  1. This is a good start to clear up the current uncomfortable environment diplomatically. Engaging the leaders of the West individuals may be the better way to bear fruit but as a group the situation could be so toxic it would be impossible to gain any good result. The recent G7 Summit is an example. It was so toxic that the old country was in the dog house the entire time.
