Ukraine against Russia's return to G8

The president of Ukraine and the prime minister of Canada agreed to continue discussing the issues of countering Russia's aggressive policy and protecting the interests of Ukraine after the G7 summit in France, which will be held on August 24-26. "But it's unclear what role the United States will play and what the consequences of that might be".

France holds the 2019 presidency of the G-7, which besides the USA also includes Britain, Canada, Germany, Italy and Japan.

Macron says taxing big tech more heavily is a matter of social justice and is pressing for a universal tax code for digital services. The task won't be easy.

In Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and visiting British Prime Minister Boris Johnson poured cold water on the idea of readmitting Russian Federation soon.

In a gesture ahead of the G7, Macron on Monday hosted Putin for talks at his summer residence in southern France, notably seeking progress on ending the conflict in eastern Ukraine that followed the annexation of Crimea.

"The aim (of combatting inequality) is not to abandon globalization (which has helped lift millions of people out of extreme poverty), but rather to better regulate it so that nobody is left behind", the French government said in announcing its G7 priorities. "If the president of the republic doesn't do it, who would?"

Zelensky thanked Boris Johnson for the firm and principal position of the United Kingdom in the support of Ukraine amid the recent statements about the possibility of Russia's return to G7. Five other African countries and the African Union have also been invited to Biarritz.

The law will affect US-based global giants like Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, among others. It also pointed to the deepening rift between leaders of the largest economies.

Both French diplomats couldn't be identified in accordance with the French presidency's customary practices. "There is the G7, they make decisions within its own circle".

"We are very well aware of what is at stake and what is not. yet we still advocate for rules at the global level. which are a path of social and environmental progress", she told the AP.

At the G-7 summit of 2018 in Ottawa, Canada, Trump refused to sign the final statement and made an early exit. France will host a meeting of G7 leaders this weekend.
