(Juhi Aishwary, Intern journalist): US President Donald Trump is extremely angry with China and is ready to do anything to surround China. As such, they plan to include India, Russia, South Korea, and Australia in the G-7. Trump has deferred the summit of the G-7, the world’s seven largest economic powers, until September.
However, Britain is not completely agreed on this proposal of America. Britain wants to convert the G-7 into the G-10, which has no objection to the other three countries but wants to keep Russia apart.
This is why India is important for America:
China’s relations with America are not good. US President Donald Trump has said this publicly many times. India seems to be the biggest ally in the attempts to siege China. Due to the distance between the United States and China, it needs an ally that is close to China’s borders. In such a situation, there is no country stronger and bigger than India. This is the reason that America has given new heights to relations with India in the last few years. The US has provided the State of the Art weapons to India. At the same time, the exchange of intelligence has also increased.
The enemy of an enemy is a friend:
Here we are told that the enemy of an enemy is a friend. The relationship between India and the United States has improved for many other reasons because of China’s growing aggression is a matter of concern for India as well as America. At the same time, China has shown eyes to Australia many times. The growing tension between India and China on the border is also asking the US and India to come together.
Understand in this way, the G-7 is called The Group of Seven (G-7), an economic organization comprising seven major economies of the world. These include the United States, Britain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, and Canada. Its first conference was held in 1975 in France. First, it had six countries, which discussed the exchange of ideas for possible solutions to the global economic crisis. Canada joined it the following year.
It works like this:
Each member country is handed over the chairmanship for one year, in turn, hosts a two-day conference. Issues such as energy, climate change, and global security were raised in the summits held during the recent past.
Russia was involved:
Russia joined the group at that time, known as the G-8 in 1998, but Russia was ousted in 2014 over the annexation of Crimea.
