India has been invited as a 'guest country' to this year's G-7 Leaders' Summit in Hiroshima, Japan. PM Modi will participate in three sessions, where discussions will center on food, health, climate, energy, and global peace and stability.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that he will exchange views with the heads of G7 states and other partners invited to the G7 Summit in Japan on the need to collectively address challenges facing the world.
He made the statement while leaving for Japan to attend the G-7 Leaders' Summit.

"My presence at the G7 summit is especially important as India is chairing the G20 this year. I look forward to exchanging views with the G7 countries and other invited parties on the challenges the world is facing and the need to address them collectively," read a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office.

The G7 Summit is scheduled to be held in Hiroshima, Japan from May 19-21. The G-7 club of rich democracies comprises Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
