The official said that, by his estimates, the U.S. capital was close to the peak of Covid-19 cases, and the country would like to host the summit if the situation allows to do so.
He believes that the G7 leaders would like to meet in person, not in the video conference mode.
“So the president extended the invitation and so far we’ve had a great response. The logistics - we’ll make sure everybody is tested. We’ll make sure that it’s a safe environment if the leaders can come here. But we’d love to host them in Washington,” O'Brien said.
G7 Summit was slated for June 10, but President Donald Trump canceled it because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
