G7 Leaders Convene in Italy Amid Global Turmoil and Key Discussions

G7 leaders are gathering in southern Italy’s Borgo Egnazia resort from June 13-15, with the summit’s agenda heavily focused on supporting Ukraine amidst its ongoing conflict with Russia. U.S. President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, among others, will discuss leveraging frozen Russian assets to fund Ukraine’s war effort.

Additionally, the summit will address the Hamas-Israel conflict, migration issues, and tensions in the Indo-Pacific region. Non-G7 leaders from countries like India, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are invited for discussions on broader global challenges. This summit occurs at a critical time as several G7 leaders face domestic political pressures and upcoming elections.
