Trudeau and Trump to talk NAFTA in brief G7 chat

While there was no direct contact between Hurrell and Trudeau, "we can not speculate whether or not someone may or may not act on alleged threats made", RCMP said in a statement.

"Canada believes very strongly in a rules-based global trading order".

That platitude takes on more significance in the context of the G7 summit where Trump and the other six leaders diverged over free trade, climate change and migration policy behind closed doors.

Trudeau has also sat down with French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and Shinzo Abe, the prime minister of Japan, while at the G7.

That can bring a period of adjustment as the newcomers learn to see the benefits of having a smaller group that operates on dialogue and consensus, the Canadian official pointed out.

The G-7 is a "really important opportunity for the leaders to have a direct exchange and, crucially, to explain their positions", Freeland said.

Indeed, Trump is all ears, the president's chief economic adviser Gary Cohn said Friday.

"We agreed that we need to continue to keep working together constructively to amplify the success that citizens and communities have on both side of our border", he said. "If you know how it's going to go, then what's the point?"

On trade, Trudeau is set to hold up the Canada-EU trade pact, known as CETA, as a model trade agreement, particularly as the country prepares for talks with the USA and Mexico on adjustments to the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Last week U.S. President Donald Trump began the countdown to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"It's the responsibility of our generation".

Ebrahim Jadwet met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a fund raising event organised by the Liberal Party of Canada recently at Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel, Vancouver. Rob Cameron said in a statement.

"I am doubtful that any leader at the table can effectively position themselves as a mediator for the president".
