British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has formally invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in to the G7 summit, scheduled to be held in June.
Cheong Wa Dae revealed Friday that Moon received a personal letter of invitation and plans to reply, expressing his commitment to making contributions so that this year's gathering of the Group of Seven nations can produce a significant accomplishment.
According to presidential officials, in the letter, Johnson pointed out that it is important for "the voice" of South Korea to be reflected in global efforts to terminate the COVID-19 situation and prevent another pandemic as well as to protect free trade and respond to climate change.
The prime minister earlier stated that Britain would play host to an in-person summit meeting of G7 leaders, with South Korea, Australia and India invited as guest nations.
Meanwhile, Johnson promised to attend the second P4G summit on green growth and sustainable development, which is supposed to take place in Seoul in May.
