May 19, 2023

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy may attend the G7 summit in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. This was reported by Kyodo news agency regarding Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Ihor Zhovkva.

According to him, President Zelensky "will take part in the G7 summit in Hiroshima, which opens on May 19, although I do not know the format."

Zhovkva added that the final decision on the possibility of a visit to Japan will be made depending on the military situation.

The Japanese side plans to put Ukraine, China, North Korea, and nuclear disarmament at the top of the agenda.

A week ago, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said he wanted to use the meeting as an opportunity to reaffirm the G7 countries' unwavering solidarity with Ukraine in its opposition to Russia's invasion.

Kishida also said that the G7 leaders would discuss challenges in the Indo-Pacific region, the recovery of the global economy and finance after the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, and digitalization, including artificial intelligence.
