UK PM to tell Trump to end trade tensions

Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron

- Railway carriages sold to the USA are hit with a 14% tariff, whereas American carriages destined for Britain have a 1.7% levy.

The source said Johnson would not make the mistake of thinking Merkel alone could deliver a new deal for Britain, criticizing previous governments for being too keen on the idea that the German chancellor could be Britain's "savior". Macron also invited several world leaders from outside the G7 such as India's Narendra Modi and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

BoJo is expected to inform the European Council president of the decision during a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 summit in France on Sunday.

Washington and Beijing have been engaged in a trade conflict for over a year after Trump announced tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports justifying the move by the need to balance the trade deficit.

"When you occur to love to must promote insurance coverage within the United Kingdom you fully wish to talk to two regulators", Johnson fumed.

France has plunged into a heated dispute with the USA after its parliament agreed a new sales tax that forces the digital giants to pay up even if their headquarters are not in the country.

"We think that it is very important that Iran doesn't get the nuclear weapons", said the diplomat speaking ahead of the G7 leaders summit in Biarritz, where Johnson and Trump will meet.

"It is important that it (the deal) continues", the official said.

Johnson's talks with Tusk later in the day could prove to be prickly after the pair exchanged barbs on Saturday over who would be to blame if Britain left the European Union without a deal.

"I still hope that PM Johnson will not like to go down in history as Mr No Deal", said Tusk.

G7 summits, gathering Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States, were once a meeting of like-minded allies.

In an attempt to break the ice, Macron deployed the charms of French cuisine on Saturday, treating Trump to an unscheduled lunch as soon as he arrived on Air Force One.

However, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, said a UK-US trade deal would not get through Congress if Brexit undermined the Good Friday Agreement.
