Nafeza 2 world - The shaky political situation in many G7 countries is causing some observers to have low expectations about what can be achieved.

Natalie Tocci, the director of the Italian Institute for International Affairs, warned that "if anything will come out of this summit, it's the fear of a catastrophe playing out before our eyes," citing possible new governments led by Donald Trump in the US and the far-right in France on the horizon.

Also on the agenda of the summit at the Savelletri resort is the following:

  • War in Gaza: All G7 leaders have previously backed US President Joe Biden's plan to end hostilities, external - including an immediate ceasefire, the release of hostages, and an increase in aid

  • Migration: Italy is asking other nations to contribute financially to its Mattei Plan, which gives African countries grants and loans to develop their economies. But many commentators suspect it may be cover for Italy to crack down on migration

  • Economic security: An anti-coercion pact that was adopted after last year's meeting is designed to stop countries - such as China and Russia - using their economic strength to impose their will on others. It is thought the US is keen for the issue to be discussed again this time

  • Safety of AI: This was also raised last year, with the set-up of a process to promote "safe, secure, and trustworthy AI worldwide"

Pope Francis - who will become the first pontiff to attend a G7 summit - will be addressing the subject of artificial intelligence at the conference.

He has previously called for global regulation of AI, warning of its danger to ethics and human rights.
