'Welcome to Russia,' Putin tells WCup fans, teams

Russian President Vladimir Putin says counterterrorism efforts are a priority for a regional grouping led by Moscow and Beijing. He says: "That's the way it should be".

"The common European position is against the return of Russian Federation", one senior aide to Macron told reporters, although the leaders did leave open "the possibility of establishing dialogue" with Moscow.

"Russia should be in this meeting, " Trump said. "But we moved things forward in a significant way to build a consensus around many big issues that we were called on to address together".

Trump is telling reporters that he told world leaders that the USA will take whatever steps necessary to prevent unfair foreign trade practices.

The US has slapped a 25% tariff on imports of steel and 10% on aluminium from countries including the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday he wanted more talks with Russian Federation about what he called the "illegal" USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. Knowing how crucially important the meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has become to Trump, Moscow has tried hard to boost its profile in de-nuclearization diplomacy.

The Russian ministry also said that Lavrov conveyed Putin's greeting to Kim saying the president wished him luck in the undertakings that have been initiated with an aim of achieving peace in the Korean Peninsula.

The state-run Ria Novosti news agency quoted Kosachev as saying the sanctions were meaningless "except as an attempt by the radical wing of American politics to use all means to assert US exclusivity in the modern world".

The former Secretary of State blew her chances of occupying the White House in any number of ways.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an global summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality.

Peter Navarro tells "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend.

Despite being at odds with other countries at the gathering in Canada, Mr Trump rated his relationship with their leaders as a "10" - naming Germany's Angela Merkel, French president Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau, but not the UK's Prime Minister. The two leaders will nearly certainly ignore such "mundane" matters as climate change or gender equality; their views on migration are also quite far apart; and the joint counter-terrorism agenda is effectively exhausted.

The G-7 meeting is not a negotiation.

Trump was seated between Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Christine Whitecross, a Canadian lieutenant general. He said he'd be happy to return to the G-7 and looks forward to a separate summit with the American president. Then he tried to ease tension with friendly banter and vague claims of progress in trade talks.

The document showed the group of rich, developed nations remained divided in the crucial area of protecting the planet from climate change - and it gave a clear statement that the United States remained the outlier.

At issue are new US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is hailing a planned summit of the United States and North Korea.
