Sunak at the G7 summit intends to advocate for increased support for Kyiv

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak intends to advocate for strengthening support for Ukraine at the G7 summit, which will be held in Hiroshima from 19 to 21 May. This is stated in a message released on Saturday evening by the office of the head of government.

“At the G7 summit, the UK will mobilize international efforts against the economic coercion practiced by hostile states, and will also strengthen support for Ukraine, which is preparing to intensify hostilities against Russia,” — noted in the document.

While in Japan, Sunak will also hold several bilateral meetings and will have to announce a new joint British-Japanese defense cooperation project.

Next week, the British Prime Minister will also attend the Council of Europe summit in Iceland, where, as stated, “attention will be focused on the threat posed by Russia, as well as on the collective effort to combat illegal migration.” The summit will take place on May 16 in Reykjavik.

“Many of the issues we are trying to tackle, from inflation to migration, need to be addressed in close collaboration with our international partners. This year’s G7 Summit is taking place at a watershed moment when Ukraine is focusing all its efforts on the fight for survival, and we are forced to deal with complex threats to global peace and prosperity,” the statement says.
