Toronto, May 26 (Canadian-Media): Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada will advocate the benefits of free trade and action on climate change at the G7 Summit -- consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, and the representatives European Union -- in Taormina, Italy, said Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, media reports said.
A senior government official with intimate knowledge of the negotiations said Donald Trump, President of United States, might back out in the Paris Agreement on the fight against climate change, CBCNews reports said.
Trudeau would base his discussion on some common ground among the seven leaders around the table while still maintaining Canada's positions on those issues, said Freeland.
Freeland added that he expected that the leaders agree to work together to counter the threat of fanatic violence -- central topic of discussion by the leaders, as evidenced by Monday's deadly terrorist attack in Manchester, England, that killed 22 people.
But Freeland said there would likely be disagreements between leaders on the role that migration policy plays in that issue.
Canada, is reported to be hosting the G7 summit next year at a remote luxury resort in the Charlevoix region of Quebec.
According to an official, inclusive growth and gender equality would be the major themes to be introduced by Trudeau in the meeting.
