G7 foreign ministers jointly expressed “our support for the fundamental aspiration of the people of Iran for a future where human security and their universal human rights are respected and protected”, going on to condemn the government’s crackdown against protesters and emphasising: “We will continue to use all available diplomatic measures to hold the Iranian authorities to account”. They also “strongly condemn[ed] Iran’s continued destabilising activities in and around the Middle East”, and welcomed “efforts at the UN to hold Russia and Iran accountable for their blatant violations of UNSCR 2231”. The ministers further vowed to “continue working together, and with other international partners, to address Iran’s nuclear escalation and insufficient cooperation with the IAEA… We remain deeply concerned by the unabated expansion of Iran’s nuclear program”.
