Numerous G7 leaders have been angered by the Trump administration's harsh tariffs on steel and aluminum on national security grounds and the USA leader's shocking claim that Russian Federation - which was kicked out of what was then the G8 in 2014 after its seizure of Crimea - should be permitted to rejoin.
Trudeau had announced just hours earlier that all G7 countries signed the joint communique, and all of the leaders had chose to "roll up our sleeves" and agree upon "consensus language". "I think there are various discussions about alternatives that would not be that, and that would not be entirely destabilizing for a trade deal, and I think we are open to creativity", he said. "It's going to stop or we'll stop trading with them", he declared.
The announcements come as Mr. Trump seeks to make headway on the deep USA trade deficit, saying the country has been taken advantage of for too long, and he is fighting back.
The American leader said a three-country deal would only be possible with substantial changes, and reiterated his interest instead in forming separate two-way trade accords with Mexico and Canada - an interest Canada has made clear it does not share.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said there was broad agreement among G7 leaders that tariffs and other trade barriers should be reduced, though she acknowledged that differences with the United States remained.Читайте также: MIT Creates World’s First Psychopathic AI Named Norman
A senior United Kingdom government source said it stood by the commitments made in the communiqué., while a European Union official at the summit said it would "stick to the commitments made by all participants". "I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7".
As he exited the world summit, Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.
The spat has financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation that could lead to a full-blown global trade war.
There was little expectation of a major breakthrough at the summit - held in the mountainous Quebec village of La Malbaie - on trade given Mr. Trump's temperament and long-held protectionist ideology, but the President insisted he got along well with Mr. Trudeau and other leaders who stood up to him. Canada and Mexico, the other members of the 1994 pact, have been frustrated by the slow pace of talks to renegotiate NAFTA.
In the end, the long charm offensive by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to avoid the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump failed just hours after success seemed closest, with Trump raining insults as Trudeau closed what seemed like a triumphant global summit.
He said that he did not blame G7 leaders for the "unfair" trade deals, but previous United States presidents.
Trump called the summit a "one time shot" for Kim, but expressed optimism at the beginning of talks with the North Korean regime. Trump has been open on his desires for better relations with Moscow.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
