Photo shared by Angela Merkel hints at tension at G7

German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared a unique photo from the sidelines of the G7 summit on Saturday in Quebec, showing the nations' leaders gathering informally.

The photo first appeared on Merkel's official Instagram account around noon Saturday.

Merkel also noted that now there is no possibility for Russian Federation to return to the G8 group, but said she supported talks with Russian Federation, saying dialogue is always important.

She added that with Trump's "unpredictable" leadership and the USA turn toward isolationism, the European Union needs to hone its response to a raft of issues in an environment in which global institutions need to be "newly proven". Italy's new Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte later echoed the call in a post on Twitter.

The EU has already said it will announce counter-measures against Trump's metals tariffs on Jul 1. Despite this, they were seen at the summit on good terms, and President Macron's team said his talks with Trump were "frank and robust".

She points to demands by Trump for Europe to pay more for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, his exit from the Paris climate agreement, conflicts over trade and his withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal last month.

Mrs Merkel's photo has taken off on social media, spawning all sorts of memes and amusing caption contests.

Merkel and Trump are also surrounded by other leaders, including Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and national security adviser John Bolton.

The captions reads: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".

Mrs Merkel's March 2017 visit to the White House was marked by Mr Trump either not hearing or ignoring her offer to shake hands in the Oval Office.
