The heads of states and governments of the G7 countries - the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Italy, Germany and Japan, can not agree on common positions on trade and the Russian Federation in the final communique following the summit, Reuters reports citing sources.
"The source said that the diplomats were not able to decide whether to include obligations to combat trade protectionism in the final statement and also can not find a common solution - whether to take additional measures against Russia, if necessary, because of its invasion of Ukraine," the report said.
The source also said that despite this, the countries managed to find a common language regarding climate change. The communiqué will note that six of the seven countries support the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, signed in 2015.
At the same time, it is noted that the United States will be given more time to decide on their position on this issue.
