Anti-G7 Protesters March With 'Stolen' Portraits Of Emmanuel Macron

Anti-G7 Protesters March With 'Stolen' Portraits Of Emmanuel Macron

Mr Tusk also hit out at President Trump for his comments urging G7 members to allow Russian Federation back into the group after it was expelled in 2014 over its annexation of the Ukrainian territory Crimea. Manufacturers around the world are smarting from the trade dispute between the USA and China, which has led to new import taxes on hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of goods.

Roiled by months of anti-government protests this year, France has deployed more than 13,000 police to ensure protesters get nowhere near U.S. President Donald Trump and other leaders.

For several months, Macron has taken a lead role in trying to save the 2015 nuclear accord, which has been unravelling since Trump pulled the USA out of the agreement.

The other leaders of the G-7 countries, which include Germany, Britain, Canada, Italy and Japan, have carefully sidestepped their differences with Trump, known for his short fuse and skepticism of worldwide cooperation.


G7 leaders "had a discussion yesterday on Iran and that enabled us to establish two common lines: no member of the G7 wants Iran to get a nuclear bomb and all the members of the G7 are deeply attached to stability and peace in the region", he said.

He said G7 allies were not pressuring him to relent in his standoff with China, adding "they respect the trade war".

"We're involved in many movements including anti-capitalism and anti-fascism so it's important to be here to show that".

That conclusion was one world leaders reached long ago and the objective of the 2015 accord, which took years to negotiate. Trump said he and Macron spoke directly. The French official said the decision to invite Zarif was made after the dinner.


It was not clear when precisely Macron extended the invitation to Zarif or when he informed the others that the Iranian was on his way. "You did brilliant, you did brilliant", he said. "Especially when he asked me for approval", Trump said.

No details were provided on the message but the French presidency said the goal is to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and avoid further escalating tensions in the Middle East. Iran's economy has nosedived since the USA imposed new sanctions.

In a joint statement Sunday after their meeting, the two said they would create a working group on trade issues. "Even if the odds of success are not 90% but are 20 or 10%, we must move ahead with it".

"I would say to our friends in the European Union if they don't want a no-deal Brexit then we've got to get rid of the backstop from the treaty", Johnson told reporters, referring to the Irish border protocol that would keep the border between Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland open after Brexit.


Just before boarding Air Force One for France, Trump tweeted another threat of new tariffs on French wine in retaliation for France's digital services tax.
