LONDON, May 25 (Reuters) - Britain has no plans at the moment to invite other "national participants" to the G7 summit later this month, a government spokeswoman said on Tuesday, when asked about a French proposal to invite the Belarusian opposition.

"There are no current plans to invite further national participants to the G7 Summit," the spokeswoman said.

"At the Summit, G7 leaders will discuss current global issues including Belarus' reckless and dangerous behaviour and the UK is actively considering and coordinating with our allies on further sanctions for those responsible." (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by William James)
