Watch live: World leaders arrive for G7 summit in Cornwall, England

Leaders from the world’s largest developed economies arrived in Cornwall on Friday where they plan to address a number of ongoing crises.

At least one of the announcements likely to be made at the in-person meeting, the first since 2019, is a pledge of one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to nations who need them.

US President Joe Biden, on his first overseas trip since taking office in January 2021, has pledged to donate 500 million COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Campaigners hope the world leaders will take firm steps towards addressing climate change.

Leaders are also expected to endorse a minimum global corporate tax rate after finance ministers agreed on a rate of 15% in meetings over the weekend and discuss a host of foreign policy issues.
