Trump has left for Singapore from Canada after attending the two-day Group of Seven (G7) meeting that ended Saturday. It also successfully tested missiles that had enough range to reach the US mainland.
I can reiterate that in our last telephone conversation he expressed his concern about the threat of a new round of the arms race. Experts said the award was a clear sign that both countries were growing closer amid increasing pressure from the US.
