British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has proposed Cornwall, in southwest England, as an “ideal” location for the “decisive” summit of the G7 leaders scheduled for 11-13 June. Johnson said, according to the English press, “The Group of Seven is the most important group of democratic countries, and it has always been the catalyst for major international actions to meet the greatest challenges.”
“From global debt cancellation to our global condemnation of the annexation of Crimea by Russia, the world looks to the Group of Seven to implement our common values and diplomatic strength to create a more open and prosperous planet,” he added.
Consequently, he has referred to the Coronavirus, “the most destructive force that we have seen for generations without a doubt,” “the greatest test of the modern world order.” “Cornwall is the perfect setting for this crucial summit. 200 years ago, the tin and copper mines in Cornwall became the heart of the UK Industrial Revolution, and this summer Cornwall will once again be the center of great global change and progress,” Johnson said.
The G7 consists of the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States and the European Union. This will likely be the first major international event that Joe Biden will attend as President of the United States.
