The state leaders of France, the UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.S. have arrived in Biarritz for the G7 Summit on Saturday, August 24. However, there were disagreements between the participants on the issues of international trade, Brexit and ways of fighting with Amazon rainforest fire, as Reuters informs.
“This is another G7 summit, which will be a difficult test for unity and solidarity of the free world and its leaders. This may be the last moment to restore our political community,” President of the European Council Donald Tusk said to journalists ahead of the meeting.
President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron, the summit host, set the agenda of the meeting, which included the protection of democracy, gender equality, education and environment. He invited Asian, African and Latin American leaders to join them for a global push on these issues.
