The praise gave Trump a brief respite from criticism over the punishing steel and aluminum tariffs he has imposed on his G7 partners.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump declared before departing the annual Group of Seven summit in Canada for his meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses a press conference at the conclusion of the G7 summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, June 9, 2018.

His comments were reported by CTV.

Trump's comments on agriculture, his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks.

At these summits in the past, all the leaders commit their respective countries to a series of objectives, but U.S. President Donald Trump has shown reluctance to put pen to paper on the sections relating to trade and climate policy, which generally fly in the face of his "America First" agenda that has largely shunned multilateral cooperation.

He said the current system of global trade has badly damaged USA interests while giving an advantage to others.

Trump said he didn't blame the G7 leaders for "unfair" trade deals but rather their predecessors.

"Nevertheless, I do not consider that with a declaration all is obtained and it is obvious that we will have in the coming weeks, the next months, to continue to work", Macron told reporters.

"This isn't just G7".

"So, if I can get the president to actually realize that what he's doing is counterproductive for his own goals as well, then perhaps we can move forward in a smarter way".

But Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table. "And it's going to stop". We note the importance of bilateral, regional and plurilateral agreements being open, transparent, inclusive and WTO-consistent, and commit to working to ensure they complement the multilateral trade agreements.

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said.

In recent weeks, he has imposed a number of punitive tariffs on the European Union and Canada, which only served to heighten the tension between the US and its allies that has been brewing since Trump announced he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. Trudeau says what the leaders did this weekend was "roll up our sleeves" and figure out language they could agree to on a broad range of issues. Trudeau rejected the idea.

"I would rather see Russian Federation in the G-8, as opposed to the G-7".

This, he suggested, could involve "a check in and a renewal".

Officials say Canada and Mexico have proposed member nations gather every five years to review the treaty.

And he made clear that extends to the current deal the U.S.is renegotiating with its continental neighbours, Canada and Mexico. The United States' closest trading partners - the EU, Canada and Mexico - have vowed to impose retaliatory tariffs on scores of USA products beginning in the coming weeks. Canada has promised retaliatory measures on July 1.

Trump said: "I would say the level of relationship is a 10".
