Trump and Italian PM stress importance of defeating ISIS

But they differed on any USA role in Libya, with the prime minister declaring that that country, too, needed to be stabilized and that the United States could play an important role there, an idea Trump quickly shot down.

Italy is also a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the military alliance to which Trump says the USA contributes more than it receives.

Trump noted Italy's military contributions to the fight against ISIS and the war in Afghanistan and said the two countries could partner to address "large-scale migration and global smuggling".

G-7 members include the U.S., Germany, France, Britain, Canada, Japan and Italy. Trump was asked if he would meet Pope Francis during a press conference with Italian premier Paolo Gentiloni at the White House Thursday.

President Donald Trump says a strong Europe is "very, very important" to the United States.

Italy is to host the G7 leaders' summit next month, which will be part of Trump's entry into the world of multilateral summitry.

Talks with Italian leader Paolo Gentiloni were expected to address USA commitments to trade and military partnerships with European allies, as well as security concerns, including the Syrian civil war and Russia's role in the conflict.

At Thursday's news conference, Trump didn't specifically weigh in on the French election, nor would he say outright whether he supported countries staying in the EU.

Trump plans to attend a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting May 25 in Brussels before traveling to the G-7 gathering of representatives from the U.S., Germany, France, Britain, Canada, Japan and Italy.

Police in Paris have closed off the Champs Elysees and are warning people to steer clear of the area after a shooting there left one police officer dead and another wounded, CNN reported.

He also said the anti-trade movement is bigger than one single country. Trudeau, however, has long insisted Canada is already doing its fair share.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer also expressed confidence that there wouldn't be a shutdown, although the Office of Management and Budget had begun giving guidance Friday to federal departments and agencies about plans for a shutdown. -European agreement negotiated by the Obama administration and meant to unlock "opportunity for American families, workers, businesses, farmers and ranchers through increased access to European markets".

Gentiloni, who in the morning also spoke at the think tank Csis, said that this could be the year that Daesh might be defeated as a group that controls territory. "All of this goes hand in hand in hand".
