President Donald Trump continued his marathon of meetings with world leaders Friday on the fifth stop of his overseas trip in Taormina, Italy, where he is attending his first Group of Seven (G7) summit.
The annual meeting convenes the leaders of the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, Italy and Canada to discuss and promote solutions for major world issues.
Ahead of his meeting with G7 leaders Friday morning, Trump met with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss North Korea, among other issues.
“It’s a big problem, it’s a world problem,” the president said. “It will be solved at some point. It will be solved, you can bet on that.”
Abe, who joined Trump at Mar-a-Lago in February, joked about playing golf.
“There is one unfortunate thing I have to confess, this time around we will not be able to play golf together,” said Abe.
