Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is scheduled to travel to Hiroshima, Japan, to attend the three-day summit of the Group of Seven, seven rich democracies and the European Union. This was reported by the American news agency Bloomberg and the British newspaper financial times. zToday a special session on Ukraine was scheduled for Zelensky’s visit. It was initially announced that the Ukrainian president would address international leaders via video link.
The G7 consists of the United States, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and Canada. In addition, leaders from countries such as India, Brazil, Indonesia, South Korea, Australia and Vietnam were invited. This is seen as an attempt to bring the reluctant countries more in line with the G7 on sensitive issues such as the war in Ukraine.
The summit is expected to be dominated by discussions about two countries that were not invited: Russia and China. Beijing has strained relations with the United States and other G7 members, but is also an important trading partner for the group’s countries. Consultation on a common approach is expected.
Japan takes unprecedented security measures around the G7 meeting. Some 24,000 security forces will monitor the safety of high-profile participants such as US President Joe Biden, his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Leaders of the G7 member countries and other invited countries are also likely to visit the Peace Park in Hiroshima; The first city to be bombed with nuclear weapons. The leaders of Japan and South Korea go together to a memorial to the Koreans who died in the US nuclear attack during World War II. (Editor / ANP)
