The Indian delegation to the G7 summit, led by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, has gone into self-isolation after two of its members reportedly tested positive for Covid-19.

Confirming the news on Twitter, the EAM said that he will conduct his further engagements through virtual mode.

“Was made aware yesterday evening of exposure to possible Covid positive cases. As a measure of abundant caution and also out of consideration for others, I decided to conduct my engagements in the virtual mode. That will be the case with the G7 Meeting today as well,” he said.

According to reports, two members of the delegation tested positive on Tuesday with further test results still awaited.

Jaishankar had arrived in London on Monday for a four-day visit at the invitation of UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to join the G7 Foreign and Development Ministers Meeting as one of the guest ministers.

The ongoing G7 summit is the first time that the foreign ministers of various countries are meeting face-to-face in almost two years. India is not a G7 member but was invited by the United Kingdom to this week’s summit, along with Australia, South Africa and South Korea.
