The group was scheduled to meet in Pittsburgh this week, but cancelled its summit due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Germany newspaper Der Spiegel reported the other members of the G7 wanted to use the term ‘Covid-19,’ which is the term the World Health Organisation uses.
France suggested the organisation discuss the virus during its meeting, while Mr Pompeo refused.
The State Department argued that heads of state had already discussed and dealt with the issue, so the organisation shouldn’t make a statement.
Mr Pompeo did not deny the reports about the disagreement, and suggested the G7 didn’t agree on everything.
Mr Pompeo repeated claims that China concealed evidence of the virus, according to US News and World Report.
Mr Pompeo said officials proposing the idea were “crazy talking.”. »
