New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to leave for Italy to attend the G7 Summit on Thursday.

Italy has invited India to the Summit of 7 nations- US, UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and France- as an outreach country.

Prime Minister Modi is likely to hold a meeting with his Italian counterpart Giorgia Meloni during the summit, which is scheduled for June 13-15.

The summit is likely to be dominated by issues like Russia-Ukraine war, Israel-Hamas battle.

Apart from Meloni, Modi is also expected to meet US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the summit.

As per a report by NDTV, India has defence and maritime cooperation as its agenda in the summit.

"He (Joe Biden) expects to see Prime Minister Modi here (in Italy). It's up to the Indians to formally confirm his attendance, but our - our expectation is that the two of them will have the opportunity to encounter one another," US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said.
