US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken noted that the consequences of the Russian operation in Ukraine will be discussed at the G7 summit. The speech will also touch upon the possibility of a diplomatic solution to the conflict. Blinken’s statement on this matter was made after a meeting with German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock.
“The consequences of the ‘Russian aggression’ against Ukraine will be discussed in the coming days, in particular the question of whether it is possible to find a diplomatic solution, as well as preparing for a situation if there is no such possibility,” Anthony Blinken said. His words reports RIA Novosti on Friday, June 24th.
The G7 summit will take place on June 26-28 under the German presidency at Elmau Castle in Bavaria. The invited participants of the summit will be the leaders of Argentina, Senegal, Indonesia, South Africa and India. It is planned that the Ukrainian president will take part in the meeting via video link.
Previously, Blinken called Russia to complete the operation to demilitarize Ukraine and resolve the situation as soon as possible. According to him, the US and its Western partners do not want the conflict to continue. The G7 has repeatedly stressed its commitment to coordinating efforts to strengthen pressure on the Russian Federation in the light of the situation in Ukraine.
