US President Joe Biden will join the leaders of the G7 countries on Friday, February 19, at a virtual summit, where he plans to discuss efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and restore the global economy.
This is reported by CNN.
It is noted that this is his first meeting with the leaders of theвЂќ Big Seven вЂњ as president of the United States.
Biden will focus on the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including coordinating the production, distribution, and delivery of the vaccine.
