The Group of Seven (G7) traditional industrialized countries on Saturday expressed its strong unity against Russia, in case the latter attacks Ukraine, noting that Moscow will pay a heavy price, a US official noted on Saturday night.

Discussions at the G7 foreign ministers’ meeting in Liverpool, England, are on the same wavelength as US President Joe Biden’s line against the threat of a Russian invasion. Although the US government has not made public what measures it will take against Moscow in the event of a military strike on Ukraine, they will be implemented very quickly if necessary, according to a State Department official, as reported by Bloomberg.

The deployment of a Russian army near the border with Ukraine has raised the issue of a possible conflict at the top of the G7 agenda.

The G7 ministers also discussed China’s challenge to Western democracies, particularly in Beijing’s trade practices in Europe.

UK Foreign Secretary Liz Trass described the meeting and debate as a demonstration of the power of democracies “against the aggressors who aim to undermine freedom”.

Iran has also been at the center of the talks, with the Biden administration noting that the time for the US to return to the Tehran nuclear deal is “running out”. The US Secretary of State had “productive” meetings on the issue with his German, French and British counterparts, according to a State Department official.

German Foreign Minister Analena Berbock, however, told reporters that there had been no progress so far in the nuclear negotiations.
