Italy’s military police were deployed on Thursday on the streets of the resort island of Capri as the Group of Seven foreign ministers meet to discuss the wars in the Middle East and Ukraine.

Police stood in the Italian island’s narrow alleyways and in front of the G7 conference venue but did not stop tourists from walking by or taking selfies.

Under Italy’s stewardship of the rotating presidency, the G7 leaders are expected to issue a united call for Israel to exercise restraint after Iran’s unprecedented weekend attack.

Russia’s two-year war in Ukraine is also high on the agenda, with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg invited to the Capri meeting as guests.
