The G-7, the world's richest seven-nation organization, met on Sunday in Liverpool, United Kingdom. Russia and Iran have been warned in a joint statement issued after this meeting. The G-7 said that Iran is running out of time to make a nuclear deal and if it does not happen, it will have to face dire consequences. Along with this, a warning was also issued to Russia not to follow the plans of attack in Ukraine. Preparing for sanctions on Russia The foreign ministers of the G-7 countries discussed the possibility of Russia attacking Ukraine. US spy agencies estimate that Russia may invade Ukraine with an army of two and a half million at the beginning of next year.

Russia has been denying these allegations. However, it has sought a guarantee that Ukraine will not be included in NATO and that NATO countries will not deploy weapons near the Russian border. Russian President Vladimir Putin made the same demand in a video meeting with US President Joe Biden last week. Then Joe Biden said that if Ukraine is invaded, Russia will have to face strict economic sanctions. The G-7 countries have supported this move of America. British Foreign Minister Liz Truss told the media, "We are clear that any aggressive Russian move on Ukraine will have serious consequences and a heavy price." Threats on the pipeline The Truss said that all options have been considered as far as economic sanctions are concerned. However, there is no clear consensus whether the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline should also be banned or not.

But US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that if "Russia re-aggresses or takes any action again" on Ukraine, the pipeline would be very unlikely to be operational.

British Foreign Minister Truss said, "Iran still has time to agree on the deal." Britain is one of the partners in the treaty and for the first time, a party to the treaty has issued such a stern warning to Iran. Negotiations have resumed in Vienna since Thursday to restore the nuclear deal reached in 2015. In 2018. The deal was in jeopardy after then US President Donald Trump broke it.
