The G7 Foreign Ministers, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the High Representative of the European Union, have pledged their commitment to upholding the international order based on the rule of law in their first meeting under the Japanese presidency in 2023.
Nearly a year after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the G7 members reaffirmed their unwavering solidarity with Ukraine and condemned in the strongest possible terms the Russian government’s unprovoked and brutal war of aggression against Ukraine.
They urged Russia to immediately and unconditionally withdraw all forces and equipment from Ukraine and respect Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. The G7 members condemned Russia’s continued attacks on Ukrainian civilians and critical infrastructure, emphasizing that there must be no impunity for war crimes and other atrocities.
The G7 members remained committed to maintaining and intensifying sanctions on Russia to constrain its war effort and on those states providing material support for Russia’s war against Ukraine. They called on third parties to cease assistance to the Russian military and its affiliated forces, or face severe costs. The G7 members also reaffirmed their commitment to providing military and defense assistance to Ukraine to exercise its right to defend itself against Russia’s invasion.
The G7 members underscored their commitment to defending the core principle of the United Nations Charter against Russia’s aggression, not only for the benefit of Ukraine but for the entire international community. The G7 foreign ministers stated that they “remain steadfast” in cooperating with partners to ensure peace, security, and prosperity for the world.
