Coronavirus: Trump, other leaders to meet

Trump says he's

Trump first aired hopes for restoring the scrapped summit on Wednesday, calling for his counterparts from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan to fly in for the event.

President Trump has announced he anticipates this year's Group of Seven summit will take place primarily at the White House.

It is unclear how G7 leaders would respond to the president's overture. Camp David is located around 65 miles (105 kilometers) north of the White House in Maryland.

"Whatever form the G-7 meeting takes, whether it's a video conference or otherwise, I will definitely fight for multi-lateralism, that's very clear, both in the G-7 and the G-20", said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Emmanual Macron, President of France, said he would attend if proper health precautions are in place, Dpa quoted sources at the Elysee.

Member countries - which remain under varying levels of lockdown and whose leaders have not left home since the pandemic began - were not notified that Trump had resurrected plans for a face-to-face summit until after he said Wednesday on Twitter that he was considering it.

The US has the worst coronavirus outbreak worldwide, with about 30% of all confirmed cases and the highest known death toll of any nation, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University.

With more than 33 million Americans out work and a decimated national economy due to the knock-on effects of coronavirus, Trump is now keen to reopen his country. "So if we do the G7, when that all comes together, probably it will be in D.C.at the White House, but there could be a piece of it at Camp David, which is nearby". "It would be a great sign to all - normalization!" Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who hosted the 2018 summit, said any in-person gathering would have to prioritize safety.

"I don't have any information about the response from world leaders, but we certainly hope to see this happen", she told reporters during a press briefing after the call. "We'll certainly take a look at what the United States is proposing as host of the G7 to see what kind of measures will be in place to keep people safe, what kind of recommendations the experts are giving in terms of how that might function".

Yoshihide Suga, the top government spokesperson, added: "Regardless, the prime minister's attendance of G7 leaders' meetings is still under consideration". The United States also now maintains bans on flights to the country from Europe and Britain.
