Argentine President Javier Milei will travel next week to the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Italy, a spokesman for the libertarian leader told Reuters on Thursday, contradicting reports that he had backed out of the trip.

Milei will return to Argentina after the summit, set to take place from June 13-15, the spokesman said. The president will return to Europe at a later date, he said.

A Milei-backed package of proposed market reforms faces a key vote next week, and opposition lawmakers are pushing to pull some key provisions from the text.
