G7 Will Not Consider Any More Sanctions on Russian Federation

Париж обвинил Москву в попытках запутать расследование химатаки в Сирии

U.S. President Donald Trump has called the 2015 Iran pact one of the worst agreements ever negotiated and will decide by May 12 whether to restore U.S. economic sanctions on Tehran, which would be a severe blow to the pact.

The G7, comprised of representatives from the US, Canada, Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Japan, will instead look for ways to keep pressure on Russian Federation, as well as Iran and NKorea, over their nuclear weapons programs. "And we are now about to dive into conversations about Syria, North Korea, Myanmar, Venezuela, among other issues".

"We fully agreed that we will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea", Kono said on the first day of a two-day meeting in Toronto, Canada, suggesting Pyongyang's announcement that it will suspend nuclear tests and long-range missile launches was insufficient to meet the demands of the worldwide community.

She got the word and that is off the table.

With Trump threatening to withdraw the United States if an agreement to revamp the deal can not be reached before the May 12 deadline set by the USA leader, Kono said "many ministers" sought "continuous and complete implementation" of the deal.

The G7 meeting is the first high-level gathering of the allies since the United States, France and Britain launched 105 missiles targeting chemical weapons facilities in Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack on April 7.

Nevertheless, the official said there remains an openness to talk to Russian Federation over various important issues while still holding Moscow accountable for its destabilizing efforts around the globe.

Freeland invited Klimkin to be part of Sunday's talks, hosting him and other ministers at her home for a traditional brunch that was prepared by her own children.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada and the European Union will host the world's first female foreign ministers' meeting in September. Freeland, who speaks Ukrainian, is an avowed critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The foreign ministers' talks, due to end late on Monday, will help prepare for a G7 leaders' summit in Canada in early June. Foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations began their two-day meeting here on Sunday.
