The U.S. has decided to postpone the G7 summit in Washington from June 10 to the end of the month due to the Coronavirus pandemic, CBS reports citing a statement by U.S. Presidential National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.
“The G7 summit, if it is held in a personal format and we think it will be held in late June,” O’Brien said.
He said the U.S. leadership expects the country to be close to or on top of its coronavirus peak.
He added that all of its leaders are interested in the G7 meeting in person.
Initially, the G7 summit was scheduled for June 10-12 in Maryland. But in March 2020 it was announced that the G7 leaders would hold a video conference instead of a meeting. Later Trump said that he was considering holding a meeting of G7 leaders in person at the Camp David residence near Washington.
