The president of the United States, Donald Trump, will participate on Saturday in the G20 summit, organized by Saudi Arabia in a virtual format due to the covid-19 pandemic.
“President Trump will attend the G20 online summit tomorrow,” Saturday, a senior US official told AFP.
Saudi Arabia will host this virtual G20 summit this weekend with a tight schedule, focused on the consequences of the pandemic.
The pandemic has killed more than 1.3 million people worldwide since the end of December 2019, according to the latest count prepared by AFP based on official figures.
The shadow of the difficult political transition in the United States will probably also hover over the meeting. Trump refuses to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election, announced two weeks ago.
The G20 brings together the heads of state and government of the 20 richest nations in the world.
