The G7 is about to embark on a historic summit, but the summit will be overshadowed by the G8, which is a non-binding body that does not require countries to hold any events.
And despite the G20 summit coming up in the United States next month, Australia is not planning to participate.
The Australian Government has already ruled out hosting the summit, saying it would be “a distraction”.
But it has not ruled out holding the event at a venue close to the summit.
“The G7 has already stated that it is not going to hold the G6, and the G21 is not a G7,” the Minister for Communications, Malcolm Turnbull, told ABC TV’s Four Corners program.
“So the Government is not putting any further pressure on Australia to go ahead with this event.
The Prime Minister has not decided to hold this event in the Northern Territory.”
He said it was up to the Government to decide whether it would host the summit or not.
Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull says he is not sure if Australia will host the G9 summit in Northern Territory, but is not ruling out a move at this stage.
But Mr Turnbull said he would not rule out a visit to the region in the future, if the conditions were right.
He added: “We are still a very close and close friend to the Northern Territories, and so it’s a very big question mark about whether we are going to go.”
Mr Turnbull has been criticised for the Government’s failure to get a deal on the climate change accord, despite the Government being the largest party in the Senate.
However, he said that he was confident that the agreement would be signed, despite opposition from some MPs and a handful of Indigenous leaders.
Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Abbott, speaks at a press conference in Canberra on June 15, 2017, in response to the United Nations Climate Summit.
Mr Abbott has been an outspoken critic of the climate deal.
Last week, he made a surprise appearance at the UN Climate Summit, telling delegates that the United Kingdom, France and the US were not making progress in reducing carbon emissions.
While some of the world’s leading climate change negotiators are now due to meet again next week to try to reach an agreement on the deal, Mr Abbott’s criticism of the deal has not stopped him from speaking out against the deal.
“If you want to keep the G77s global warming goals, you’ve got to put the US and China in the Group of 20,” he said.
“And I say that to every member of the G80. “
If you’re not going after China, you’re just going to create a climate chaos.”
“And I say that to every member of the G80.
If you’re the only country in the G83s that isn’t reducing emissions, you should not be in the climate conference.”
In his latest statement on the Climate Summit (pdf), Mr Abbott said that Australia would be the first country to host the climate summit.
“I think we have to remember that Australia is the largest economy in the world, we are a major energy producer, we have the largest number of coal-fired power stations in the country,” he told reporters.

It is our responsibility as a global leader to lead, not follow.”
