United States President Donald Trump revealed in a press briefing he wants the Group of Seven (G7) summit to take place "some time" after the November presidential elections.

Asked about whether he intends to hold the meeting in person in Washington as initially planned, Trump said he had talked to many member countries and that the event could take place through teleconference.

The president went on to say leaders of some nations that are not part of the organization will receive an invitation to join the meeting and that Russia's President Vladimir Putin may be amongst them.
