Theresa May has criticised the tariffs and also opposes Mr Trump's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of leading industrialised nations.

European leaders met separately Friday ahead of the G7 summit in La Malbaie, a golf resort north of Quebec City, and presented Trump with a united front "backed by facts and figures" to counter his charge, officials said. But after Russia's intervention in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea, Western leaders sought to isolate Vladimir Putin's government. The Shanghai organization, which Beijing began in 2001 as an alternative to USA -dominated diplomatic groups, includes China, Russia, India, Pakistan and the nations of Central Asia. If Hillary got in, I think Putin is probably going, 'Man I wish Hillary won, ' because you see what I do.

Following the end of the summit, the USA president said he would invite Italy's new PM to the White House, praising him and Italians for the March 4 elections' outcome.

In Monday's action, the Treasury Department said it was blacklisting five Russian companies and three Russian citizens, most of whom have supplied material to or worked with Moscow's Federal Security Service, known as the FSB, the successor to the Soviet Union's KGB. The meeting included the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, France, West Germany and Japan. As soon as the agreements are upheld, we will open the game.

Both China and Russian Federation want to ensure that hostilities don't break out on their borders with North Korea, disrupting the region's economy, creating humanitarian disasters and possibly bringing US troops closer.

On Sunday, Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, accused Trudeau of undermining the United States and its allies with comments at the G7 summit.

"They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", he said.

Merkel and Trump also had a brief conversation at the summit but no bilateral meeting.

Putin, who has previously told Europe he had warned them about the trade threat Washington posed to them, also said that if Trump imposed new tariffs on imports of foreign cars it would have serious consequences for the global economy and especially for Europe.

G7 chiefs have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilise the Korean peninsula, but they are unhappy he pulled out of an worldwide agreement to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Referring to the Mueller investigation, and the possibility it may result in criminal charges against him, Trump maintained he has "the absolute right to pardon myself", adding "but I'll never have to do it because I didn't do anything wrong".

Hussain said that China is a reliable friend and steady partner of Pakistan, and relations between the two countries are unshakable.

It was revealed on the 12th of June that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had sent a telegram to the Kremlin to commemorate Russia Day and congratulate President Vladimir Putin upon his successful rule over Russia for so many years.
