Japan’s Kishida Will Lead G-7 in Pushing for Protection of Journalists

From a Wall Street Journal story by Peter Landers headlined “Japan’s Kishida Says He’ll Lead G-7 in Pushing for Protection of Journalists”:

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said he would lead the Group of Seven nations in advocating for greater protection for journalists and the release of Russian political prisoners after Moscow detained Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich.

Japan holds the presidency of the G-7 this year and Mr. Kishida will host a summit of leaders including President Biden in Hiroshima from May 19 to May 21.
