overshadow the two day summit u.s. president donald trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports have antagonized many of the g seven leaders and the trade war has spilled over into the twitter sphere president mccall of france fired the opening salvo saying the american president may not mind being isolated but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be trump fired back accusing canada and france of imposing massive tariffs and putting up non monetary barriers against u.s. exports to their countries. well for more now let's bring in our brussels correspondent bound who's following the story beth help us out here what is trump referring to there what's he talking about when he says massive trade tariffs and non monetary barriers against the u.s. . maybe he's referring to two things canada mexico and china already have
10:03 am
retarded three measures in place against the steel and other million tariffs trump has imposed and you with a follow suit in july but he might also referred to the deal about terrorists which is in place for many years already with the european union that terrorism car imports those ways and they are also some measure as concerning cultural products so that is a tariff regime and maybe now the brands this unfair and of course the e.u. is open to renegotiate these things but that has to be both thought of to poach and so father has no offer from the from the americans and they also stopped all talks about teach hip this famous tariff and tariff agreement that was negotiated between the e.u. and the obama administration ok so there are a lot of issues on the table that now the french president manuel mccall he seems
10:04 am
to started this this twitter dispute anyway suggesting that the u.s. to be left out of signing any agreement between the summiteers could this summit end up being dominated by disputes with the us. but i would say this summit could be the last g. seven summit as we know it in this form and it does make sense from a european standpoint point of view to negotiate with somebody or to to meet with somebody who says no to almost everything which is on the table of the g. seven b. a trade to be had foreign policy be it the environment so this is what micro is referring to they can act as a g six and maybe's go if you shop for other allies around the world of trump is not willing to do that so this is a very very severe spat in the g seven b. never have seen that before last year in italy trump was a kind of rehearsing this g. seven summit he just listened but this time it seems that is this is the beginning
10:05 am
of the end what about germany chancellor merkel has so far managed to stay above the fray what role is germany likely to play at this summit. but the chancellor herself has not issued a tweet or something like that just not test daya but i guess she's also somewhat upset or angry it was drummed and you can see that from the economy minister he was doing interviews this mon he says. it was never so open if we achieve anything at the g. seven summit so he's also you know referring to the possible end of this film it doesn't make sense if the west and as i'm not standing together ben thank you so much to badly get that in brussels. well it's not just america's closest allies who are bracing for a showdown at the g. seven g. seven summit in quebec today left wing protesters have been gathering in quebec
10:06 am
city the provincial capital a two hour drive from the resort where the g seven leaders will meet now their anger is directed at political leaders globalization and a lack of action on climate change. as world leaders gather in a luxury resort town this new woman wants them to remember the indigenous people who lived in canada first. the sixty two year old says they should be focusing on how to stop ravaging the mountains and cutting down trees on the reserve where she lives. i want the leaders to stop selling our lands because we still need to go into our forests and practice our incest all rights to go fishing to go hunting to go pick wild fruits. she's joining protesters in the first demonstration against the summit taking place in quebec. this is a march bringing together
10:07 am
a wide range of interests but all believe the g seven leaders are wasting time and money without making any real progress and putting on a show that distracts from the biggest problems facing society today. and burial is smoke that goes and it's not democratic what they're doing in actual fact they are doing the same to protect the environment i would like the g seven and all the other countries of the world to do more against plastic with a stop start cleaning the sea for starters. but they're not optimistic that any of these goals will be achieved. the protesters here come from diverse groups and backgrounds but they are united by one common grievance they think that the leaders at the g. seven summit are not qualified to speak about the issues on the agenda and if they don't have the credibility to discuss things like gender equality and climate
10:08 am
change. hosting the summit is also costing canadian taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. and this year it looks set to be more dysfunctional than ever before as the traditional allies struggle to find common footing with u.s. president donald trump on even the most basic of issues. well the u.s. the u.s. president has a couple of summits on his agenda donald trump says he would consider inviting north korean leader kim jong un to the white house if next week's summit between those two leaders goes well trump also said attitude is more important than preparation as he gets set to negotiate the denuclearization of the korean peninsula the u.s. president made the comments after a meeting at the white house with japan's prime minister a part of a flurry of diplomatic activity in the run up to the summit donald trump welcome to washington with the news that he's on off relationship with north korea looks to
10:09 am
be very much back on having canceled the singapore summit two weeks ago he appears now to believe that it could be the start of an unprecedented era of peace in northeast asia i hope the upcoming meeting in singapore represents the beginning of a bright new future for north korea and indeed a bright new future for the world the deed nuclearization of the korean peninsula would assure in a new era of prosperity security and peace for all koreans in north and south and for people everywhere trump also left the door open for more talks with the north korean leader even on home soil if the summit does go well will you mean inviting north korean leader kim jong il to the united states well the answer is yes to the second part of your question but certainly if it goes well and i think it would be well received i think he would look at it very favorably so i think that could happen. all i can say is i am totally prepared to walk away i did it
10:10 am
once before much thank you but before the singapore summit trump faces more tough diplomacy when he heads to the g seven meeting in canada so what does japan want out of the singapore summit we put that question to michael penn he's president of the shin get sued news agency in tokyo. well. obvious basically probably pushing trump for two specific points one is that he wants to make sure that the issue of the abductees the japanese abductees to north korea is brought up and that kim is pushed to resolve the issue how much resolution is actually needed on that is a matter of debate but from the japanese point of view it's an important issue and the other has to do a short range missiles you know the united states is homeland security is not threatened at all by kim's short range missiles and so
10:11 am
a deal might be made that leaves them in place from the perspective that's not a good thing because those short range missile missiles short range missiles can still reach japan quite easily so this is something he's probably also pushing trump about the personal chemistry always plays a role in these things what is the personal relationship between shinzo the japanese prime minister and president trump there in the u.s. can they work together on global issues do they see. in a way that will allow them to work out their differences over trade. and get together on north korea. right well you know there's probably no world leader who has worked harder to make a relationship with trump that than ave has in fact he was the first world leader to meet with trump even before he was even or before he became president while he's president elect so you know are they basically from the beginning made
10:12 am
a calculation that making a very strong personal relationship with trump was the way to best advance japan's interests and he's been very very harshly say flattering to the president and doing everything he can to to keep keep on his good side now this policy seems to have worked for the first year but now it's beginning to slide on policy issues now we're seeing a trend make decisions and to move in directions that abbay doesn't want so we're seeing the limits of that personal relationship as far as obvious concerned at this point in time michael thank you so much for your insights michael penn there president of the shing at sioux newsagency he was talking to us from tokyo thanks. now let's catch up on some of the other stories making news around the world today russian president vladimir putin is in china for a three day visit aimed at boosting military and economic ties between was received in beijing with full honors by president xi jinping russia has been focused on

you wanted to merge you'd only have to walk across the street basically for the talks but people i talked to said it's way too early for that both banks are in trouble that's why you're having these rumors and they have to do their homework in their own house first and they're both in the midst of slashing thousands of jobs of reorganizing if there was a merger that would have to end first before they could do another move that's what people tell me are you saying and of course both banks are in trouble have been in trouble for quite some time what are investors those banks saying about the possibility of a merger. i think they're split up on this some small investors say you have merged the two slash costs and have them pool their strengths but big investors i think they're waiting they don't see the time has come either that the share prices are way too low for such a move as this it would not generate very much profit for the big investors and the
