G-7 Foreign Ministers Address Global Political and Security Issues

Acting Secretary of State John J. Sullivan traveled to Toronto, Canada from April 21-23 to lead the U.S. delegation to the G-7 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting.

On April 22,  Acting Secretary Sullivan participated in the G-7 Outreach Session with Non-G7 Women Foreign Ministers, hosted by Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. The G-7 foreign ministers also met to discuss Russia and Ukraine, the Middle East, and North Korea.

On April 23, the G-7 foreign ministers held working sessions on North Africa and the Mediterranean, Sub-Saharan, and Human Mobility and on Conflict Prevention, UN Reform, Cyber Issues, and Counterterrorism/Countering Violent Extremism. 

The G-7 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting offered an opportunity for the foreign ministers to exchange views and collaborate on global political and security issues of mutual concern. These conversations will also set the stage for the G-7 Leaders’ Summit in Charlevoix, Canada, in June 2018.
