Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): Simultaneously with the meeting of the leaders of the Group of 7 countries, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, England and the United States, in the city of Hiroshima, Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations, met with the countries of this group and China. He called for "active cooperation and dialogue" on climate change and development.
He added: I believe that it is very important to prevent the division of the world into two parts, and it is also necessary to create bridges for serious negotiations.
In an interview with the Japanese news agency Kyodo, the Secretary General of the United Nations also stated that the leaders of the G7 countries should prevent the world from being divided into Cold War-style blocs.
While Guterres has commented on the issue of "dividing the world" and has repeatedly warned against this issue, the joint statement of the G7 leaders, released on Friday, fuels this issue of "division".
The Group of 7 includes Japan, this year's host of the annual leaders' summit, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada and Italy, as well as the European Union. This statement was published on the second day of the three-day summit. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Hiroshima on Saturday (May 20) to participate in the meetings scheduled for today (Sunday, May 21, 2023).
