But Mrs May told the BBC: "I have always said we should engage with Russian Federation but my phrase is "engage but beware". "I think we'll probably very easily make a deal".

Macron declared on Thursday that "the six countries of the G-7 without the United States are a bigger market taken together than the American market". Now, I love our country. But after Russia's intervention in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea, Western leaders sought to isolate Vladimir Putin's government. It was the first violation of a European country's borders since World War II. "It would require consensus to bring Russian Federation back and that consensus will just not happen".

"I would say that the G8 is a more meaningful group than the G7, absolutely", Trump said.

"The rules-based global order is being challenged, not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor: the United States", said European Council President Donald Tusk.

Trump maintained the USA relationship with the country's northern neighbor is "probably better, as good or better, than it's ever been".

The shift has yielded only modest economic benefits, with Russia's two-way trade with China still less than half what it is with Europe, but it has allowed Putin to slough off his country's isolation from the West. "I may have had a much different attitude".

Putin responded: 'It wasn't us who left.

"Things happen", Putin added.

Canada's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland expressed outrage that Trump had invoked a national security justification for his global tariffs, even on imports from close United States allies. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". There are differences in styles of diplomacy and views about cooperation and free trade.


"They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", he said.

A senior British government source said that Russian Federation needs to change its approach before any conversation about it rejoining the G7 can begin.

Moscow was kicked out of the group, then the G-8, four years ago after it annexed Crimea. The day was later announced as the national holiday by the presidential decree.

Putin said disagreements within the G7 should not be overestimated.

"We are looking for peace in the world, we are not looking to play games". And that's really my wish. Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who USA intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

"The President has inexplicably shown our adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies", Republican Sen.

At the summit on Friday, Mrs May said: "There is no doubt that foreign interference in our democratic institutions and processes, and other forms of hostile activity, pose a strategic threat to our shared values and interests". He said he'd be happy to return to the G-7 and looks forward to a separate summit with the American president.

Analysts remarked on the similar leadership styles of the men.
