Written by on November 19, 2020

OUTGOING US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS MADE NO PLANS TO HOST A SUMMIT OF THE GROUP OF SEVEN (G7) ADVANCED ECONOMIES AFTER CANCELLING A JUNE GATHERING BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THREE DIPLOMATIC SOURCES SAY.

THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, WHO HAS REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE VICTORY OF DEMOCRAT JOE BIDEN IN THE NOVEMBER 3 ELECTION, HAS NOT MADE A FINAL DECISION, BUT TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO PLAN A MAJOR SUMMIT BEFORE HE HANDS OVER POWER ON JANUARY 20.

THREE DIPLOMATIC SOURCES SAID THERE HAD BEEN NO OUTREACH BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ON DATES OR AN AGENDA FOR A POSSIBLE G7 SUMMIT. WHILE AN ONLINE MEETING WOULD STILL BE POSSIBLE, THERE HAS BEEN NO WORK ON ANY KIND OF JOINT STATEMENT – A PROCESS THAT TYPICALLY TAKES MONTHS, SAID ONE OF THE SOURCES.

THE WHITE HOUSE DECLINED TO COMMENT.
