Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced he will attend in person the G7 Leaders’ Summit from June 11 to 13 and the NATO Summit on June 14 followed by the Canada-European Union Summit in Brussels.
Prime Minister Trudeau said that global leaders need to come together to tackle the challenges that face the world now and in the future.
The Prime Minister’s Office says he and the Canadian delegation travelling to the U.K. and Belgium will follow strict public health protocols and procedures during their visit, while in transit and when they arrive home.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Friday that Prime Minister Trudeau would attend the G7 Leaders’ Summit in person, but the Canadian prime minister didn’t immediately confirm at the time.
Prime Minister Trudeau says in a statement Wednesday that Canada will continue to work with its international partners to keep people healthy, create jobs and opportunity, grow the middle class, fight climate change and strengthen democratic values.
This year’s G7 Summit will focus on co-ordinated approaches to promoting international rules and human rights, democracy, and gender equality.
During the Canada-EU Summit, Trudeau will meet with the president of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, to discuss areas of further collaboration.
His statement says the leaders will discuss ways to tackle climate change, fight COVID-19 and further economic ties at the G7 Summit.
The G7 includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. In addition to G7 members, the United Kingdom has also invited leaders from Australia, India, South Africa and South Korea to the 2021 G7 Summit.
