Kishida announces plan to host G7 summit in Hiroshima on May 19-21 next year 

All national dailies wrote that Prime Minister Kishida said at a news conference on Tuesday in Elmau, Germany, that Japan will host the G7 summit in Hiroshima on May 19-21 next year. “I would like to express a strong commitment from Hiroshima to never repeat the horrors of nuclear weapons,” Kishida said. Sankei wrote that although Kishida has had the idea of hosting the G7 summit in Hiroshima, his own constituency, ever since he served as foreign minister in the Abe administration, he was originally hesitant to realize the idea out of concern that the move could be viewed as politically motivated and selfish. However, President Putin’s hinting at the possibility of using nuclear arms in the war in Ukraine led him to decide to host the G7 summit in Hiroshima.
