United States wants further G7 video calls in April, May - Germany

BERLIN (Reuters) - The United States wants to have further video calls with the Group of Seven nations in April and May, a spokesman for the German government said on Friday, as the world battles a coronavirus outbreak.

The White House on Thursday said U.S. President Donald Trump will cancel an in-person meeting of G7 leaders at Camp David in June because of the coronavirus and will hold a video conference instead.
