Finance minister of japan

G7 financial leaders will gather on Thursday to debate ways to put pressure on Russia to end the Ukraine conflict, according to Japan's Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki.

Japan will preside over a gathering of G7 finance ministers and central bank directors in Bengaluru, India. The meeting will occur almost a year since Russia attacked Ukraine, labelling it a "special military operation".

Despite a slew of punitive measures implemented by the G7 and other nations against Russia, the conflict continues.

"The primary subjects of debate will be support for Ukraine and sanctions against Russia," Suzuki said at a press conference. "We will continue to work closely with the G7 and the international community to strengthen the impact of sanctions in order to accomplish the ultimate objective of compelling Russia to withdraw."

This year, Japan will host G7 cabinet talks in the run-up to the G7 leaders' summit in Hiroshima, Japan, on May 19-21. Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States constitute the G7.
