G7 leaders visit Japanese holy shrine ahead of summit

Baku, May 26, AZERTAC

World leaders have been welcomed by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the Shinto religion’s holiest site ahead of a G7 summit, according to Euronews.

The G7 partners are made up of the US, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, although Commission President Jean Claude Junker is also there representing the European Union.

He’s due to call for solidarity on the migration issue and recognition that it is a global problem in need of funding from leading industrialised nations.

Other topics on the agenda range from the health of the world’s economy to China’s maritime assertiveness.

The venue of the Ise Grand Shrine was chosen by Abe in the hope of providing an insight into the heart of Japanese culture.
