Later in the day, Biden and first lady Jill Biden met with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before traveling to Brussels for a meeting of NATO heads of state and government.
Here’s what to know:
- Biden has been asking other G-7 leaders to form a unified front against China’s use of forced labor, arguing Saturday that a stronger stance is a moral and practical imperative. However, not all of the allies have been as enthusiastic.
- Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson took an unexpectedly sharp tone with European Union leaders on Saturday after discussing post-Brexit rules for Northern Ireland, in a break from the message of unity that G-7 leaders have been trying to send during the summit.
- The shadow of former president Donald Trump has loomed over the G-7 summit, with Biden facing questions about the state of U.S. democracy in his first trip abroad as president.
