Trump seeks to shape world opinion on China with expanded G-7

Trump sits with his lips pursed arms folded

"I don't feel properly represents what's going on in the world".

A spokesperson for the prime minister said, "The G7 has been a topic of recent high-level exchange".

Australia yesterday said it would welcome an official invitation and that there had been contact on the matter between Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the US.

Scott Morrison has confirmed he has been in talks with the United States about attending the postponed G7 summit, after the USA president indicated he wanted to expand the event from a "very outdated group of countries" to discuss China.

Australia was invited to the D10, along with South Korea, India, and the G7 nations, barring Russian Federation and China.

"Strengthening worldwide co-operation among like-minded countries is valued at a time of unprecedented global challenges", said the spokesperson.

This will be the second time in a row that India will be at the so called "high table" of a group previously seen as representing the world's most industrialised countries.

India Records more than 8000 New Infections in a Day
The nightly curfew will be maintained, but the hours will be changed from 9 pm to 5 am from the existing 7 pm to 7 am. In Delhi, there are total 19, 844 coronavirus infections, while in Maharashtra the total number has risen to 67,655.

Trump said the meeting could be held the weekend before or the weekend after the UN General Assembly, which is scheduled to open - potentially virtually, not in person - on September 15 and run through September 30.

The White House initially announced in March that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the G7 meeting set for June of the seven major industrial nations - Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, along with the USA - would be held by video conference instead of at Camp David. Senior officials of G-7 countries are expected to discuss the expansion in the weeks leading to a rescheduled summit in the U.S. in September. According to White House Director of Strategic Communications Alyssa Farah, Trump wants to include other traditional allies, including Five Eyes countries, and coronavirus-hit nations to talk about China, CNN reported.

"We've shied away as a really significant power because Australia felt "at ease" in our own neighbourhood rather than 'rising above the pack, '" Bergin told The Epoch Times. "Think a good time would be before the election..."

"So it might be a G-10, G-11, and it could be after the election is over", Trump said.

Mr Trump cancelled the initially-planned meeting, before last week saying he was considering holding it again on a similar date, and expressing a wish for it to be a face-to-face gathering, rather than be conducted by video conferencing.

It could happen in September, either before or after the UN General Assembly, Trump said, adding that "maybe I'll do it after the election".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has indicated his intent to attend the summit in Washington, but German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly will not travel to the U.S. It's unclear if either committed to a June gathering or encouraged a postponement.
