G7 urges China not to undermine sanctions imposed on Russia
The group of seven industrialized nations, representing the world’s richest nations, on Saturday urged China not to undermine the sanctions imposed on Russia for its attack on Ukraine and also not to justify Moscow’s action in Kyiv, G7 said in a statement.
The group called China and urged, ” not to assist Russia in its war of aggression against Ukraine, not to undermine sanctions imposed on Russia for its attack against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, not to justify Russian action in Ukraine, and to desist from engaging in information manipulation, disinformation and other means to legitimize Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine,” CNN reported citing the statement issued by G7.
The foreign ministers of the G7 also said that they will never recognize the borders that Russia has attempted to change by their military aggression and added that the group has also rejected any notion of spheres of influence and use of the force that is not in compliance with international law, according to the separate joint statement issued by G7.
“We will never recognize borders Russia has attempted to change by military aggression,” the statement read, adding that the G7 rejected “any notion of spheres of influence and any use of force that is not in compliance with international law.”
These developments came after holding the talks in Germany where the group of foreign ministers collectively expressed their “solidarity with and support for Ukraine as it defends itself against Russia’s unjustifiable, unprovoked and illegal war of aggression.”
