World leaders gathered in southwest France for the G-7 Summit over the weekend, where they were slated for several closely watched meetings to examine major global issues.
European Council President Donald Tusk declared this year's summit was "a difficult test of the unity and solidarity of the free world and its leaders," as countries faced issues including impending trade wars and global climate concerns.
Despite the tensions, the leaders' spouses put on a relaxed display while touring a nearby village, where they enjoyed a stunning villa, wine tasting, and traditional performances.
