Biden Attend G7 Meeting In Italy

June 13, 2024

President Biden traveled to another meeting of world leaders and, once again, weirdness ensued and throughout this post we’ve posted videos.

Mr. Biden, the last of the leaders to arrive at the G7 summit in Italy on Thursday, was greeted by the host country’s prime minister, Giorgia Meloni. Upon shuffling onto the stage where Ms. Meloni waited, Mr. Biden kissed her on the head and appeared to sniff her hair. Following a brief exchange, she directed the president toward a frame bearing the G7 logo, which each leader signed with a marker. Before departing the platform, he offered an awkward salute to the prime minister.

The G7, comprising Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain, and the U.S., convenes annually to discuss economic policy and security issues. This year’s summit, running through Saturday, will address global conflicts, the spread of artificial intelligence, and issues affecting Africa, alongside new pledges of assistance for Ukraine amid its war conflict with Russia.

The summit will also mark a historic moment, as Pope Francis on Friday will become the first pontiff to address the G7. His agenda includes discussing the ethical concerns surrounding artificial intelligence and calling for peaceful resolutions to the conflicts in Ukraine and between Israel and Hamas.
