Donald Tusk: G7 summit may be last chance for unity

E-mail Print PDF
Donald Tusk, European Council presidentLeaders of the world's richest and most powerful democracies are increasingly unable to find "common language" and are at risk of getting caught up in "senseless disputes among each other," European Council President Donald Tusk warned Saturday before the start of a G7 summit.

"This is another G7 summit which will be a difficult test of unity and solidarity of the free world and its leaders," Tusk said at a news conference in the French city of Biarritz, where leaders will spend two days confronting the risk of a weakening global economy dragged down by trade wars, the threat of climate change, disputes with Iran and Russia, and an array of other vexing issues.

The G7, a club of the world's most advanced, industrialized democracies, has been under severely disrupted in recent years by U.S. President Donald Trump, who has sowed dissent — and injected unease and uncertainty — from the moment he arrived at his first leaders' summit in Taormina, Italy in 2017.
