Short notice: World in turmoil
It is getting more and more chaotic, the US is sinking in a state of emergency, China is laughing, and the Sino-American conflict is escalating.
Trump wants to expand the G7 to the G11 to include India, Australia, South Korea and Russia, which is then intended as an anti-China front. Merkel doesn´t want to have Putin-Russia on board, neither does she want have an anti-China front and, like the EU also no sanctions against China for Hong Kong. In addition, Merkel does not want to take part in the summit to give Trump campaign help, especially since he also wanted to present it as a symbol of the aaleged success of his corona easing. Putin makes it clear that Trump is right when he describes the G 7 as obsolete, but not only wants to be a fence guest, and certainly not to belong to a G11 anti-China front. He sees the actual format in the G 20 and wants China to be included. Therefore Trump’s firm idea to position Russia and NATO against China is illusonary. At best, the Russians are neutral in a Sino-American conflict. But as I said, at best.
