“As a result of our intensive consultations, my visit to Japan, where then a meeting of the G7 countries was being prepared, intensive talks with our partners in the Group of Seven, all this led to the following: this week the Group of Seven in Tokyo took a decision not just to extend sanctions against Russia, but to strengthen these sanctions against Russia in case of aggravation or when needed.
