Before arriving at the summit in Quebec, Mr Trump had said: "Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation in the meeting?"

Russian Federation should be attending a Group of Seven summit in Canada, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday, a controversial idea that even Moscow seemed to reject, as he headed for a chilly reception at the meeting where other leaders are set to clash with him over trade.

"Various cities, which can be suitable for a meeting between the two presidents, are often considered".

Peskov was quick to add, according to the report, that discussions between Trump and Putin on the issue are purely in the preliminary stages.

"This is an indication of the special attention and respect on which our mutual national interests are based, the interests of our peoples and, of course, our personal friendship", Putin said.

He said the Chinese president was the only state leader to have celebrated his birthday with him, with the pair sharing vodka and sausage.

Trudeau said he and Trump have disagreed over Trump's call for Canada to open up its supply management system, which protects dairy, poultry and eggs farmers, during the hard ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Not content with just starting a trade war with America's supposed allies, Donald Trump risked enraging G7 allies further by suggesting that Russian Federation should be reinstated as a member.

Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tie-break when their quarter-final was suspended. Nadal patted Marterer sympathetically on the chest at the net after winning on his second match point.

Conte, who is attending his first summit, had earlier indicated that he was in favor of Trump's proposal to welcome Russian Federation back into an organization from which it was frozen out after annexing Crimea in 2014.

"Dialogue may prove to be constructive", he said in the interview, the full version of which was released on Saturday.

The agreement is based on greater intelligence sharing between the countries of the G7 group of industrialised nations - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the U.S. - and aims to identify, prevent and respond to hostile state activity including cyber-attacks.

Trump has repeatedly put himself at odds with practically the entire U.S. political and security establishment over Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Last month, President Donald Trump pulled out of former President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.

Russian Federation was invited to join the world's largest industrialized democracies in the 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union when the West held out hope that it could become a successful democracy.

"We are not going to live with the deals the way they are", Trump said.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.
