President Xi Jinping confers upon Vladimir Putin ‘highest state honour of China’

The U.S. president is lashing out on several fronts.

Russia was ousted from the elite group in 2014 as punishment for President Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea and its support for pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine.

Aside from the United States, the G7 consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Britain. "In the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russian Federation out, they should let Russian Federation come back in".

Russian Federation was invited to join the world's largest industrialized democracies in the 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union when the West held out hope that it could become a successful democracy.

Hours before he boarded Air Force One to fly to Quebec for the G7 meeting, U.S. President Donald Trump launched a series of fresh salvos at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and called on Russian Federation to be readmitted to the exclusive club of leading industrial nations.

It was pushed out of Mogadishu in recent years but continues to control rural areas in the south and central regions. The U.S. said its personnel had provided advice, assistance and aerial surveillance during the mission.

He has also refused to condemn the Russian strongman over the Kremlin's interference in the US presidential election, at one point suggesting he trusts Putin's denials of wrongdoing over the findings of his own intelligence agencies.

A Kremlin spokesman said they were interested in "other formats", apart from the G7.

Trump's comments on agriculture, his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks.

U.S. President Donald Trump has called for readmitting Russian Federation into the Group of Seven (G7) leading industrialized nations, a call that puts him directly at odds with some of the United States' closest allies.

"This is weak", Senator Ben Sasse said. "He is a thug using Soviet-style aggression to wage a shadow war against America, and our leaders should act like it".

Just after 6 a.m., Trump used the social media platform to accuse Canada of charging USA customers astronomical tariffs on dairy products.

The interview highlighted Putin's effort to continue to show personal deference to Trump even as the overall relationship between Moscow and Washington plumbs new depths.

The talks are aimed at reviving a stalled peace process in eastern Ukraine.

"Canada will not change its mind when it comes to the absolutely illegal and unjustified application of tariffs on steel and aluminum, not only coming from Canada but the steel and aluminum sold by all the G7 allies", Ms. Freeland said.

"President Putin is the leader of a great country who is influential around the world".

U.S. Trade Is Trump's Main Focus at G-7 Gathering
Trudeau has denounced the "national security" justification for the new tariffs. "He's sticking to his guns". Kudlow says Trump "hates multilateral" treaties. "The lines are open".

Mongolia stands ready to work with China and Russia to implement trilateral cooperation consensus and launch the China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor construction as early as possible, while promoting cooperation in sectors such as infrastructure and energy transportation, said Battulga. "This is in the interest of all", tweeted Conte who was sworn into office last week as the head of a populist coalition that has called for the European Union to forge closer ties with Moscow and for sanctions to be lifted.
