Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to attend the G7 Leaders’ Summit in person: British Prime Minister

OTTAWA – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the G7 Leaders’ Summit in person next month.

OTTAWA – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the G7 Leaders’ Summit in person next month.

A reading of a phone conversation between Johnson and Trudeau on Friday indicates that leaders look forward to seeing each other in person in Cornwall, UK, in two weeks.

Trudeau has previously said he hoped to attend the meeting, which will be June 11-13, but he has not yet confirmed and his office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Foreign Minister Marc Garneau went to a meeting with his G7 counterparts earlier this month and was quarantined in a hotel upon his return, but a government-commissioned report recommended Thursday that Canada drop this requirement for air travelers.

Reading the call between Johnson and Trudeau also indicates that they have agreed that the UK and Canada are aligned with foreign policy goals and will apply this unity to the challenges discussed at the G7 summit.

It says this includes tackling climate change, increasing global access to COVID-19 vaccines, and improving gender equality and girls’ education.

They also discussed strengthening relations between the UK and Canada, including accepting a comprehensive fair trade agreement and joining the UK in the Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement, as well as a number of issues of foreign policy, the report says.
