USA desires European Union to remain strong

"And it is also, in my very strong opinion, important for the USA", he told reporters on Thursday at a White House press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. Mattis added, "But the agreement on nuclear issues still stands and that's all I can say about it".

Trump's comments came during a White House news conference with Gentiloni, who implored the United States to step up its "critical" involvement in Libya, a former Italian colony.

Trump has called for all countries in the alliance to adhere to a threshold of contributing 2 percent of their gross domestic products to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Pence's stop in Jakarta on a 10-day swing through the Asia-Pacific, meeting with Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, sends a message that Trump's interests in Asia extend beyond North Korea and the massive USA trade imbalance with China.

Trump was quick to dismiss the notion that the US would get involved in Libya, telling a joint news conference, "I do not see a role in Libya".

Both Trudeau and Gentiloni, who met Trump in Washington on Thursday, were keen to display their support for free trade and open borders - including the Canada-EU free trade pact - in the face of growing populist opposition. "I think the United States right now has enough roles", Trump responded.

"We are effectively ridding the world of ISIS". Trudeau said the upcoming summit and a broad range of global issues would form part of his talks with Gentiloni. However Trudeau has said Canada is already doing its fair share. Trudeau also said he will have an audience with Pope Francis in Vatican City after the G7 talks. "We are in a role everywhere, so I do not see that". Recent reports of slave markets being prevalent in the area have horrified the world, prompting renewed calls for humanitarian intervention from the West.

She used Snapchat to make light of the headline, which read "Pregnant Serena Williams Back in World Number One Spot". It's an Instagram tribute that shows she'll be a a powerful force when it comes to raising her child, as well.

Trudeau also lauded the "tremendously strong" trade ties between the two countries.

Trudeau thanked him for Italy's support bringing the Canada-EU free trade deal together. In meeting with Italian Prime Minister Gentiloni, Trump pushed Rome for more trade with the US.

"We need the region, and we need countries like Egypt and Tunisia that are close to Libya, we need a stable and unified Libya", he said.

Trump's arrival on the broader world stage is set to happen in late May.

Trump plans to attend a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting May 25 in Brussels before traveling to the G-7 gathering of representatives from the U.S., Germany, France, Britain, Canada, Japan and Italy.

Trump favors bilateral trade deals and has used trade as a tool for pressuring countries to do more on national security matters.

For Canada, next month's G7 will serve as a handover for next year, when its turn comes to host the gathering.
