Donald Trump has dealt another blow to G7 unity after calling for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group - a call rejected by Theresa May.
Membership includes Canada, the U.S., UK, Italy, France, Japan and Germany.
"So we need to say, I think, before any such conversations can take place Russian Federation needs to change its approach".
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov earlier told TASS that the Foreign Ministry was making comprehensive preparations for a meeting between the Russian and United States presidents.
French President Emmanuel Macron told journalists on Saturday that Russian Federation could rejoin the summit if Moscow implemented the Minsk agreements, which were meant to enforce a solution the crisis in Ukraine.
Asked if Mrs May believed she had been snubbed, a Downing Street spokeswoman replied: "No".
In early April, Kremlin aide Vladimir Ushakov said Trump had proposed a meeting with Putin during a telephone call.
He said: "I've always said that our country must remain within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, but the sanctions are damaging us".
Xi said the two countries have "always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority direction". I think it would be good the United States.
"I agree with him", he said.
"The high level of the Azerbaijani-Russian bilateral relations, which clearly reflects the fruitful cooperation and close interaction of the two countries on the widest range of issues, is particularly gratifying".
"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will also not be pushed around", Trudeau said.
Expectations for a major breakthrough on trade at the summit, however, remain low, with USA allies focused on avoiding rupturing the G7, which in its 42-year history has tended to seek consensus on major issues.
In the days leading up to the summit, Trudeau and Macron have severely criticized Trump's new tariffs, which critics say threaten to drive up prices for American consumers and companies and heighten uncertainty for businesses and investors around the globe.
Trump has invoked a USA national security provision to unilaterally impose tariffs on imports of foreign steel and aluminum, to the outrage of his allies, who have retaliated with a threat of their own, more targeted, sanctions. "The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out".
Summit host Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau sided with his European and Japanese colleagues against the U.S. leader and his "illegal" levies on steel and aluminum imports.
"For the president of the United States to suggest all is forgotten, that that doesn't matter, that we are fine with one country annexing another country's sovereign territory and we should just welcome them with open arms back into a community of democracies is outrageous".
Over the course of his presidency, Trump has inflamed allies with his isolationist policies, including withdrawing the US from the Paris climate accord and the worldwide Iran-nuclear agreement.
