Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been invited to virtually attend the outreach sessions of the G-7 summit on June 12 and 13. The United Kingdom is chairing the summit and has invited India, Australia, South Korea and South Africa for the sessions. Last month, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had said that due to the coronavirus situation in the country, PM Modi would not go on a personal visit to 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.
