War of words ahead of G7 summit in Canada
Leaders of the G7 group are gathering in Canada for what could be one its most acrimonious summits in years.
On the eve of the meeting, the French and Canadian leaders clashed with US President Donald Trump on the summit’s key issue – trade tariffs.
Mr Trump, expected to be the last to arrive and first to leave, has imposed steel and aluminium tariffs that have sparked reprisals from trade partners.
There could also be clashes with Mr Trump over Iran and climate change.
