Macron Ready to Visit G7 Summit in US if COVID-19 Situation Goes Back to Normal
French President Emmanuel Macron is ready to go to the United States to participate in the G7 summit, provided the epidemiological situation is normalized, French media reported citing the Champs Elysees.
According to the government’s spokesman, Macron « is ready to go to Camp David, if the health situation allows. »
Earlier on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump announced that the G7 summit could not be held via video, but in person, at Camp David’s residence.
The summit was originally scheduled for June this year at Camp David, but in March the White House said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting would be held in videoconference format.
White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, for her part, confirmed that Trump is considering organizing a Camp David summit “sometime in June,” but there are no concrete plans for this yet.
