Theresa May will have formal meetings with the leaders of all the G7 – except Donald Trump

Theresa May will have formal meetings with the leaders of all the G7 - except Donald TrumpTheresa May will have formal meetings with the leaders of all the G7 countries at the group’s summit in Canada – except US President Donald Trump. The US leader is at odds with the other six countries in the group – the UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Japan – over his protectionist tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. Mr Trump is not expected to spend as long at the summit in Charlevoix, Quebec as other leaders, leaving little time for formal bilateral meetings in front of the world’s press. In a further sign of strained relations between Mrs May and Mr Trump, sources told The Telegraph that the president has grown frustrated with Mrs May’s “school mistress” tone. Mrs May is expected to have informal talks with the US president and will seek to use the summit to avert a damaging trade war, insisting she wants a “proportionate” response from the European Union to the US tariffs. The Prime Minister told reporters on the plane to the summit in Quebec: “I made my views clear on the steel and aluminium tariffs that President Trump has announced, I have done that directly to him. Why Trump’s trade war with the EU and China could end in disaster “My most recent conversation with him was on Monday this week. “We disagree with these, we think they’re unjustified. “Obviously the European Union will be responding. “We want to ensure, and we’re working with others in the European Union to ensure, that this response is proportionate, that it is within the WTO rules. “As the UK, we want to be a great champion of free trade around the world and that’s what we will continue to be. “I will continue to put the argument for the importance of those trade relationships around the world and I’ll be doing that here at the G7 as I have done elsewhere and will continue to do elsewhere.” The Prime Minister will join leaders from Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan in voicing concerns with the US president over the imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium. The meeting of G7 leaders follows a stormy gathering of the countries’ finance ministers earlier this month where the US was left isolated because of the rift caused by the refusal to exempt allies from the 25% tariff on steel imports and the 10% duty on aluminium. The European Commission has confirmed it intends to hit back with retaliatory tariffs from July on US imports ranging from jeans to bourbon whiskey. Despite the threat of tit-for-tat trade reprisals threatening to overshadow the meeting, Mrs May will use the summit to call on internet giants to do more to remove content showing violence against women. New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has broken ranks with other Western leaders by calling for an end to sanctions on Russia and promising to advocate for a thaw in the relationship with Moscow. “We are very clear and will be, should the subject arise, that sanctions on Russia absolutely need to remain in place,” a senior UK Government source said. Mrs May is scheduled to have a meeting with Mr Conte on Saturday after talks with Canada’s Justin Trudeau, France’s Emmanuel Macron, Germany’s Angela Merkel and Japan’s Shinzo Abe on Friday.
