seven summit german chancellor angela merkel chastising trump or is of this photograph of the u.s. president cool and collected a photo duel captures the acrimonious split as the leaders met in cannes. thanks for joining us i'm marrying evans dean north korean leader kim jong un has arrived in singapore for tuesday's highly anticipated summit with u.s. president donald trump came landed shortly before three pm local time and was greeted by singapore's minister for foreign affairs trump is set to arrive from qu├ębec later today tuesday's summit will be the first time that a north korean leader has met with a sitting u.s. president thousands of journalists and onlookers flocked to watch his motorcade make its way through the city and to the st regis hotel where the delegation is
12:02 pm
staying. or earlier having to take of the german council on foreign relations join me in the studio to talk about these developments he said even though both trump and kim are going to be in singapore today the meeting is not likely to take place immediately. i think it has been a kind of race to be to be there on the spot earlier and for trump it was an opportunity to slip the face of the other g seven members believing that summit earlier than than expected writes a tramp is due to arrive later today and he's described this upcoming summit with the north korean leader as a one time shot at peace but yet other times he's been more cautious saying that it's only kind of a preparatory get to know you type of meeting so what kind of a summit is it going to be it has to be clear that this meeting itself is one of the greatest concessions that the americans could make to the north koreans they. the kids that if you can family has as trite for generations really to be seen as.
12:03 pm
a negotiation negotiation partner and i level with the americans and i wanted to talk by literally most of the time so this is a historic development an opportunity of course to to use this concession to pressure more from from kim that kim would give up the nuclear weapons which are in a way life issue insurance for him is unlikely though and so i see that trump is seeing this as a risk that if it goes wrong he wouldn't want to repeat it all right paying they could do stay with us and just from i'll be talking to you again shortly. well the singapore summit has overshadowed the end of the g seven meeting in canada but there was an unusually acrimonious end to the annual event which brings together seven leading industrial democracies after two days of tense talks all seven signed a final communique seemingly finding agreement on the need for rules based trade
12:04 pm
but then u.s. president trump with drew his country's endorsement with a tweet is the first time a g seven gathering has ended without a joint statement is the german chancellor lecturing the u.s. president is the u.s. president being belligerent whichever way you look at this photo posted on instagram by angle america's office you can't ignore the tension that tension was evident before during and even after the g. seven summit ended in canada donald trump made sure of that he'd already angered his allies by slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from canada the european union and mexico and he used the g seven meeting to demand better trade deals for the u.s. while warning against retaliation. tell you to make it
12:05 pm
a mistake because you see we have a tremendous trade imbalance so when we try and bring our piece up a little bit so that it's not so bad and then they go up right the difference is they do so much more business with us than we do with them that we can't lose that you understand we can't listen and with that trump left the show five hours early but even with his warning in mind justin trudeau still felt obliged to promise his own retaliatory tariffs. highlighted directly to the president that canadians did not take it lightly. that the united states has moved forward with significant tariffs on are still in aluminum industry particularly did not take lightly the fact that it's based on a national security reason that it's kind of insulting. those comments
12:06 pm
infuriated president trump he tweeted from on board air force one that he would no longer endorse the joint summit statement and threaten to impose even more tariffs he said pm justin trudeau acted so me can mild jewing on g seven meetings only to give a news conference saying that u.s. tariffs what kind of insulting very dishonest and weak the canadian prime his office has sought to play down the frac but with the threat of an international trade war a step closer it doesn't look like any of these leaders have much to smile about and having to go from the german council on foreign relations of here with me to talk about this now so donald trump abruptly retracting his support for the joint statement at the end of the g. seven lashing out at the host country canada is this kind of disarray a sign that this very important annual gathering. is falling apart when
12:07 pm
it is historic to have so much such a level of conflict in that important meeting. i would say the g. seven is a very important institution it has forty years on his back so it is it is obvious that these strongest countries with the strongest economies they can make a change in international relations and global governance and that we will keep on trying but this meeting will be an example of how not to do it now having i'd like to talk to you about this photo from the summit that's gone viral published by the german government showing the german chancellor on the america will sort of with their hands on the table leaning in sort of an imposing position towards donald trump. there's been a lot of chatter about this photo what do you think it tells us i think it's a clear sign of whole the arguments where were carried on most of the other
12:08 pm
countries were critical of what. trump was doing especially the europeans because of the trade issue of us where possibly more cautious but sitting down. blocking the other way he is isolated and he knows that and i think it is a weakness that he doesn't want to look so isolated so he did hate this photo well it should be mentioned that the u.s. published its own photo in fact from the very same moment we should say the very same scene but from a different perspective where the german chancellor is not visible at all and in the center is trump himself with a very sort of haughty kind of smirking look on his face is this a sign really of a different narratives that we're seeing about the same situation it's all communication and it must be clear trump sees himself not as a president to defend the g seven but to defend growth and jobs in america and this
12:09 pm
is the signal he wants to send not so much to the other g six but to his only electorate to the people in america but these are more. and what he could have achieved in being co-operative or in the negotiating about the tariffs i mean that would have been much better for america i think. should forget that the europeans and the americans have been negotiating about abolishing all tariffs in the transatlantic trade and investment partnership that he was the trump dropped so he could have could have had it better or could have initiated negotiations without much bombast and it wouldn't have looked so ugly well despite what was visibly a tense summit trump himself insisting that there wasn't a kind of acrimonious atmosphere and after all he did agree to the joint statement initially what was that statement so the statement said some and make sure i'm so important growth is how important this is to create jobs and help those who are
12:10 pm
most vulnerable. a few words about global governance but when it came to the climate and the my mental protection there were paragraphs saying america wants that continue to to export fossil fuel and the europeans and the others want that so the whole document gave a good picture. about the discord at the meeting but it also made clear that most of the g seven actually have the same agenda to follow all right having to take up from the german council on foreign relations many thanks indeed figuring with a. now russian president vladimir putin says he's ready to hold a summit with u.s. president donald trump if washington is willing he made the statement at a meeting of the shanghai cooperation organization in qingdao china's president xi jinping hosted world leaders including iranian president hassan rouhani and indian prime minister narendra modi the iranian leaders that he appreciates efforts by
