From June 26 to 28, President Alberto Fernández will participate in the G7 summit that will take place in Bavaria, Germany, thanks to the invitation of the German Foreign Minister, Olaf Scholz. According to the national authorities, this participation is the first result of the meetings that the Argentine president held in Europe at the beginning of May.
The main topics on the agenda of the meeting will be around climate protection, the fight against pandemics, the food crisis and the strengthening of international cooperation, in addition to democracies around the world. But there will also be talk of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a conflict that has been going on for three months, thousands of deaths and millions of displaced people.

It should be remembered that the war in Eastern Europe was one of the topics in Fernández’s tour of the continent. There, the German chancellor sought to convince the president to apply economic sanctions to the regime of Vladimir Putin. However, the Argentine president preferred to question this type of punishment, alluding to the fact that “they have a very negative impact on the rest of the world” and called for “finding a quick path to end the war conflict” because “we need the economic world to be in order” .
Fernández will travel to Germany after participating in the Summit of the Americas -in Los Angeles, California-, where he will be critical of Joe Biden’s foreign agenda regarding Russia’s war against Ukraine and the decision to exclude Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela of the regional forum for being partners of the Kremlin.
