Suga to Leave for G-7 Summit Thursday

   Tokyo, June 8 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga will visit Britain for five days from Thursday to attend a summit of the Group of Seven major industrial nations, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said Tuesday.
   Suga "will proactively contribute to G-7 discussions on such key issues as measures against the novel coronavirus crisis, international health, the global economy, free trade, climate change and regional situations," Kato said.
   The G-7 summit will be held in Cornwall, southwestern Britain, for three days from Friday.
   It will be the first time for Suga to attend a G-7 summit since he took office in September 2020.
   At the summit meeting, he is expected to show his government's resolve to hold the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics this summer after a one-year delay caused by the pandemic.
