a joint declaration to commit to a reduction of tariffs and subsidies and to reform the world trade organization. very openly the devil is in the details which is why many of the current trade talks including those with the u.s. will continue despite this joint declaration and that's why this very open discussion was necessary. but may not be very convincing for the nearby g. seven protesters the accuse the leaders of the world's seven largest economies of an auction taking a company trip to canada instead of taking care of the world's many problems. for more we're joined by did obvious claire richardson who is following the g. seven summit for us from quebec city so clearly looks like we will actually see a sign a joint statement at the end of this what kind of common ground have the g seven found. the common ground seems to be
9:04 pm
a desire to show a face of some kind of stability even though it's quite clear that there is still deep divisions between at the countries taking part in the g seven countries in the g. seven summit and the united states and the very fact that we are still talking about whether or not we would even see a mutually signed statement at the end of this meeting is quite unusual often leaders know exactly what sort of talking points they're going to come out of this meeting with before they even go into it it's meant to express common values and things that are relatively innocuous topics most of the time but of course this year is different because we've had u.s. president donald trump here and back differing from his canadian hosts and the other leaders taking part and making it difficult to come to a consensus even to release this joint statement at the end of the meeting now trump in his statement said quote the gig is up i'm going to assume he meant the jig is up specifically talking of. trade practices and tariffs how do the other

a meeting of the leaders to discuss things like protecting the oceans and stopping a climate change and this was really seen as a snub the fact that he was so eager to go to singapore to meet the north korean leader what would be a historic meeting between a sitting u.s. president and a leader of north korea but nonetheless it showed his european and other allies where his priorities really lie that perhaps he was more eager to claim a political victory at home in holding this meeting that he was to actually smooth over the differences with some of the united states' closest allies auclair you mentioned trump leaving the summit early on that this was viewed as a kind of snub are these other g seven leaders the g six are they are you thinking they're happier with him not there are we know that there are some divisions on display as we have said how are they now getting along without him. well there has been talk that this meeting is that now is called the g six plus one
