    EU Tusk comments

    Our discussions in G7 will be far from easy
    US and the rest of G7 continue to disagree on Iran sanctions, trade
    There is still much more that unites the G7 then that defines us
    We must demonstrate unity on South China Sea issue
    We will discuss stepping up response to 3rd countries meddling with Democratic processes in G7
    Is sure all European G7 members will have fully United position on all issues
    More important to convince US to strengthen G7as guarantor of world order meant to seek new format

    Italy’s new PM Giuseppe Conte at G7:

    We will promote a moderate position on tariffs
    Regarding the trade tariffs. there are conflictual positions out there
    Certainly, we will promote a moderate position.
    We will try to understand the reasoning that have pushed people to take the positions they have, and will act accordingly
    Is important that trade sanctions against Russia did not hurt the country’s ordinary people, and said Italy was totally dissatisfied with the way immigration from Africa was being handled in the European Union

    It is laughable that world leaders – al of them treat everyone like fools – Canada is especially interesting look at the tariffs they have on agriculture – specifically on IUS markets – yet never a mention. No wonder they don’t want to change!

    Merkel:

    Lack of a communique would be a sign of honesty, showing we couldn’t agree
    EU agrees that Russia should not be allowed to join G7 yet
    EU countries agreed that conditions for return of Russia are not met
    Cannot return until is change on Ukraine
