Watch: Sunak and G7 leaders pose for family photo in Italy

Watch as Rishi Sunak and other G7 world leaders posed for a family photo in Italy on Thursday, 13 June.

The prime minister is taking a break from general election campaigning to head to the summit in Puglia, Italy, where he is set to announce new funding for war-torn Ukraine.

The summit focused on issues such as global conflicts, the spread of artificial intelligence, and climate change.

Leaders attending the summit included France’s Emmanuel Macron, Germany’s Olaf Scholz and US president Joe Biden.

Mr Sunak will be in Borgo Egnazia resort until Saturday.

“From Ukraine to the Middle East, we will be discussing significant global threats at the summit,” Mr Sunak said in a statement.

“Such threats are why it is so vital to strengthen the UK’s national defence, through our commitment to spend 2.5 per cent of GDP on defence by 2030.”

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will also be at the resort, which is near Fasano, in the Puglia region of southern Italy.

His appearance came after he and Sir Keir Starmer faced tough questions from audience members as they took part a leaders debate on Sky News.

The PM was booed after claiming the junior doctors’ strike had an impact on NHS waiting lists, while the Labour leader was branded a “political robot.”
