  • The summit was virtual; the anger and disagreement among EU leaders was very real.
  • The European Parliament held a virtual plenary session with remote voting on Thursday morning, and earlier on Thursday afternoon, G20 leaders held a videoconference to discuss their own collective response to the crisis.
  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel, however, made clear her view that corona bonds should not be part of Europe’s response.
