OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has spoken to German Chancellor Angela Merkel about making progress on climate change and combating protectionism when they meet at the G7 next month in Quebec.

Both are hot button topics with President Donald Trump, who will be making his Canadian debut at the June 8-9 gathering in Quebec's Charlevoix region.

Merkel is the G7's longest-serving leader and has clashed with Trump in the past, including at his first summit last year in Italy.

Trump's trip to Canada is generating concerns among diplomats and analysts that Trudeau could wind up hosting a summit that could fracture the G7 into a so-called six-plus-one configuration with the U.S. as an outlier.

Trudeau regrets Trump Iran decision

  Trudeau regrets Trump Iran decision OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has delivered a thinly veiled rebuke to the Trump administration and Israel over their opposition to the Iran nuclear deal, setting the stage for a divisive G7 summit next month. Trudeau said he regrets President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the 2015 agreement that was negotiated by the world's major powers.

BRIDGEWATER, N.J.—President Donald Trump had an “extensive” conversation about trade and climate issues with German Chancellor Angela Merkel ahead of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, the White House said Monday.

Donald Trump, right, talks with German chancellor Angela Merkel , surrounded by other G 7 leaders and their advisers. Kim Jong-un ‘must not see American weakness’, Larry Kudlow says in fierce attack, while trade adviser Navarro promises a ‘special place in hell’ for Canadian PM .

A top European Union official who will be at the table with Trump and Trudeau next month has blasted the U.S. president over his recent decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement.

"With friends like that, who needs enemies?" EU Council President Donald Tusk said in Bulgaria on Wednesday.

The EU is a full member of the G7 which means Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will join Trudeau, Trump and the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan at the leaders' summit.

Trudeau and Merkel also spoke about the need to make "meaningful investments" on educating girls and women in crisis settings, a topic that the prime minister is being pushed to champion by leading aid agencies and anti-poverty groups.

Trudeau has tried to find common ground with Trump on gender equality, which is an overarching theme for the prime minister's chairmanship of the G7.

Also on Wednesday, a Canada-U.S. women-in-business group created by Trudeau and Trump released its fourth set of recommendations.

The group is trying to remove barriers to female entrepreneurs, and its latest report makes $1.4 billion in new financing from the Business Development Bank of Canada available to women entrepreneurs.
