U.S. President Donald Trump argued with the colleagues of the G7 due to his wish to return Russia to the group, as The Guardian reported.

According to diplomatic sources, Donald Trump was insisting during the fellowship dinner that Vladimir Putin should be invited back to the leaders' club of the world richest countries, five years after Russia was ejected from the then G8 for its annexation of Crimea.

However, only Giuseppe Conte, the outgoing Italian Prime Minister, offered Trump any support in the issue of Russia's return. Shinzo Abe was neutral. The others - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, EC President Donald Tusk and President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron pushed back firmly against the suggestion. 

The majority of leaders said that the G7 is the club of the liberal democracy and they cannot let Putin become a member of this group once again. 

Besides, Donald Trump assured that it made sense to invite Russia for discussing Iran, Syria and North Korea issues.
