Stressing that he will attend the G-7 summit today, the Ukrainian President said he will also hold a number of bilateral meetings.

“Today is the G7 summit in Italy, this is a meeting of our closest partners. Much of it will be devoted to Ukraine, our defense and economic resilience. And we are waiting for important decisions today,” President Zelenskyy said in a post on X.

“The main issues for us are the development of a fighter jet alliance, accelerating pilot training and speeding up aircraft deliveries. Development of the Ukrainian air defense system based on the most powerful Western systems, as well as enhancing long-range capabilities. Approving the format of using Russian assets to benefit Ukraine, especially in the development of our defense industry and combined arms production,” he said.

The Ukrainian President said he would also meet other world leaders and the IMF Managing Director.

“Today, I will attend the G7 meeting and hold a number of bilateral meetings. I will meet the summit host, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, as well as Canadian and UK Prime Ministers Justin Trudeau and Rishi Sunak, European Council President Charles Michel, and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva,” Zelenskyy said.

In addition, he stressed that bilateral security agreements would also be signed during meetings with US President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

“This document with the United States will be unprecedented, as it should be for leaders supporting Ukraine,” the Ukrainian president said.

Zelenskyy further noted that a year ago, the G-7 adopted a declaration of support for Ukraine at the NATO summit in Vilnius.

The Ukrainian President said that today they will sign the last two security agreements with the G-7 members.

“Today, as part of this declaration, we are signing the last two security agreements with G7 members. The entire Ukrainian people, including our warriors, see that the G7 will always support Ukraine,” he said. “I am grateful to our partners for their trust and our victory,” he added.

Earlier today, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni welcomed UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among other global leaders, for the 50th summit of the Group of Seven (G7) to be held on June 13 and 14.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will leave for Italy today to attend the Group of Seven (G7) summit, which will be his first foreign visit after assuming office for the third consecutive term.

The summit will be held between June 13 and 14 in the Apulia region, where India has been invited as an outreach country to the summit, which will be attended by seven member states, the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and France, as well as the European Union.

On January 1, Italy assumed the presidency of the G-7 for the seventh time. It is noteworthy that the G-7 countries include the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain.
