German Chancellor Angela Merkel refused to travel to Washington for a G7 summit at the invitation of the President of the United States Donald trump. It is reported by Politico.
Merkel found it impossible personal presence at the meeting in the White house, to be held at the end of June, due to the situation with coronavirus.
This summit, on the idea of trump, has become a symbol of returning US to normal life and to commemorate the country’s success in fighting the coronavirus.
Earlier, the us leader has canceled a meeting of G7 leaders, scheduled for March, and promised to conduct a video conference instead. However, he soon decided that the summit can be carried out in the same format.
