On the fringes of the G7 conference in Hiroshima, Japan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Saturday.
It’s their first face-to-face encounter since Russia invaded Ukraine in February of last year.
During the G-7 Summit in Hiroshima, “PM @narendramodi held talks with President @ZelenskyyUa,” the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted.
The prime minister is currently on a three-nation journey that began on Friday and will also take him to Papua New Guinea and Australia for the annual summit of the G7 grouping.
On May 20, Prime Minister Modi met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Japan for bilateral talks. The two-way conversation occurred during a break at the G7 Summit in Hiroshima.
Since Russia began military actions in Ukraine, this was the first time the two leaders had spoken bilaterally.
The Group of Seven (G7) meeting is being held this week in Hiroshima, and India is one of eight invited guests.
Earlier, on the margins of the G7 Summit, the Ukrainian president met with the British prime minister, Rishi Sunak. Later, while in Japan, Zelenskyy met with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
