Canada to host meeting of female foreign ministers


The United States said its priorities also included Iran's " malign" regional activities and ending North Korea's nuclear programmes.

"The day we will finish this war against ISIS, if we leave, definitely and totally, even from a political point of view, we will leave the floor to the Iranian regime, Bashar al-Assad and his guys, and they will prepare the new war", he said on "Fox News Sunday", using an alternative acronym for the Islamic State militant group.

The Western countries blame Assad for the attack that killed dozens of people.

On Sunday, Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland will host all of her G7 colleagues plus the European Union's representative at a working lunch to discuss the crisis in Russian Federation and Ukraine.

The envoys will also be keen to glean clues from their USA colleague about whether President Donald Trump plans to tear up the Iran nuclear deal and how he will handle a planned summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

China fully supports Russia's efforts to return the Syrian settlement process within the framework of UN Security Council resolution 2254, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday. The Syrian government and its Russian ally deny involvement or using poison gas on April 7.

Last week the group condemned what it said was a Russian nerve agent attack in Britain.

The ministers will not discuss further punitive measures because Britain, France, Germany and Italy are members of the 28-nation European Union, which must agree collectively on what steps to take, said two diplomats briefed on the meeting. A senior official from one G7 nation said ministers were deeply anxious about what the group saw as a pattern of Russian Federation misbehaviour going back years. Neither official spoke to reporters as the talks began. President Trump has threatened to walk away from the Iran nuclear agreement on May 12 if his objections are not addressed, including "sunset" clauses in the deal that phase out restrictions on Iran over time. The multilateral agreement envisages gradual lifting of the western anti-Iran sanctions in exchange for Tehran abandoning its nuclear weapons program. It has said it will stick to the accord as long as the other signatories respect it but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out.

Before Sullivan and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson held a closed-door meeting, Johnson was overheard saying, "One of the things we are concerned about now is the JCPOA and where that is headed".

Trump's envoy to Canada, Ambassador Kelly Craft, says her boss is leading worldwide efforts to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons arsenal.

The gathering comes days after North Korea pledged to suspend testing of its nuclear and long-range missiles and close its nuclear test site, and days ahead of this week's historic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
