International Desk, Delhi Magazine: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Italy this week to participate in the annual G7 summit, marking his first foreign trip since assuming office for a third consecutive term. The summit will take place from June 13 to 15 at Borgo Egnazia, a luxury resort in Italy’s Apulia region.

This year’s G7 summit is expected to focus heavily on the ongoing war in Ukraine and the Gaza conflict. The G7, a coalition of seven of the world’s most advanced economies, comprises the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Canada, and Japan.

Key global leaders attending the summit include US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will also be present to discuss Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

According to sources familiar with Modi’s travel plans, he will depart for Italy on June 13, although an official announcement has yet to be made. Accompanying him will be a high-level delegation likely including External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra, and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. During his visit, Modi is also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings, including with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

This will not be Modi’s first appearance at a G7 summit, as he attended the previous summit in Hiroshima, Japan, in May of last year. Italy, the current chair of the G7, is hosting this year’s summit and has extended invitations to leaders from 11 developing countries across Africa, South America, and the Indo-Pacific region. Additionally, while the European Union is not a member of the G7, it will participate in the summit.
