İrem GÖL -TDO- The U.S. President said he was considering a face-to-face meeting of G7 in Washington. Earlier, he had cancelled the physical gathering due to the global outbreak. He tweeted: “I am considering rescheduling G-7, on the same or similar date, in Washington, D.C., at the legendary Camp David. The other members are also beginning their COMEBACK. It would be a great sign to all – normalization!”
Due to the travel restrictions around the world and border closures, Trump had cancelled the physical summit, which was planned to take place in June. During April and May, the leaders hold their conference on virtual platforms. The G7 summit was scheduled to be carried out via teleconference.
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, said he was open to travelling to the United States for an in-person meeting of G7 leaders if the coronavirus situation globally allows. After the phone call between the two leaders, Macron’s spokesperson said: “He is open, he’s even willing to go there, but obviously with this caveat: only if the sanitary conditions allow.”
