The U.S. and other Group of Seven countries issued a joint statement calling on “Tehran to cease and reverse nuclear escalations, and stop the continuing uranium enrichment activities that have no credible civilian justifications”. They further urged “Iran to stop assisting Russia’s war in Ukraine and not to transfer ballistic missiles and related technology, as this would represent a substantive material escalation and a direct threat to European security. We are prepared to respond in a swift and coordinated manner, including with new and significant measures”. The G7 also expressed readiness “to adopt further sanctions or take other measures in response to further destabilising initiatives”.
