Japan Aso says gradually seeing the course of United States policies

Trade is not formally on the agenda but that doesn't prevent ministers from taking the matter up in one-on-one meetings.

In a possible sign of friction to come, Mnuchin ruffled the hosts on Thursday evening by bluntly asking Padoan a question about the stability of Italy's banks.

Canadian Finance Minister William Morneau, right, talks with President of the German Central Bank Jens Weidmann as they exit the Castle of Bari, venue of the G7 of Ministers of finance, in Bari, southern Italy, Friday, May.

Italian lenders are saddled with about €350 billion (RM1.6 trillion) of bad debt, a third of the euro zone's total, and are considered a threat to the improving growth prospects for the European economy.

Trump urges Russian Federation to rein in Syrian ally
We want to see the killing, the frightful killing, stopped in Syria as soon as possible and everyone is working toward that end. Several ceasefires have been agreed on since Syria's conflict broke out, but they have failed to stem the fighting.

Italian Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan said Saturday's session on cybercrime was "unfortunately very timely", an apparent reference to the wave of ransomware attacks in which files were locked and payment demanded to unlock them. "We can discuss, we can have different appreciations, but we are in the same world and in the same boat", he said.

As with his previous outings in Germany and Washington, Mnuchin is fronting up an economic agenda that leaves some in the global community baffled and frustrated. "'All the six others ... said explicitly, and sometimes very directly, to the representatives of the US administration that it is absolutely necessary to continue with the same spirit of global cooperation, ' French Finance Minister Michel Sapin told reporters".

"People feel a level of comfort in understanding the Trump administration's policies, now that we have had the ability to interact a few times", Mnuchin told reporters Saturday after a two-day summit with G7 finance ministers and central bank chiefs.

At a meeting of the larger Group of 20 finance ministers in Germany in March, ministers dropped their traditional pledge to keep global free trade open, bowing to an increasingly protectionist United States. -Canada trade relationship is to both economies. "Compared with a month or two months ago, the stiffness is gone". Among US partners in the club of wealthy democracies there is concern that Trump's arrival in the White House could herald a new era of protectionism - although officials complain mainly that they don't have any visibility on Washington's intentions.

Runner falls 25 secs short in sub two-hour marathon bid
A pacer entering a race after the start is against IAAF rules and would mean the result would not count as a world record. Kipchoge , said in an interview last week that anything slower than the current world record "would be a failure".

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin met one-on-one with finance officials from Canada, Germany and Japan on Friday, as a conference of G7 nations got underway in Bari, Italy. "The U.S. administration is quite new and the cooperation is improving", Schaeuble said. "I am quite confident that the development will continue, that the US administration will engage more strongly in this process".

Many G-7 countries had been particularly concerned about the USA rolling out a border tax that could choke exports to the country.

That divergence augurs for potential disagreements when the nations' leaders gather in Sicily later this month - an event which marks Trump's first major global summit as U.S. President.

Man United, Ajax advance to Europa League final
But they were on the brink of getting eliminated after a poor display in the second leg. We had to hold on at the end after Nick Viergever's red card but we did that.
