G7 Foreign Ministers’ Meet Held In Hiroshima


The G7 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting is one of the ministerial meetings that held in advance of the G7 Summit in Hiroshima on 10th & 11th April, 2016. It is the first of ten related ministerial meetings held leading up to the Ise-Shima Summit. The Ise-Shima Summit will be held on May 26 and 27, 2016 in Ise City, Mie Prefecture. Outcome of this G7 FM’s meeting will be the base for the discussion for G7 summit.

The G7 Fm’s meet is a meeting attended by the leaders of the seven countries of Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Canada, along with the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission

At the Summit, leaders discuss issues of a global magnitude that face international society and with a call to end nuclear weapons. Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, who has attended the two day annual meeting said that ministers has discussed anti-terrorism steps, maritime security and issues related to North Korea, Ukraine and the Middle East.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has also joined with his counterparts from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan on Monday. He has also visited an atomic bomb museum and lay flowers at a cenotaph for nuclear bomb victims, becoming the first in his post to do so. The move could possibly pave the way for a never-before visit to Hiroshima by a U.S. President when Barack Obama attends the annual meeting of G7 leaders in Japan next month

During World War II, a U.S. warplane dropped a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, reducing the city to ashes and killing 140,000 people by the end of that year.Three days later, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki. Japan surrendered six days later.

So lets discuss some questions related to this article:
1. The G7 Foreign Minister meets has held at which place ?
2. The annual meeting of G7 will be held in which country ?
3. Name all the countries of G7 ?
