The Group of Seven Foreign Ministers' Meeting is set to open Monday in London.
It's the first such gathering in more than two years.
The BBC's diplomatic correspondent James Landale reports.
A lot of the focus will be on China because that is just the issue for so many countries around the world now.
The United States is setting the tone on this.
The rest of the world is going to have to work out how they come to their own decision.
Whether they challenge China, whether they push back on things like the Uyghurs in Hong Kong, but equally how do they cooperate with China on the other big issues like global trade, the pandemic and obviously, climate change.
South Korean Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong is scheduled to attend the session as a guest as well as hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts on the sidelines.
The first of them will be tonight at 6:30 p.m. Seoul time with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
The two top diplomats will cover a wide range of issues, including preparations for a summit of their leaders later this month, North Korea and COVID-19.
