Russian Federation was expelled from what had been the G-8 in 2014 following its annexation of Crimea.

For its part, Russian Federation allows China to show the USA that it has "other options" in global negotiations, she said.

The president has repeatedly threatened to terminate NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, unless it's revised.

According to Sputnik News, Kremlin spokesman Dmitriy Peskov responded to Trump's call for reinstatement, saying, "Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7".

The prospects of Russian Federation being readmitted to the G-7 are dim.

"We will continue to demonstrate that we're interested in defending Canadian interests and, on top of that, it turns out I'm defending American interests because these tariffs they're putting forward are going to hurt American workers as well", Trudeau said Thursday.

"My experience of communication with the USA president suggests that although his actions are frequently criticized, especially lately, including on the worldwide scene and in the economic sphere, this experience tells me after all that he is a thoughtful person who can listen to and who responds to arguments given by his interlocutor".
