France has warned it won’t sign a joint statement at the G7 summit in Quebec this week if the United States doesn’t adjust its stance on contentious policy issues.

French President Emmanuel Macron wants to make progress in discussions on tariffs, the Paris climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal before signing the usual joint statement, which details a range of policy issues on which all leaders of the G7 group agree, a French official in the president’s office told Bloomberg on Wednesday.

Macron’s warning comes a day after German Chancellor Angela Merkel sent a similar message in parliament, where she told lawmakers there was “no sense in papering over divisions” if leaders could not agree on common language.
