Merkel calls US retraction of support 'sobering and somewhat depressing'

Eurozone reforms split France Germany By European Interest

"It may not be politically correct to say it, but we have a world to run".

"He learned", Mr Trump said.

Jeremy Corbyn said Donald Trump was to blame for the summit's "failure".

A photo showing Angela Merkel and the rest of the world leaders towering over US President Donald Trump in an improm7 ptu meeting held in between bilateral talks in Quebec, Canada has blown up online, cropping into memes with hilarious and politically suggestive captions. After hearing Canadian prime minister's comments vowing to retaliate for U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum during a news conference, Trump tweeted that Trudeau had made "false statements", and White House officials had harsh criticism for Trudeau during the Sunday morning news programs.

Multilateral action was needed to prevent "tit-for-tat" reprisals, she said, adding that the concerns of countries about unfair trade practices must be "addressed not ignored".

Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement.

Merkel did not know Trump planned to do this and only found out he pulled out from the "arduously negotiated" declaration while she was returning from the summit.

Trump has been on a tear about German trade and cars in particular, bringing up the issues with other European leaders with whom he has met over the last few months, the source said.

Russia has not released its hold on Crimea and has not been willing to negotiate on the Minsk Protocol agreement, which would ease the Russian occupation of the region; most recently, 14 Russian nationals were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for interfering with the 2016 US election, including the former business partner (and suspected Russian spy) of Paul Manafort, Trump's one-time campaign manager.

May thanked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for organizing the summit.

The photo became a sensation online, and many observers felt it underscored the growing tension between Trump and the other G7 leaders.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the United States faces a "united front" on trade issues and found itself "isolated" at the G7 summit.

In a meeting at the White House during the French president's visit to Washington in April, Macron suggested the United States and France should work together to resolve shared trade problems with Beijing, prompting Trump to make his remark, a person in the room told CNN.

The two-day G7 summit ended on Sunday.
