The White House announced Friday that US President Joe Biden will travel to Great Britain and Belgium in June on its first overseas trip. In Cornwall, UK, the American leader will attend the G7 meeting, and in Brussels, the NATO, European Union and US summits.
White House spokeswoman Jane Psaki explained that Biden’s visit to Europe is supposed to do so aimed at “confirming his commitment to renewing our alliances” and “revitalizing transatlantic relations.”
On June 11-13, Biden will attend the G7 summit in Cornwall. He told the White House that topics for talks would include pluralism, public health, economics, climate change and democratic values.
The American leader’s stay in Great Britain also includes a meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
From the British Isles, Biden will travel to Brussels, where on June 14 he will participate in the NATO summit. It will also hold meetings with leaders of NATO countries in the Belgian capital.
It is scheduled to hold a summit between the United States and the European Union with the US President in Belgium. It will discuss, among other things, issues of “global health security”, “stimulating global economic recovery”, “combating climate change” and “democracy promotion” – as stated in the White House statement.
