- Story Text: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with Japanese Prime MInister Shinzo Abe for bilateral talks on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France on Monday (August 26).
Johnson is making his G7 debut at a time when he is struggling to persuade EU capitals to renegotiate Britain's exit from the bloc, which Johnson has said will happen on October 31 come what may.
This year's summit has been troubled by differences between U.S. President Donald Trump and Western allies over a raft of issues from U.S. intensifying trade war with China to the nuclear ambitions of both Iran and North Korea, and the question of whether Russian President Vladimir Putin should be readmitted to the group.
The summit gathers Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States.
