On day of summit with Trump, Kim also greets Russian President Putin

But Trump struck a more affable tone after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, saying the French leader was helping work out trade issues.

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalisation", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.

But a U.S. -Russia summit isn't a reward for Putin, who does not need any kind of legitimacy from Washington.

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 U.S. allies. "All of these countries have taken advantage of the United States on trade".

Trump is telling reporters that he told world leaders that the USA will take whatever steps necessary to prevent unfair foreign trade practices. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

Taking to the U.S. president's favourite social media, Twitter, Mr Conte wrote: "I agree with President Trump: Russia should return to the G8".

The statement also criticized the US decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and said they would endeavor to keep it alive and ensure further trade with Iran.

Relations have hit such a low point that a key question now is whether the seven countries can agree on a joint statement of priorities at the conclusion of the meeting. Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement.

In 2013, before travelling to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, Donald Trump asked plaintively on Twitter whether Vladimir Putin would be attending, and "if so, will he become my new best friend?"

Mr Putin said that some nations, including Austria, have offered to host his summit with Mr Trump. The Kremlin has complained that efforts to organise the meeting seem frozen.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., a frequent critic of Trump, called the move "weak".

President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation said Sunday during a visit to China that he would meet President Donald Trump "as soon as the American side is ready" but insisted Russian Federation was in no hurry to win readmission to the Group of 7 nations because it belongs to a Chinese-led grouping that he described as more important.

"The nuclear energy state-owned corporation Rosatom is one of Russia's most internationally competitive companies", Lukin said. Trump was due to arrive in Singapore on Sunday ahead of a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The G-7 still represents almost half the world's total gross domestic product, but it has slipped behind the nations of the SCO, when economic power is measured using a formula that adjusts for the relative value of currencies and their purchasing power. In the lead up to the Iraq war in 2003, the US was at odds with France and Germany, as the two European countries worked in opposition to the war.

Mrs May pleaded with fellow leaders to step back from the brink of a damaging trade war at a session of the summit on Friday night.
