US President Donald Trump is planning a number of bilateral talks at the forthcoming G-7 Summit in France, including with Chancellor Angela Merkel. In addition to the meeting with Merkel Trump also wants to sit with the host, French President Emmanuel Macron, and the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, it was said on Thursday from American government circles.

He also discussed bilateral meetings with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi which will attend as a guest at the G-7 Summit.

The leaders of the seven major industrial nations – France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, America, Canada and Japan – meet from Saturday to Monday in the southwestern French resort of Biarritz.

At the meeting with Merkel According to the statements of the US government, issues such as Nordstream 2 and military spending are among the topics discussed. The United States has long criticized sharply the German-Russian gas pipeline project Nordstream 2 and also complains about their view on low defense spending in the Federal Republic. Trump also complains about the large trade surplus of Germany over America. Trade issues should also be discussed in the conversation with Merkel.

At the interview with Macron According to government circles, Trump wants to talk about  the French digital tax, which the Americans regard with great suspicion. Washington considers the French levy discriminatory against multinationals based in the United States.

Trump will meet Boris Johnson in Biarritz at th G-7 Summit for the first time since assuming the post of British Prime Minister. The two had in recent weeks, however, several times – and strikingly often – talking on the phone. Priority issue will be here the planned exit of Great Britain from the EU, it was said.

Donald Trump wants to speak with Modi the information, inter alia, about the Kashmir conflict between India and Pakistan. The American president had offered himself here as a mediator, which India rejected. The US government has said several times that Trump stands ready to help reduce tension between the two sides.
