The Group of Seven (G-7) Summit in Hiroshima, Japan ended on Sunday. The final negotiations focused on the Russia-Ukraine war.
The participants expressed "unwavering support" to Kyiv, Japan's Kyodo news agency reported, citing a statement issued at the end of the summit.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, at a press conference at the end of the three-day huddle, further shared the "idealistic" aim to achieve a nuclear-free world free from threats, Anadolu reported.
Kishida said the leaders agreed to further tighten economic sanctions on Russia to "undermine the country's capacity to continue its aggression."
Kishida said the group was ready to forge "constructive and stable" ties with China, which has stepped up efforts in recent years to increase its military power in the region.
He urged Beijing to "act responsibly" in the international community, without elaborating further.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also attended the summit on Saturday. Zelenskyy arrived in Japan on a French government plane.
Zelenskyy's stop on his fundraising visits was Japan this time. He had the opportunity to hold bilateral meetings with the leaders of the G7 Summit.
The Japanese prime minister said that Zelenskyy's personal participation was useful to send "a strong message".
Later in the day, Zelenskyy, who is visiting Japan for the first time during the 15-month war, is expected to deliver a speech in Hiroshima, which was devastated by the US atomic bomb in 1945.
On Saturday, Zelenskyy received pledges of military and humanitarian support from the G-7 leaders against Russia's "illegal" aggression.
One of the pledges came from the United States. US President Joe Biden promised to train Ukrainian pilots for the F-16s to be provided to Ukraine.
During the summit, Zelenskyy held meetings with the leaders of Italy, the UK, Germany, India, France, Japan and the US.
Underscoring the importance of collaborative efforts to address the risk of scarcity and the worsening global food security crisis, the summit called on parties to ensure the maximum potential and smooth operation of the Black Sea Grain Initiative.
The "Hiroshima Declaration for Resilient Global Food Security" issued at the Summit emphasized the importance of G-7 leaders working together to address the world's risk of scarcity and the worsening global food security crisis.
The declaration noted that COVID-19, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and volatile energy and fertilizer prices threaten global food security, and it highlighted that nearly 828 million people worldwide faced hunger in 2021.
It emphasized the need for access to affordable, safe, and nutritious food as a fundamental requirement, highlighting the importance of increasing predictability in markets and establishing sustainable systems.
"Our common goal is to build a better future for each individual, including resilient global food security and nourishment for all," it maintained.
