G-7 leaders relax before heavy discussion

The leaders of the world’s seven richest nations need some time to relax.

Several G-7 leaders strolled the streets of Taormina on May 26, before watching an airshow over the Sicilian resort town.

Later in the day the group will get down to the hard work.

These leaders want agreement on some important and controversial issues, including terrorism, trade, climate change, and the conflict in Syria.

The group includes some first-timers.

U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron are at their first G-7 summit. Prime ministers Theresa May of the UK and Italy’s Paolo Gentiloni are new as well.

The G-7 includes Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States.
