A new economic summit rule has made it impossible for the U.S. to host a summit with the European Union.
But the rules do allow the U-S.
and Japan to sign bilateral trade agreements, a key focus of Trump’s economic policy agenda.
The U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution on Friday that says the United States and Japan can’t hold the same economic summit as the European Council in 2018 and 2020, which will be held in 2019 and 2020.
The resolution also prohibits the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand from holding economic summits with the U of A, which is hosting the next meeting of the General Assembly in December.
The U.K. and Australia are both members of the G20 group of nations, but are not part of the group that has been hosting the summit since it was formed in 2000.
The EU and the United Nations have been negotiating for the last decade to extend the Summit of the Americas, which would be the first-ever trade summit of the North American continent, to 2020.
Trump has said the summit would be held after the next election, but there’s been no indication he’s leaning toward holding the event.
The G20 is scheduled to be held from Oct. 19 to Dec. 12 in Mexico City.
Trump said he would welcome a bilateral trade agreement with the EU, but he has not said how he would go about getting one.
Trump also has repeatedly criticized the G-20 for not meeting its goal of having a summit by 2022, which he said would bring the region more together.
The summit is the largest gathering of the world’s major economies and is a top priority for Trump, who has promised to build on the historic summit in 2020.
But that goal has fallen through and the G7 and the BRICS nations have agreed to hold a summit in 2018.
