between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that Trump was turning USA foreign policy "into an global joke". "We need the president to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries, and to treat each accordingly", he said in a statement.

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

Russian Federation and China have responded to the US national security strategy describing them as America's top adversaries by vowing to further expand their economic, political and military cooperation.

Despite the current G7 turmoil, Tusk said more unites the group than divides it.

The Manoir Richelieu is the site of the G7 leaders summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

"Both share scepticism towards American hegemony and distrust U.S. intentions, both are authoritarian personalistic rulers", he said.

"The president will travel directly to Singapore from Canada in anticipation of his upcoming meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said in a statement.
