Japanese Ambassador: G7 leaders haven’t solved issue of Crimea

Leaders of the G7 countries at the summit, which was held in Japan on May 26-27, condemned Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

Japanese Ambassador to Ukraine Shigeki Sumi said this at a press briefing on Wednesday.

"Participants in the G7 meeting spoke in favor of the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine. They condemned Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Representatives of the Group of Seven do not agree with Russia’s statement that this issue has been supposedly “solved”. This issue is open. Sanctions against Russia may be lifted or eased only when the Russian Federation fulfills all the requirements of the Minsk agreements and return occupied Crimea to Ukraine", he said.
