this is blind from birth let us president donald trump clashes with his ally over trade behind the smiles attend the g. seven summit in canada as leaders gather for their family photo from someone is missing from this picture also coming up. germany and four other countries are elected to the united nations security council and nonpermanent members berlin hopes the move will give it a bigger influence on the world stage. and germany had to the world coms with the
win under their belt but it's not all plain sailing they only narrowly defeated saudi arabia in their final warm up match before heading to russia. a happy core of os and welcome to the program divisions on display at the g. seven summit in canada leaders of some of the world's most powerful industrial countries clashed with u.s. president dollar trump especially over trade and tariffs the summit's canadian hosts had hoped to focus on economic growth climate change and gender equality before the meeting even began trump tossed another contentious topic into the mix he wants russia to be readmitted to the g seven it was all smiles during this family photo but besides the italian prime minister the other leaders are not on
board with bringing moscow back into the g. seven fold. the scene looks idyllic but as leaders pulled together for the so-called family photo it was clear that one of the men in the middle u.s. president donald trump was more focused on a family feud. leaving washington for the summit trump set the tone for the days to come he let the u.s. allies know what he thought of their relationship for their strong like well we fought with you when the war which they don't mention the fact that they have trade barriers against our farmers they don't mention the fact that they're charging almost three hundred percent of what it all straightened out we'll all be in love again. and then he threw in this surprising tidbit. right here to me in this meeting why are we having a meeting without russia being in the meeting i would recommend and it's up to them
but russia should be in the meeting you should be a part of it a provocation for german chancellor angela merkel she had spoken out against allowing russia back into the group and in canada she pushed back. when his influence i need does we all agreed that the return of russia to the g seven summits columns happen until substantial progress has been made in connection with the problems with ukraine. russia iran climate change world trade the list of issues on the g. seven summit agenda is long but it's far from clear if the leaders will be able to agree on anything substantial besides trumps tariffs on steel and aluminum from allies which splits the u.s. from canada mexico and the e.u. there are strains even within the european bloc the new italian prime minister just at the conte has openly expressed support for president trump. with tensions rising and a possible trade war looming amongst close allies the future of the g.
seven is hard to gauge many observers have said it's likely this summit will end without a joint communique signed off on by all its members. i'm now joined by having a great had from the think tank german council on foreign relations chom says he wants russia back in the g. seven fold why is he so keen on getting moscow back at the table here can avoid thinking that this might be an attempt to divert attention from the conflicts in that the g seven i think trump has understood that the g. seven isn't united against him in this case japan wanted to have closer relations with russia italy as has been said the new government might be open for that so he might have caused some. discussions inside the g seven that stopped people talking about the trade issues that go so in the direction of conflict and war now.
it's too early to do that to take russia back in because the conditions need to be fulfilled and i think the of us have shown if you sign of unity against america it was well in terms of those tariffs we are going to talk about it even if you maybe doesn't want to the french official has now said the u.s. and the e.u. will have some talks in the coming weeks about this is a positive step in that direction towards alleviating a trade war is trump going to potentially throw another monkey wrench in the process i think they talk about tariffs all the while that they should i mean we have just stopped negotiating t.-t. at the transatlantic trade and investment partnership between the e.u. and the us. in which the terrorists would have been abolished anyway so. trump could have had that negotiations on the lower level maybe specifically with certain sectors with the e.u. anyway he wouldn't there was no need to start this this with a bombastic gesture and no announcement of wars and fights and all that he could
have started to negotiate but he wanted to make the initial initial step a bit more uncomfortable for the others speaking of course and consisting of but he's expected to leave this meeting rather early several hours early in fact he'll miss some conversations about climate change and other topics this might mean all seven leaders want potentially be signing the end of summit communique how serious is this i mean this is unique and i think it is a big problem but the g. seven is a very important clump of the former world leaders it's not without china so they have to defend their position there's good reason to believe that there will be more g seven summits and more more of that but. trump is always willing to show that he's able to walk away from the table that he can destroy procedures and organizations that of us hold dear just to have a better outcome for america ok i'll get ahead from probably already is to as he's
having to singapore with the north korea summit on the horizon how are the leaders at this summit looking ahead to that i think they're happy that there is talk that there is an america trying to negotiate and talk itself out of the crisis but nobody hopes i think seriously that communion will give of nuclear weapons because this is the the life assurance that he has and if there is a talk in america we'll take the blame if it goes wrong everybody's fine henry makow from the german council on foreign relations thank you very much. now with years g. seven summit is being held in the canadian province of quebec one of the key industries there is fisheries claire richardson met some people whose livelihood depends on it and who had been looking forward to the g seven tackling climate change and polluted oceans they're the underwater canaries in a coal mine lobsters are particularly sensitive to climate change and the
fishmonger selling them stand to lose a lot if g seven countries can't agree on taking action to stop it we might say yes i think it's important to respect the equations imposed on the companies even if it causes economic pain we can see that climate change is happening from the migration of lobsters and shrimp. with it so that the exam and. protecting the oceans is one of canada's main priorities as it hosts world leaders for a summit in quebec. they had hoped to find agreement on reducing pollution from plastics but now u.s. president donald trump is skipping saturday's meeting on climate change clean energy and oceans i can believe that some some leader are in that agree with like you'd like to give it you don't agree to to take care or and vera most i mean if it's for the next generation. it's another example of how the u.s. has become increasingly isolated from its partners. i think he needs to think about
how his actions are going to impact a huge part of life climate and climate change in general counsel he's. got a lot of power. you have a lot of responsibility when you get back into power. the other six nations taking part in the summit say they share common values including protecting the oceans as the united states is increasingly headed out to sea. china is hosting a two day regional security summit in the seaside city of qingdao leaders from russia iran and other allies will be in attendance chinese president xi jinping welcomed his russian counterpart vladimir putin at an ice hockey game the summit is meant to address rising tensions with the united states over trade as well as washington's withdrawal from the iran nuclear deal the leaders are expected to discuss ways to salvage the agreement and highlight their own cooperation.
