WASHINGTON -- The Group of Seven summit in Hiroshima this month presents a rare opportunity for advanced economies to focus on the unique challenges facing the Indo-Pacific, said U.S. President Joe Biden's former National Security Council director for East Asia.

Christopher Johnstone, who is now senior adviser and Japan chair at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, highlighted in a recent interview the group's renewed importance in leading the global response against Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
