(MENAFN) The US President has retracted his support of the joint communique issued at the end of the G7 summit, accusing Canada of "dishonesty".
The joint communique, advocating a "rules-based trading system", was reached despite tension over US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed afterwards to press ahead with retaliatory tariffs on 1 July.
He described Trump's decision to invoke national security concerns to justify steel and aluminum tariffs as "insulting".
