European Union agreed time not right for G7 to readmit Russia: Merkel - International

German Chancellor Angela Merkel reacts at the EPP meeting in Munich

Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program.

Merkel stood for the first time in a question-and-answer session with German lawmakers. Those words, spoken at a beer-tent election rally, were a reaction to Trump hectoring European leaders for not spending enough on defense at a North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit in Brussels.

"All of that confirms the assessment that the world is being reorganized", Merkel said.

Photographs from the Group of Seven summit in Canada provided by the German and American governments have offered contrasting images of their leaders.

U.S. President Donald Trump called earlier on Friday for Russian Federation to be brought back into the global grouping - Moscow was expelled in the wake of its annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula in 2014.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged the European Union (EU) to persevere in the period when the U.S. authorities change the world order established after the Second world war. "But we have a way to go in order to get to a common position that is ambitious and targeted", Le Maire said. "Our European future is at stake".
