The leaders of the Great Britain, Canada, France, German, Italy, Japan and the USA should hold the negotiations concerning the issues of terrorism, world economy and climate during the 2-days summit that takes place in the Italian city, Taormina. Reuters wrote this.

Particularly, the members of the summit are going to discuss the occurrences in Syria and North Korea.  

It is expected that the discussion between Donald Trump, the President of the USA and other leaders during the G7 summit will be complicated.

Trump criticized the NATO allies and condemned the trade policy of German during the meeting with Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of European Commission on May 25. Particularly, he claimed that he can take steps to limit the sale of the German autos in the USA. Also, he threatens to remove the USA from the Climate Agreement that was signed in Paris in 2015. The G7 leaders are trying to persuade him to not to do this. 

‘We gathered in Taormina to discuss the most difficult international problems. Without any doubts, it will be the most difficult summit over the years. It is not a secret that the leaders who are going to meet have the different views on such issues as climate change and trade. Our aim is to keep the unity of the G7 on every sphere’, Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council claimed.

This summit will be the first major international event for Donald Trump, the President of the USA,  Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, Paolo Gentiloni, the Prime Minister of Italy and Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the Great Britain. 

The representatives of the European Union, International Monetary Fund and delegations of Kenya, Niger, Tunisia, Nigeria and Ethiopia are going to join the G7 summit. It is expected that G7 leaders will publish the statement about terrorism on May 26 and the official communique will be published on May 27.
