华盛顿——白宫周四表示,由于感染了冠状病毒,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普将取消6月在戴维营(Camp David)举行的七国集团(G7)领导人面对面会议,取而代之的是视频会议。


这一决定是在世界各国封锁边境、禁止旅行以阻止病毒传播之际做出的。


本周早些时候,特朗普与世界主要工业化国家领导人举行了视频会议,并计划在4月、5月和6月再次举行视频会议,届时将在马里兰州的总统度假地举行实体会议。


白宫经济顾问、特朗普的七国集团“协调人”拉里·库德洛(Larry Kudlow)已经通知了他的同行。


”为了让每个国家集中所有的资源应对的健康和经济挑战COVID-19胜过总统的方向,国家经济委员会主任和美国2020年G7拉里Kudlow夏尔巴人已经通知他的夏尔巴人的同事,七国集团领导人峰会上,美国将主机在戴维营6月将会通过电视电话会议,"白宫发言人贾德迪尔公司在一份声明中说。


他说:“白宫还通知其他七国集团成员,为了继续密切协调,总统将在4月和5月召开领导人视频会议,就像他本周所做的那样。”


白宫将这一改变视为对抗病毒缓解措施的一部分。各国通常会派出大型代表团和领导人出席七国集团峰会,来自世界各地的记者也会来报道他们的会议。


特朗普原本打算把七国集团会议的重点放在经济上,避开气候变化等经常被列为议程首位的传统议题。他最初计划在自己位于佛罗里达州的一处房产里举办领导人峰会,但在有人批评他会从会议中获得经济利益后,他取消了这些计划。


七国集团由美国、意大利、日本、加拿大、法国、德国、英国以及欧盟组成。

WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump will cancel an in-person meeting of G7 leaders at Camp David in June because of the coronavirus and will hold a videoconference instead, the White House said on Thursday.

 

The decision comes as nations around the world seal their borders and ban travel to stop the virus' spread.

 

Trump held a videoconference with the leaders of the world’s major industrialized countries earlier this week and plans to repeat that in April, May and June, when the physical meeting at the presidential retreat in Maryland was scheduled to take place.

 

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who also serves as Trump's G7 "sherpa," has informed his counterparts about the move.

 

"In order for each country to focus all of its resources on responding to the health and economic challenges of COVID-19 and at President Trump’s direction, National Economic Council Director and US Sherpa for the 2020 G7 Larry Kudlow has informed his Sherpa colleagues that the G7 Leaders’ Summit the US was set to host in June at Camp David will now be done by video-teleconference," White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement to Reuters.

 

"The White House also informed the other G7 members that in order to continue close coordination, the President will convene the Leaders’ via video teleconference in April and May just as he did this week,” he said.

 

The White House views the change as part of mitigation efforts to fight the virus. Countries normally send large delegations with their leaders to G7 summits and journalists from around the world convene to cover their meeting as well.

 

Trump had intended to focus the G7 meeting on the economy, eschewing traditional topics that often top the agenda such as climate change. He initially planned to host the leaders' group at one of his properties in Florida but canceled those plans after criticism that he would profit financially from the meeting.

 

The G7 is made up of the United States, Italy, Japan, Canada, France, Germany, Britain as well as the European Union.
