Germany: G7 Summit is scheduled to take place today in Bavarian Alps of Germany. The G7 summit is expected to be attended by the leaders of the richest countries in the world. Sources say that the Crisis in Ukraine will be the main agenda of the G7 summit in Germany.
Earlier, on his arrival to the venue of G7 summit, US President Barack Obama called on for the summit to stand against the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
Apart from the Ukraine’s crisis, Greece’s debt issues and the topic of Global warming containment will be on the agenda of the G7 Summit. It is also well known that Russia has been removed from the Summit last year due to the annexation of Crimea. Hence the formerly known G8, is now only G7 with Canada, France, Italy, United States, Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom. The group discusses various economic issues primarily, in its meetings.
The Russian President Vladimir Putin will be the focus of this summit. The Western countries allegedly accuse that Russia has been sending its soldiers in to eastern Ukraine to felicitate the rebels. However, the Russian President crossed off the allegations saying that any Russian soldiers there were just volunteers.
The Summit Nations wanted an agreement between the G7 nations, in a way to support or back up any EU nation from Russian domination. The West has also been increasing its military presence in the European countries against Russian interferences.
However, Mr. Vladimir Putin in an interview to a French media said, that Russia was not a threat to any other nation and that it has its own problems to deal with. He went on to say that a person can only imagine in a dream that Russia would attack Nato. He added that wars are far away in the developed modern world, the BBC News reports.
There were protests before the start of the Summit, which resulted in the protesters being carried to the near by hospital with injuries, after the police charged against them. The summit has been guarded by nearly 17,000 police.
