Biden will meet with Johnson on June 10, ahead of the Group of Seven summit behind held in southwestern England. Johnson is hosting this year’s G7 summit, which is being held in Cornwall from June 11 to 13.
The President is also set to hold bilateral meetings with the other leaders of G7 countries — which consists of the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan — during the visit.
The President participated in a virtual G7 event earlier this year and discussed efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. Last year’s in-person summit was canceled because of the pandemic.
The summit and meetings with foreign leaders will come the week after Biden is set to announce his plans to distribute millions of coronavirus vaccines worldwide, a decision that is expected to be announced after months of deliberation.
Biden said earlier this month the US would share an additional 20 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines by the end of next month on top of the 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine the President had already committed to sharing by July 4.
The President will meet with Erdogan “to discuss the full range of bilateral and regional issues,” the White House says.
After the NATO summit, Biden will participate in the US-European Union Summit on June 15. The leaders will discuss global health security, global economic recovery, the climate crisis, digital and trade cooperation, strengthening democracy and addressing mutual foreign policy concerns, the White House says.
Biden will also meet with King Philippe of Belgium and Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo.
While in Geneva, Biden will also meet with Swiss President Guy Parmelin and Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis.
