the Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on information policy Alexei Pushkov commented on the refusal of German Chancellor Angela Merkel personally participate in the G7 summit, which the US President and the organizer of the meeting of leaders of the countries “Big seven” proposed to be held in face-to-face format.
the Reason for this decision is not in pandemic coronavirus, and in sharp disagreement with the U.S. leader Donald trump, said Pushkov. According to him, the epidemic in Germany is declining, and Merkel could be present, if not disputes with the President of the United States, including the “Nord stream-2”. “Trump is said to be very unhappy. But even if Merkel will not eventually go “Big six” – too bad,” wrote a Russian Senator in his Twitter.
Earlier it was reported that trump “is in a rage” because of the refusal of the German Chancellor to come to the end of June in Washington at the G7 summit due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation. According to the publication Politico, during a telephone conversation last week between trump and Merkel “were heated disagreements on topics such as NATO, the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2″, the relations between Russia and Germany, and also regarding China”.
Merkel has decided not to go to the summit of G7 in the United States. The reason, of course, is not an epidemic – it goes in Germany on the decline, and sharp disagreements with trump, including Nord stream-2. Trump is said to be very unhappy. But even if Merkel will not eventually go “Big six” – too bad.
