The President of the United States, Donald Trump, will be participating in a join press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday, as the G7 summit in France comes to an end.
The announcement of the joint press conference was done by the United States’ government on Sunday.
The press conference will be held in Biarritz at 3.30pm (1.30pm GMT), once the G7 summit that was held during the weekend comes to a close. The White House made it very clear that this press conference will be happening, but refrained from making any further comments with regards to it.
Trump appeared to have managed to rebuild his relationship with other leaders of the group that includes the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, after last year’s very eventful G7 summit that resulted in a famous picture of German chancellor Angela Merkel speaking to Donald Trump, who was pictured sitting with his arms folded.
However, there have been increasing concerns over the weekend as several reports have indicated that there were a number of disagreements over the United States’ intensifying trade war with China, as well as the nuclear ambitions of both Iran and North Korea.
The idea of Russian President Vladimir Putin being reintroduced into the G7 group also caused some controversy and discussions.
Iran’s foreign minister made a surprise visit to the summit on Sunday, with one of the officials from the United States’ government saying that it was a complete “surprise”.
The G7 summit over the weekend was filled with numerous turns and contradictions, mainly due to Macron’s insistence to not have a written agreement that Trump could go back on, just like he did during last year’s Summit.
