G7 ministers speak about holding Russia accountable for aggression in Ukraine

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo says that G7 foreign ministers at a meeting on March 25 spoke a lot about Russia and holding it accountable for its aggression in Ukraine.

"The group also spoke a great deal about Russia and holding it accountable for its aggression in Ukraine. Real progress on eastern Ukraine must begin with Russia honoring its commitments under the Minsk agreements," Pompeo told reporters, according to the U.S. Department of State.

Pompeo also noted that the United States will never recognize Russia's territorial claims on Crimea. “I also reiterated the simple truth:  Crimea is Ukraine.  The United States will never recognize Russia’s attempted annexation,” he added.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States decided to host the G7 ministerial virtually by video teleconference instead of gathering in Pittsburgh, March 24-25.

“Virtual G7 Ministerial wasn’t the format we’d envisioned for the meeting when we drew it up, but I’m glad we had the chance to meet, if only by teleconference,” Pompeo said.

The meeting was mainly dedicated to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
