Canada to host the world's female foreign ministers

"But it is also possible to interpret as a rejection of the open door", - said the attitude to Russian Federation of the countries-participants of the source Agency.

"He's strong and smart. When you are weak, he uses it".

Lavrov's remarks came at a meeting with Wang Yi on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization's foreign ministers summit in the Chinese capital Beijing.

The G-7 ministers affirmed that a political solution would be the only way to address the Syria crisis, according to Kono, given that the US -led airstrikes on the Middle Eastern country earlier this month had further damaged strained relations between the West and Russian Federation, which backs Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.

The agreement offered Tehran relief from sanctions in exchange for curbing its nuclear programme.

The deal was struck in 2015 between Iran and six major powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States under the administration of Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.

Mr. Sullivan led the U.S. delegation to the G7 meeting, as U.S. President Donald Trump's pick to become the next secretary of state, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, is in the midst of confirmation hearings for his new appointment.

But US officials are also concerned about the so-called "sunset clauses" in the original accord, which would allow Iran to progressively resume uranium enrichment from 2025, and Trump wants the deal itself updated.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, speaking to reporters on the margins of the meeting, said G7 ministers had agreed on the need to be vigilant about Russian Federation.

Mogherini explicitly linked the planned meeting to the subsequent United Nations event and added: "We believe that is going to be a very important way to open the doorway for understanding".

The Europeans are willing to work on a supplement to the deal which would not abrogate it, and would toughen controls on Iran's missile program but "not give Iran a pretext to pull out, which would have disastrous consequences".

Last month, in one of the most surprising twists in world affairs for decades, Trump accepted an invitation from Pyongyang's autocrat to a summit to discuss to discuss his nuclear disarmament.

The G7 meeting is the first high-level gathering of the allies since the United States, France and Britain launched 105 missiles targeting chemical weapons facilities in Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack on April 7.

After the foreign affairs meeting, the ministers will be joined on Monday by their domestic security counterparts and discussions will be widened to encompass counterterrorism and cyber security.
