G7 Leaders’ Summit 2023 kicks off in Japan

In Japan, eyes were turned to the 3-day G7 Summit in Hiroshima, in the southwestern part of the country.

The leaders of the USA, France, England, Germany, Canada and Italy are attending the summit hosted by Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio.

G7 countries as well as the European Union (EU), Indonesia, India, South Korea, Australia and Vietnam are invited to the summit, which will last until May 21.

The host Japanese Prime Minister and his wife Kishida Yuko welcomed the visiting heads of state and government in front of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

The museum, which exhibits more than 100 thousand artifacts and relics from the period of the atomic bomb dropped in 1945, was the scene of the first collective visit of the G7 leaders.

Accompanied by the Kishida couple, guest leaders and their spouses, including US President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, toured the historical museum and campus.

After the visit, the leaders walked to the mausoleum built for the victims of the atomic bomb on the campus and laid flower wreaths.

Biden became the second incumbent US President to arrive in Hiroshima after the 1945 atomic bombing. Barack Obama visited Hiroshima in 2016.

Considered as one of the important international platforms in solving global political and economic problems, the G7 Leaders’ Summit will be held at the Grand Prince Hiroshima Hotel.

With the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 and on Nagasaki on 9 August 1945, the USA caused the death of nearly 210,000 people.
