Britain and the United States have again warned Russia ahead of the G7 summit

In addition, British Foreign Secretary Lis Truss and his US envoy Anthony Blinken pledged their support for Ukraine during joint talks ahead of the official opening of the G7 summit, a British diplomatic spokesman said on Saturday. The main topic of the meeting in Liverpool is the gathering of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border, but the ministers will also discuss China, Iran’s nuclear program and the military government in Myanmar.

Ministers of ASEAN member states will be included for the first time

“We must unite against the aggressors who are trying to control freedom and democracy.” Truss said at the beginning of the talks. “To achieve this, we must speak with one voice. We must expand our economic and security position around the world.” She added. On Sunday, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will join the G7 countries for the first time to discuss anti-cancer vaccines, financial issues and gender equality.

Britain has invited representatives from South Korea, Australia, South Africa and India to the summit, many of whom will attend via video link, the AFP reported. The United States has been accusing Russia of mobilizing troops near the Ukrainian border for weeks. In the West, therefore, there are strong fears of a possible Russian invasion. Russia has denied the allegations, accusing Ukraine of relocating more than 120,000 troops to the eastern Ukrainian Donbass region, where pro-Russian separatists have been fighting for control since 2014.
