Yomiuri wrote that the leaders of France, the UK, and Germany responded positively to President Trump’s idea of holding a G7 summit in Washington in late June, saying that if the summit is held as planned, it will be the first time for the G7 leaders to meet in person since the coronavirus outbreak began. The paper speculated that the Trump administration is making arrangements to hold the summit at the White House and Camp David. The paper further speculated that Prime Minister Abe is hoping to exercise leadership in discussing the response to infectious diseases at the planned G7 summit, saying that Abe expressed at a news conference on Monday his intention to propose to the other G7 leaders the creation of a “patent pool” to increase developing nations’ access to coronavirus treatments.
