    PM Modi at G7 summit Live Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday arrived in Hiroshima after departing from New Delhi to attend the annual G7 summit to be held between May 19 and 21. This is the first visit to the Japanese city by an Indian Prime Minister since India conducted nuclear tests in Pokhran in 1974. The last Indian PM to visit Hiroshima, which suffered the atomic bomb attack in 1945, was Jawaharlal Nehru in 1957.

    Modi’s presence at Hiroshima is significant since India is one of the few countries which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). He will join the G7 leaders when they visit the Peace Memorial Park, dedicated to the victims and survivors of the attack.

    In an interview with The Indian Express, Japan’s ambassador to India, Hiroshi F Suzuki, said Japanese PM Fumio Kishida wants Modi to explain to G7 leaders, at the meeting in Hiroshima, what he — as the “voice of the Global South” — intends to put on the agenda for the G20 summit regarding global challenges including food security.
