Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will visit Ukraine on Tuesday for talks with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, becoming the final leader from a Group of Seven nation to visit the country since Russia’s full-scale invasion about a year ago.

Kishida intends to show his support for Ukraine during the visit, Japan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement. The Japanese premier had been on a trip to India, where he condemned Russia’s invasion in a policy speech and sought to bring Prime Minister Narendra Modi closer to the G-7 nations’ position on the war.
