Biden’s big week, Israel poised for change and boxing’s dark legacy
It’s a big week for US president Joe Biden who, after four and a half months of hectic domestic wrangling, is now trying to make up for lost time on the international front. His first presidential trip overseas takes in the G7 summit in England, followed by meetings with Nato and the EU in Belgium, and concludes with a head-to-head with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Geneva. After the America first agenda of the Trump years, David Smith asks whether Biden can persuade a sceptical global community that America is back on the team. Then, economics correspondent Richard Partington looks at what we can expect from a landmark G7 commitment to tackle gaps in the global tax system.
