Ukraine, China, and nuclear war: This year’s G7 summit
The G7 meets this year in Hiroshima to discuss Ukraine, China security concerns, and Russia’s nuclear power.
Leaders from seven of the world’s industrial powers – the Group of Seven (G7) – are meeting in Hiroshima, Japan. It’s a sobering stage – 77 years ago, the United States dropped the first of two atomic bombs on Hiroshima, and today, the threat of nuclear war is at its highest in years. This year’s G7 agenda will be focused on continued financial support for Ukraine and creating a joint message against its invader, Russia. But will there be time or money at the summit in Hiroshima to get the world closer to peace?
