On Sunday, Germany will host the heads of the G-7 developed democracies. In a fortress in the Bavarian Alps, the leaders of Great Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States are meeting.
In the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a three-day conference is being conducted. Political analysts predict that the G-7 leaders will support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia with unanimity.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz recently told the German parliament that the summit “must convey not only the message that NATO and the G-7 are more united than ever, but also that the democracies of the world stand together against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s imperialism just as they do in the fight against hunger and poverty.”
The sanctions placed on Russia have sparked a spike in global food and energy prices. After the G-7 summit, the world leaders will travel to Madrid for a NATO summit.
The White House said US President Joe Biden’s plane will take off from the US to Germany to participate in the G7 summit at the Bavarian Schloss Elmau Hotel on Sunday.
The White House indicated that the US president is expected to arrive in the Bavarian capital, Munich, late on Saturday evening.
Biden will hold bilateral talks with Chancellor Olaf Scholz before the start of the group summit, which will continue until next Tuesday, and after that, the president will travel to the Spanish capital, Madrid, to attend the NATO summit before returning to Washington next Thursday.
