G7 Will Not Consider Further Russia Sanctions

Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump's nominee to be the top US diplomat, has not yet been confirmed in his post so the United States will be represented in Toronto by acting Secretary of State John Sullivan.

The official said there remains an openness to talk to Russian Federation over various important issues.

She said the meeting of female foreign ministers will be held for 2 days starting on September 21st in Canada.

No date has been set, and there is uncertainty about what Trump might be able to accomplish.

"President Trump is really carrying the water on the North Korea issue". She has singled out Russian President Vladimir Putin as a major disrupter in current affairs.

Trump has nominated his CIA Director Mike Pompeo as his next secretary of state, but Pompeo isn't in Toronto because he continues to face opposition to his confirmation.

"They are I think interested in a unified approach on how we express our profound concern and our disagreement and how we will work together to address them", said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The meeting came as U.S. President Donald Trump tempered optimism on the situation in North Korea, saying on Twitter that "only time will tell".

Canada will host the world's small but growing band of female foreign ministers for talks ahead of this year's UN General Assembly, Canada's Chrystia Freeland announced Sunday. Foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations began their two-day meeting here on Sunday.

Freeland invited about a half-dozen non-G7 foreign ministers also attending the summit to a separate Saturday night dinner.

Freeland also wants the disruptive influence of Russian Federation and the West to be a top agenda item, and has asked Ukrainian foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin to join part of today's talks, going so far as to host him - along with other ministers - at her home for brunch.

Freeland joked that she and the other ministers are often the only women in meetings, and that Kono had the chance to see a little bit of what it was like.

Canada and Japan signed a military co-operation agreement on Saturday that will allow each other's militaries to share equipment during joint exercises.

Instead, the group - made up of the U.S., Canada, Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Japan - will focus on ways to keep pressure on Moscow, as well as Iran's activities in the Middle East and North Korea's nuclear program, Reuters reported on Sunday.

The foreign ministers' talks, due to end late on Monday, will help prepare for a G7 leaders' summit in Canada in early June.
