The G8 nations will announce Friday that they will no longer meet separately without the entire G20, reports NBC's Chuck Todd.
The G8 nations will instead meet the night before any G20 meeting, particularly when it comes to national security issues that historically the G8 has dealt with.
According to the White House, the G8 is not being dissolved.
Instead it will conduct its meetings combined with G20 meetings – which means it will hold only one meeting annually.
China is not a member of the G8 nations.
South Korea is likely to be the venue for next year’s G20 meeting.
That will be when the G8 nations will meet next under this new umbrella.
