There is a program to come here for talks. Leaders of the world’s most powerful democracies have invited Zelensky to attend the session amid efforts by G7 nations to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine and toughen sanctions against it. Japan’s foreign ministry issued a statement saying that Zelensky was earlier scheduled to attend the session online on Friday, but changed plans after he expressed a “strong desire” to attend the conference in person. .
