President Joe Biden is traveling to the United Kingdom, Belgium and Switzerland for his first international trip since taking office.

Biden will meet with several allies and partners and attend the Group of Seven summit being hosted by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in Cornwall. He will also attend a NATO summit and a US-European Union summit in Brussels.

The trip comes as Biden seeks to renew the US’ commitment to its allies and partners abroad and underscore his own commitment to working with other countries to solve global problems.

The President will also travel to Geneva, Switzerland, to hold a long anticipated summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
