The two-day G7 summit meeting was held in the seaside town of Taormina, Sicily May 26-27 "to address in a spirit of cooperation the global challenges we face today and to respond collectively to the greatest concerns of our citizens".
"Many NATO countries have agreed to step up payments considerably, as they should", he tweeted later. To address members' dissapointment, US national security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday that "of course" the president supports Article 5, in which members regard "an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America" as "an attack against them all".
"It was a tremendously productive meeting where I strengthen American bonds", Mr Trump said. "I hope they decide in the right way".
"They would see withdrawal as a slap in the face, disrespecting their fundamental interests and, in turn, eroding the United States' diplomatic capital", Stern wrote in The Washington Post earlier in May of other countries' reactions to a US withdrawal from Paris.

They also agreed to step up pressure on North Korea, to forge closer cooperation in the fight against terrorism, on the possibility of imposing more sanctions on Russian Federation over its role in the conflict in Ukraine. "But he stands in stark isolation", said Alden Meyer, director of strategy and policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists. But now there is a new story out, and whether it is true or not is uncertain and I feel that putting it in a headline would be wrong, but one website is saying that they were told by White House "confidants" of the president that he is indeed planning to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement, reportsThe Hill.
