US President Joe Biden intends to travel to Germany and Spain, from June 25-28, to attend the G7 and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summits, the White House announced on Wednesday. 

"President Biden will travel to the Schloss Elmau Hotel in southern Germany on June 25 to attend the G7 leaders' summit," White House spokeswoman Karen-Jean-Pierre said in a statement, according to the Russian News agency "Sputnik".

"The president and G7 leaders will discuss a number of pressing global issues, including the G7's unwavering support for a democratic and prosperous sovereign Ukraine, economic resilience, as well as addressing the climate crisis, infrastructure development, global health security, in addition to the energy and food crisis caused by aggressive Russian war," the statement added.

The statement indicated that Biden will travel on June 28 to Madrid to attend the NATO summit, explaining that the allies will adopt a new strategic concept for NATO's transformation during the next decade.

It is worth mentioning that a small private airplane mistakenly entered restricted airspace near President Joe Biden’s Delaware vacation home, the White House said.

AP quoted the White House and the Secret Service that this matter led to the evacuation of the president and the first lady for a short period.

The White House mentioned there was no threat to Biden or his family and that precautionary measures were taken, adding that after the situation was assessed, Biden and his wife, Jill, returned to their Rehoboth Beach home.
