FALmouth, England – The final day of talks at the Group of Seven summit in Cornwall began on Sunday with a focus on climate change.
President Joe Biden is in the southwestern tip of the British Isles since Thursday for discussions with world leaders on ways to combat the coronavirus pandemic, an ascending China and global inequality.
Later on Sunday, Biden will travel to Brussels for a NATO coalition summit on Monday, and hold separate talks with EU leaders on Tuesday. But before heading to continental Europe, Biden will stop briefly at Windsor Castle for tea with the Queen.
Relations between the wealthy G-7 industrialized countries and Beijing were not expected to be on the formal agenda in Cornwall. But China – its economic might, geopolitical ambitions, approach to human rights and role in the coronavirus pandemic – has generated much buzz over the past few days.
