Johnson invites Australia to G7 Summit

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has invited Australia to the G7 Summit next year as the United Kingdom seeks to build stronger alliances in the Indo-Pacific.

In the face of growing Chinese power and influence, Mr Johnson has also invited India and South Korea as guest nations to the high-powered international summit.

Downing Street said the three invitations delivered on the British leader’s ambition to work with a group of like-minded democracies to advance shared interests and tackle common challenges.

Mr Johnson has also announced a trip to India early next year, his first major bilateral visit since taking office, and the first since the UK departure from the European Union.

His office said the Indian visit underscored Mr Johnson’s commitment to step up the UK’s engagement with the Indo-Pacific region.

“As a key player in the Indo-Pacific region, India is an increasingly indispensable partner for the United Kingdom as we work to boost jobs and growth, confront shared threats to our security and protect our planet,” Mr Johnson said.
