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 left the u.s. as allies know what he thought of their relationship with their strong god like well we fought with you in the war three 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. what it all straightened out we'll all be in love again. and then he threw in this surprising tidbit. right here
2:03 pm
you see in this city 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. with his influence i any does we all agreed that a 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 us from canada mexico and the e.u. there strains even within the european bloc the new italian prime minister just
2:04 pm
epic 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 and without a joint communique signed off on by all its members. joining me now is our correspondent claire richardson and come back thirty clare good to see you trumpets calling for russia to rejoin the g. seven how big a shadow has been cast over the entire meeting high of a well these g seven meetings are not meant to be surprising generally the countries who are meeting together have hashed out some kind of understanding of what's going to come out of them before they even sit down together so it certainly came as a major surprise when we heard it from calling for russia to be readmitted after it was suspended in two thousand and fourteen perhaps even more surprising the fact that the italian prime minister seemed to support this idea we heard chancellor
2:05 pm
angela merkel here on the sidelines say that the european union countries had agreed before this conference that this was not going to be an issue that was on the table that conditions had not been met for any kind of conversations about russia rejoining the group now an issue that is on the table tariff the gulf as wide as ever between the united states and its allies or has there been some positive movement absolutely will these steel omentum tariffs that went into effect at the end of last month have been one of the most divisive issues that we've seen here that have really isolated the united states there's a widespread belief among the united states allies that these were unfair trade practices canada in fact called it the tariffs illegal and there's a concern that that basically these tariffs and the way that the united states has treated its allies by imposing them really undermines the rules based international order that trump is not being an honest broker in this system and we have even been hearing a call to the g six plus one
2:06 pm
a reference to the fact that there is unity between the six countries and the one is standing out on its own as the united states. standing on its own trump is expected to leave the meeting early the leaders generally sign a joint communique at the end of the day what are we expecting to happen with that when he's not even there that's right we know that he's going to be leaving early ahead of a meeting that was meant to address issues like climate change and how to protect the oceans on his way to singapore for the historic summit with the north korean leader kim jong un it seems highly unlikely that without there you're going to have the kind of consensus all seven signatures needed to actually put out this joint statement at the end again that's unusual and often it's very clear even ahead of the summit what that's going to say because it represents the shared common values of these groups now with trump on his way out and with his with the way that he has handled trade and climate in the past and the increasing isolation of the united states it seems more possible that instead of this joint statement at the end of the g. seven we could just see
2:07 pm
a single sided statement issued by the canadian hosts where you mentioned that he's heading off to singapore for that format with the north korean leader what our expectations there a freshly when it seems that he can't get on the same page with traditional allies . well it certainly does send a message that he is rushing away from his european partners you know the groups that back him the most in his foreign policy for some of the most complicated issues facing the world at this time that he would really need their support to deal with and instead he is rushing away from this meeting where they are all gathered in canada to go to singapore to meet with that the leader of north korea so i think that itself sends a strong message that trumps priorities are perhaps more aligned with getting a deal that's perceived as a political win at home than it is in maintaining good transatlantic relations and relations with the other allies in the g. seven group w correspondent claire richardson thank you for your insight.

while the news did not come as a great surprise the german foreign minister said he wasn't expecting such an overwhelming majority one hundred eighty four votes in favor out of a total of one hundred ninety. two but i know that's yet to be confirmed with one hundred eighty four votes as a terrific result for those of us that shows that the international community has great confidence in germany and want to live up to our responsibilities and take a stand on difficult decisions without shying away from the. fabric and then most added that germany will be heavily engaged in conflict prevention peace building and peacekeeping operations such as the ongoing deployment in mali but analysts say the condition of the german military is not up for such maneuvers they warn that expectations of germany to resolve wars in syria and ukraine along with the crisis with iran are specially high at a time when other countries appear to be retreating from international engagement.
