Russian Federation calls for implementation of JCPOA on Iran: Putin

Trump's "America first" agenda triggered widespread criticism at the G-20 summit previous year.

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Xi and Putin's statements were in stark contrast to the discord at the G7, where Trump called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak", refused to sign a group agreement about climate change, and would not budge on steel and aluminum tariffs.

The United States and European Union will establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, a French official said on Friday, signalling a modest step forward for bitterly divided allies at a Group of Seven summit in Canada. Trump wrote in one tweet. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

The complicated relationship between Washington and Moscow took another unexpected turn at the G7 meeting in Canada, when President Trump expressed a wish to invite Russian Federation back to the table and bring back the G8 format. He added Moscow will continue to honour its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

At issue now is whether the seven nations can conclude their meeting with a joint statement of priorities.

He told Trump that Canadians "who stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands" do not take lightly the idea that the tariffs are for national security reasons.

Insult America's allies, harm trade and rehabilitate Russia - Vladimir Putin couldn't have asked for a better friend in the White House.

President Donald Trump's trade adviser says: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

Also, Peter Navarro, Trump's trade adviser, criticized Trudeau on Fox News Sunday. The Kremlin has complained that efforts to organise the meeting seem frozen.

Mr. Trump's advocacy for Russian Federation seems a little odd, especially in the midst of what he calls a "witch hunt?".

Notably, Vladimir Putin's personal frustration with the Group had been reported long before the 2014 suspension - the Russian President skipped the world leaders meeting in Camp David, the USA presidential retreat near Washington, DC, in May 2012, and Putin's "loneliness" was a trending world headline during the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland in 2013. Even as the scope of the breakdown over U.S. tariffs became clear, Xi was taking the podium to criticize what he said were new forms of "unilateralism" and "protectionism". Knowing how crucially important the meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has become to Trump, Moscow has tried hard to boost its profile in de-nuclearization diplomacy. He said he'd be happy to return to the G-7 and looks forward to a separate summit with the American president.

Just hours after agreeing to the joint communique with his G7 allies, the USA president tweeted from his plane that he had told his officials to abandon American support for the document in an eye-opening move that could threaten the future of the club.

They present ever-increasing evidence that the Putin regime did so to favor one candidate over another.
