From his twitter handle, the acting president wrote: “I was at the G7 summit today where a special outreach forum was held with selected African countries.”

The acting president used the opportunity to congratulate French President-elect, Emmanuel Macron whom he sat beside in the meeting.

The choice of Sicily is to draw attention to Africa and the millions of migrants who risk their lives crossing to Europe from the Mediterranean.

Earlier discussions at the summit focussed on terrorism and climate change.
