Naruto tries to convince A to stop the order of execution on Sasuke Uchiha. The Raikage refuses and continues on his way to the Kage Summit. Later, in the Land of Iron, all the five Kage have gathered and commenced their meeting. They begin to discuss the growing issue of Akatsuki and their actions in the past. Mifune then suggests that the five Hidden Villages make the world's first shinobi alliance, and suggesting the leader of which to be Danzō Shimura, the Sixth Hokage Candidate, to all the other Kage's surprise.
