India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 19 May 2023, 06:24 pm

New Delhi/Hiroshima: Indian PM Narendra Modi on Friday arrived in Japan's Hiroshima city where he will attend the G-7 Summit.

After reaching Japan, Modi tweeted: "Landed in Hiroshima to join the G7 Summit proceedings. Will also be having bilateral meetings with various world leaders."

He is visiting the nation at the invitation of Japanese PM Kishida Fumio.

"During the Summit, Prime Minister will speak at G-7 sessions with partner countries, on subjects such as peace, stability & prosperity of a sustainable planet; food, fertiliser and energy security; health; gender equality; climate change and environment; resilient infrastructure; and development cooperation," read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.

A Quad Summit is also likely to be held in Hiroshima on the sidelines of the G7.

Apart from Japan, Modi will also visit Papua New Guinea and Australia.

In a departure statement, the PM said it will be a pleasure to meet Japanese PM Fumio Kishida again after the latter's recent visit to India for the India–Japan Summit.

“My presence in this G7 Summit is particularly meaningful as India holds the G20 Presidency this year. I look forward to exchanging views with the G7 countries and other invited partners on challenges that the world faces and the need to collectively address them. I would also be holding bilateral meetings with some of the leaders attending the Hiroshima G7 Summit.”

“From Japan, I will be visiting Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. This will be my first visit, as also the first ever visit by any Indian Prime Minister, to Papua New Guinea. I will host on May 22 the 3rd Summit of the Forum for India–Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC III Summit) jointly with H.E. Mr. James Marape, Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea.

"I am grateful that all 14 Pacific Island Countries (PIC) have accepted the invitation to attend this important Summit. FIPIC had been launched during my visit to Fiji in 2014, and I look forward to engaging with the PIC Leaders on issues that bring us together, such as climate change and sustainable development, capacity building and training, health and well-being, infrastructure and economic development.”

“Apart from the FIPIC engagements, I look forward to my bilateral interactions with Papua New Guinea Governor General Sir Bob Dadae, Prime Minister Marape and some of the other PIC Leaders participating in the Summit.”

“Thereafter, I will be travelling to Sydney, Australia at the invitation of Prime Minister Albanese. I look forward to our bilateral meeting, which will be an opportunity to take stock of our bilateral ties and follow up on our first India-Australia Annual Summit held in New Delhi in March this year. I will also interact with Australian CEOs and business leaders, and meet the Indian community in Sydney at a special event.”
