According to journalists, Japan dominates the G7 this year, and therefore wants to make the war in Ukraine the main topic during the Hiroshima summit in May.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida may visit Kyiv around mid-February. He plans to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, as well as visit places where military operations were previously fought. The Japanese edition of Yomiuri writes about this, citing its sources in the government.
It is reported that such a plan is still under consideration by the Japanese government, as officials fear that it may not be safe in Ukraine. The final decision will be made after a full analysis of the military situation. It is assumed that Kisida will arrive in Ukraine by land through Poland.
The material says that Japan, as the country that dominates the G7 this year, wants to show that it intends to continue to support Ukraine. Moreover, Kisida and Zelensky should issue a joint statement condemning Russian military aggression.
According to Reuters, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan did not immediately comment on the information about the upcoming train of the head of government to Ukraine.
Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara said that nothing has been decided at this stage.
The publication writes that it is expected at the G7 summit, which will be held in May in Hiroshima , the issue of the Russian-Ukrainian war will become the main topic. Kishida is also going to show the importance of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world, referring to Russia's constant threats to use them.
