French President Emmanuelle Macron may go to the U.S. to participate in the summit of leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), if the epidemic situation with the coronavirus allows, said the Elysian Palace. Earlier Wednesday, a telephone conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and Mr. Macron took place.
“He (Emmanuelle Macron.-Kommersant) is ready to go there (G7.-Kommersant summit), but obviously only if sanitary conditions allow,” a Reuters source said.
In March, Donald Trump said he would cancel a face-to-face meeting of G7 leaders in the U.S. in June and hold it in a video link format because of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. is in first place by the number of infected with COVID-19 (more than 1.5 million people), more than 91 thousand died. More than 180 thousand cases were detected in France, 28 thousand died.
