HIROSHIMA, May 20 (AFP) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will travel to Hiroshima to attend the Group of Seven (G7) summit on Sunday, Japan's foreign ministry announced on Saturday (May 20).

He will also hold a bilateral meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida during his stay.

Zelenskyy is expected to arrive in Hiroshima, the site of the world's first atomic attack in western Japan, later on Saturday.

He was originally scheduled to join a G7 session online on Friday, but that plan changed after Zelenskyy expressed a “strong wish” to participate in person, the Japanese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
