President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Japan to personally participate in the G7 Summit in Hiroshima.
“Japan. G7. Important meetings with partners and friends of Ukraine. Security and strengthening cooperation for our victory. Today, peace will become closer,” the President of Ukraine posted on his Telegram channel.
It is noted that Zelensky will participate as a guest in a peace and stability session involving G7 leaders and invited non-member states. He also plans to hold talks with world leaders, including Prime Minister of Japan Fumio Kishida, who is presiding over the summit.
The day before, U.S. President Joe Biden told G7 leaders that the United States would support efforts to train Ukrainian pilots on modern aircraft, including F-16 fighters.
U.S. President National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed that Washington would support a joint effort to train Ukrainian pilots on fourth-generation fighter aircraft, including F-16s.
The representative of the White House relayed that in recent months the US and its allies and partners have focused on providing Ukraine with the systems, weapons, and training it needs to conduct effective offensive operations this spring and summer. He added that in the following months, Ukraine’s allies will discuss when and how many modern fighter jets will be delivered to Kyiv.
