Joe Biden to travel to UK in June as part of first overseas trip

US President Joe Biden will travel to the United Kingdom and Belgium in June for his first overseas trip, the White House has said.

The trip aims to “highlight his commitment to restoring our alliances, revitalising the trans-Atlantic relationship, and working in close cooperation with our allies,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

During his visit, Mr Biden will attend the G7 Summit in Cornwall, held 11-13 June. There, he will hold bilateral meetings with Boris Johnson and other G7 leaders.

The US leader will then travel to Brussels for a NATO Summit on 14 June.

The White House announcement came as Mr Biden concluded hosting a global climate summit that signalled a renewed US engagement in environmental efforts.
