German Chancellor Angela Merkel rejected the invitation of the President of the United States Donald trump to take part in the G7 summit, “which the President seeks to portray as a symbol of the return to normal life after the quarantine,” the newspaper writes Politico.
The representative of the government of Germany Steffen Seiber in the comment to the edition reported that fthe Federal Chancellor thanked trump for the invitation, but it could not agree on a trip to Washington, given the situation with the pandemic coronavirus.
The refusal of Merkel to accept the invitation trump is the latest example of the complex relationship between the two leaders, reminiscent of Politico. Trump has repeatedly criticized Merkel on various issues, the same “pointedly and publicly” challenged the one-sided approach of the administration to trump a number of foreign policy issues, ranging from climate change, ending the Iranian nuclear deal.
On trump’s intention to hold a G7 summit in June, the U.S. press Secretary Kaylee Makanani said on may 26. The American President believes that the summit will be “the clearest example of the re-opening of the economy.” The White house assured that all the world leaders who will gather for the summit, will be protected.
The composition of the G7 includes the United States, Italy, Japan, Canada, France, Germany and the UK. The summits of leaders are held once a year alternately in each country. Trump this year is headed by the “Big seven”.
Last year, trump offered to hold a summit of the G7 in 2020 on his Golf resort near Miami. The proposal of the American President was criticized, and he abandoned this idea, noting that was not the goal of “earn”. Then trump announced that the summit will be held in his country residence camp David.
In March, the U.S. President has canceled a planned June summit with the personal presence of heads of state, noting that it will be held in a videoconference format. But on 24 may, the trump adviser for homeland security Robert O’brien said that the summit is likely to be full-time, not via videoconference.
