On day of summit with Trump, Kim also greets Russian President Putin

British Prime Minister Theresa May

Summit host Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau sided with his European and Japanese colleagues against the USA leader and his "illegal" levies on steel and aluminum imports.

While there have been disputes over policy, analysts say the current dust-ups between the Trump administration and longtime US allies point to a potential shift in worldwide dynamics.

As any unbiased observer can tell, western sanctions, demonizing Putin, and attempts to isolate Russian Federation on the world stage haven't worked.

French President Emmanuel Macron had labeled the summit a success before Trump's Twitter posts, saying there was relief within the G7 that an escalation of the trade dispute had been avoided. "And the population is of course much bigger - half of the planet", Putin said. When Kim announced the suspension of tests, they congratulated him, while Russian Federation urged the US and South Korea to curtail their drills.

Putin also said they discussed Iran but didn't provide details.

Mr Trump has said he is open to having a summit with Mr Putin, who U.S. intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Mr Trump win.

"All of these countries have been taking advantage of the US on trade", Trump said.

Trump also said he intends to issue more pardons, including to the late boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Trump contends that other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade".

Canada's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland expressed outrage that Trump had invoked a national security justification for his global tariffs, even on imports from close U.S. allies.

Putin also spoke of the industrialized nations, which was the G8 with Russian Federation until it was suspended from the group in 2014 when it annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine. "With that being said, Russian Federation should be in this meeting", he said.

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

"Yes, sometimes we disagree on issues but when we disagree because of the nature of our relationship we're able to have that frank and open discussion".

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.

"Let's leave the G7 as it is...it's a lucky number at least in our culture", he said.

In the week leading up to the G7 (Group of Seven) meeting, many were starting to call it the G6 +1, since Trump was doing everything in his power to alienate the other 6.

"Canada charges the USA a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!" the president tweeted Friday.

"Pursuing the conversation. Engaging, keeping the dialogue alive, now & ever". You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run.

Trudeau addressed Trump by his first name off the top of their meeting and offered warm greetings.

Trump injected levity into his photo-op with Trudeau before the start of their meeting. Under Trump, the United States has abandoned its traditional role in the G-7 as an advocate for freer global trade, instead pushing more protectionist policies.

But then Trump turned conciliatory. "We're actually working on cutting tariffs and making it all very fair for both countries".

Previous G7 summits have seen large-scale anti-globalization protests, but Trump was a main target of the demonstration as masked anarchists set fire to U.S. flags and those of other G7 nations.

Before the two leaders went behind closed doors, someone shouted a question at the prime minister to ask if he was disappointed the president meant to leave the summit early on Saturday.
