G7 SUMMIT TO BE DELAYED AS OTHER COUNTRIES WOULD GET INVITE

President Trump

United States President, Donald Trump has said he will delay the G7 summit scheduled to take place in June and invite other countries, including Russia to join the meeting.

Speaking with reporters on Air Force One, Trump said G7 does not properly represent what’s going on in the world.

While saying G7 comprises outdated group of countries, he said he would like to invite Russia, South Korea, Australia and India to join an expanded summit in the fall.

Trump also said the summit could happen in September, either before or after the UN General Assembly, adding that he could do it after the election.

Elections would be taking place in the US early November, as Americans would choose a new president, with Trump keen for a return to normalcy from the coronavirus pandemic and a healthy economy as voters cast their ballots.
