earlier. by my ash waiter thanks for joining us. a deepening rift among allies after this weekend's g. seven summit in canada two days of tense talks after all two days of tense talks all seven leaders endorsed a final communique seemingly finding an agreement on the need for quote rules based international trade but then with a tweet president trump withdrew his endorsement in a separate post trump also condemned the summit's host canadian prime minister justin trudeau writing pm justin trudeau of canada acted so meek and mild during our g seven meeting only to give at a news conference after i left saying that u.s. tariffs were kind of insulting and he will not be pushed around very dishonest and weak it was an acrimonious and to the g.

seven meeting in canada the usually amicable annual event brings together the heads of seven leading industrial democracies but the turn of events has created a diplomatic dispute. canada's pm didn't want to talk about it. but the flux of reporters we did in the wings do. no reaction. he dodged the questions about the us a surprise rejection of the summit's closing document. canada's foreign minister objected to the substance of trump's decision rather than his style what is insulting and what i object to very strongly is the illegal and unjustified in position of tariffs on canadian steel and aluminum on the street with a national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to canadians meanwhile european leaders have joined in the criticism of france as a manual mccauley lambasted trump for rejecting the g seven communicate saying in
10:03 pm
a statement it showed washington's quote incoherence and inconsistency germany's foreign minister also had harsh words for the us president social media diplomacy markets right up to you can destroy trust within seconds with two hundred eighty twitter characters. rebuilding it takes longer. we now must keep cool and take the appropriate steps one of those will be standing up for our interests in europe in a much more united fashion for most and russia's president vladimir putin weighed in on the war of words after a g. seven statement criticize russia for what it called its destabilizing behavior dickerson the i think it's time to stop all this idle talk creative idle talk and get to issues related to real cooperation seems that just cooperation with moscow looks to be on washington's agenda with trump seen russia should rejoin what was once the g eight putin suggested his door was still open if the group's leaders
10:04 pm
were willing to hold talks in moscow on russia's terms. political editor joins me now for more on the reaction to the g. seven summit some israel that we're seeing an olive branch of sorts for moscow and a lot of criticism for washington what's next after all of this are we seeing the end of the group of seven absolutely not because if anything the needs to talk more amongst this group has increased after all the d'sevyn and not just economically the strongest countries in the world they set themselves apart from the g twenty in claiming for themselves and they continue to do say trump does as well as actually having western values the value of democracy of upholding those values now that's been very much challenged over this weekend particular on that issue of trade particularly on the steel tariffs which they have been talking about for a very long time but now it's come to the crunch and we're seeing if anything
10:05 pm
a diplomatic spot now we heard just a bit ago germany's foreign minister saying calling i should say for a united response from europe to washington's actions what form could that take if that were to happen well first of all it would need to see europeans getting on the same page on key issues much faster and particularly the issue of how to deal with russia finding a common stunts that the german chancellor is very well known as the one who holds the european front together when it comes to that sanctions regime against russia particularly on the issue of crimea the russian invasion there but as we saw in the case of it too there are voices calling for at least an easing of those sanctions and there will be talks held here on monday in the so-called. on ukraine but that there will be some headway then that whether that could see some softening on the european side so chancellor merkel right now as we speak is giving a very rare impromptu t.v. interview after this weekend's events how is she framing what's happening and her
10:06 pm
move to talk to the press tonight so significant well it's the closest she actually get. to addressing the nation she spontaneously agreed to this interview it's an interview format on a bill that we were six of record for the political week that we go into and she said it was sobering and also depressing this for traps and from this joint communique that we saw by donald trump that she also announced that there would be a response from the european union to those tariffs that are being imposed that's already been lodged with the world trade organization and that will also come into force on the first of july so it's the exact sweat that trump received from justin trudeau the canadian prime minister that the europeans will now act on and we'll see what the next step will be that after that. our chief political editor thank you very much for your insights. and this is the venue for the historic north korea summit the luxury of capella hotel on some toes island off the coast of singapore

donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un are due to meet here on tuesday morning kim was the first to arrive in singapore and has already met with the country's prime minister trump followed a few hours later expectations are high particularly in the united states our washington correspondent alexander phenomenon gathered some opinions. will their meeting be more than a photo op a breakthrough or a disaster trumps decision to hold the summit called friends and foes off guard and blindsided his own aides proving once again how unpredictable this you ask president is it is good that this summit is taking place says mark to color a former state department official in an expert on korea to color sees it as a chance for diplomacy and things it is promising that president trump suggested this could be the start of a longer process that takes more pressure off more than one meeting because if you made it all about one meeting the chances of failure would be would be too serious
10:08 pm
i think being able leave things for future meetings having a process start up is going to be good for everybody. trump coordinates his efforts with south korea japan and china but alternately here allies on himself the president says he's a master dealmaker and doesn't need much preparation and extremely unusual approach towards such difficult talks trumps all for sanctions relief and economic woes in return put it in you clear ization of north korea but is that enough we've try it before says bruce clinger the former cia deputy division chief for korea cleaner doesn't trust the regime in pyongyang. we've had eight international agreements in the past with north korea where they first promised never to build nuclear weapons and then promised to give up the weapons or promise never to build in the first place and all have failed were we're hopeful that this time will be different but i
10:09 pm
think we do have to be pragmatic about. the summit is a boat building a relationship with him but he also promises to walk over to the meeting if it's not fruitful the truth is this is a gamble and no one knows how it's going to do no. could don't know i'm conventional approach brink a breakthrough here in washington actually believe it's worth a try but most experts remain skeptical they believe that this summit in singapore will be little more than the photo followed by long negotiations over the details of an agreement and potentially an even longer phase of implementation and verification enough time for the north korean regime to play its usual game making extracting concessions and in the end not giving up its nuclear program. and that are some of the other stories making news around the world
