SINGAPORE (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday he was confident that relations between the United States and G7 countries would continue to move forward, in spite of a major clash over trade at a weekend summit in Canada.

“There are always irritants in relationships. I am very confident that the relationships between our countries ... will continue to move forward on a strong basis,” Pompeo told a news briefing ahead of an unprecedented summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Pompeo praised European countries for helping bring about the summit scheduled for Tuesday, saying it could not have happened without them.
