Watch: Joe Biden meets Fumio Kishida for G7 talks in Japan

Joe Biden met with Fumio Kishida on Thursday, 18 May, after travelling to Japan for this week’s G7Hiroshima leaders’ summit.

Heads of the world’s advanced democracies are coming together for three days from Friday in the western Japanese city for talks on international issues.

Leaders are expected to discuss concern about China’s use of “economic coercion” in its dealings abroad as part of a joint statement.

G7 countries attending the summit - the UK, Japan, Germany, the US, France, Canada, and Italy - are closely tied with China economically.

The summit is also expected to focus on Russia as Vladimir Putin continues his invasion of Ukraine.

Mr Biden is expected to have a sideline meeting with Quad nations - Australia, the United States, India and Japan - after postponing his post-G7 trip to Sydney because of debt ceiling negotiations in Washington.
