New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not travel to UK to attend the G-7 summit in June, the government informed on Tuesday.

PM Modi was to be a special invitee to the G-7 summit in Cornwall on June 11-13 at UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's invitation.

"While appreciating the invitation to the Prime Minister by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to attend the G7 Summit as a Special Invitee, given the prevailing COVID situation, it has been decided that the Prime Minister will not attend the G-7 Summit in person," a Foreign Ministry spokesperson was quoted as saying in media reports.

US President Joe Biden will reportedly attend the meeting of the G-7, which brings together some of the most developed economies around the world like the UK, US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

June's summit will be the first in-person event of the group in two years.

The UK Prime Minister had invited India as a guest, along with Australia and South Korea.
