G7 summit, consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, agreed on countering terrorism today in Taormina, Sicily, according to BBC.

"Leaders of the world's leading industrial nations, the G7, have agreed on new action to counter terrorism," the message reads.

However, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni noted differences over climate change remain.

Thus, US President and Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed plans to boost trade, including a post-Brexit trade deal. Trump in turn welcomed UK vote to withdraw from the European Union.

It is noteworthy that G7 summit is visited by current UK, US, Italian and French leaders for the first time.

Earlier it was reported that summit participants are planning to discuss situation in Syria and North Korea.

Previously, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Russia would not return to G7 line-up until Ukraine's sovereignty is restored.
