Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to attend virtual outreach sessions of the G-7 summit on June 12 and 13. The United Kingdom officials will be chairing the summit in which they had invited India, Australia, South Korea, and South Africa for the sessions. Earlier in May, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said that amid the COVID-19 situation in the country, PM Modi would not go on a personal visit to the UK to attend the summit. This will be the second time that the Prime Minister will attend the G-7 meeting. In the year 2019, India was invited to the G-7 summit chaired by France.
