WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 (Reuters / EP) –

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, will participate this Monday in a joint press conference with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in the closing of the G7 summit that has been held in France, as reported by the White House.

The press conference will take place in Biarritz at around 3.30 pm (local time) after the closing of the G7, as indicated by the White House in its agenda scheduled for Monday, without offering more details.

Trump has insisted this Sunday that he gets along with other leaders of the group that includes the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

However, divisions have emerged on issues from his intensification of the trade war with China to the nuclear ambitions of Iran and North Korea, and the question of whether Russian President Vladimir Putin should be readmitted into the group.

Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, paid a visit to the summit this Sunday, in what a White House official has described as “a surprise.”
