Foreign ministers of the G7 nations “remain committed to intensifying, fully coordinating and enforcing sanctions against Russia,” as well as providing support for Ukraine, according to Japan’s foreign ministry.

G7 foreign ministers gathered Monday in the Japanese town of Karuizawa for three days of meetings ahead of next month’s summit in Hiroshima.

The group of ministers underscored that Russia “must withdraw all forces and equipment from Ukraine immediately and unconditionally,” according to a statement published Monday.

It also condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin’s announcement to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, calling Russia’s “irresponsible” nuclear rhetoric “unacceptable.”
