The G7 express their “full support for Israel and its people” | The truth

The leaders of the G7 countries, meeting by videoconference this Sunday, expressed their “full support for Israel and its people” after the attack by Iran and affirmed their “commitment to their security.” The joint statement signed by the main Western powers – the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Japan – also demanded that Iran cease its attacks, while threatening to “take measures” in the event of “new destabilization initiatives.” .

The G7 leaders also said they would work to try to avoid an “uncontrollable regional escalation” in the Middle East.

Italy, which holds the rotating presidency of the G7, had called the meeting after US President Joe Biden promised a coordinated diplomatic response to the unprecedented drone and missile attack launched overnight by Iran.

“With its actions, Iran has moved further towards destabilizing the region and risks provoking uncontrollable regional escalation. This must be avoided,” said a statement issued by Italy.

Less than an hour

The G7 leaders, who spoke for just under an hour in a video conference, were informed by Biden that the US had warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that it will not participate in a counteroffensive against Iran if Israel decides to retaliate.

The G7 statement also pledged to work “towards an immediate and sustainable ceasefire” in Gaza after more than six months of fighting.

Their G7 foreign ministers are scheduled to meet from Wednesday to Friday on the Italian island of Capri.
