(Riccardo Dalle Luche/ANSA via AP) LUCCA, Italy The Group of Seven industrialized nations on Tuesday urged Russia to pressure the Syrian government to end the six year civil war, but rejected a British call to impose new sanctions on Moscow over its support of President Bashar Assad. Foreign ministers from the seven countries said Moscow must change its attitude to Assad if there is to be hope of ending the brutal conflict that has destabilized the Middle East, driven jimmy choo lance millions to escape Syria and further frayed relations between the West and Russia. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. Or, he added, it could maintain its alliance with Syria, Iran and militant group Hezbollah, "which we believe is not going to serve Russia's interests' longer term." Tillerson flew straight from the summit in Italy to Moscow, carrying the G 7's strong desire for a new start in Syria, but few concrete proposals to make it happen. The G 7 blames Assad's military for a deadly chemical attack last week that killed more than 80 people. missile strikes that targeted a Syrian air base believed to have been used to launch the attack. But they were divided about how to deal with Syria, and Moscow. Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano, who hosted the G 7 gathering, said "there is no consensus for further new sanctions." "We must have a dialogue with Russia," he said. and Britain say there is little doubt Assad's forces are culpable. The group's stance was a rebuff to British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who said Monday the G 7 was considering new sanctions on Russian military figures to press Moscow to end military support for the "toxic" Assad government. officials in Washington have also raised that prospect. Others argued for a more conciliatory approach. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Russia, and Assad ally Iran, must be involved in any peace process to end Syria's six year civil war. "Not everyone may like it, but without Moscow and without Tehran there will be no solution for Syria," he said. Johnson put a positive spin on the outcome, saying there could still be sanctions on Russian military officers if an independent investigation into the chemical attack identifies perpetrators. administration's foreign policy is, amid conflicting signals from Washington. has drawn a preliminary conclusion that Russia knew in advance of the chemical attack an allegation that heightens already acute tensions between Washington and red jimmy choo Moscow. missile strikes in response to the April 4 nerve gas attack, the president had focused on defeating the Islamic State group and had shown no appetite for challenging Assad and, by extension, his Russian blue jimmy choo supporter President Vladimir Putin. After the chemical attack, Trump said his attitude toward Assad "has changed very much" and Tillerson said "steps are underway" to organize a coalition to remove him from power. priority in the region remains the jimmy choo romy gold defeat of Islamic State militants. foreign policy focused on preventing humanitarian atrocities, Trump's administration has generally downplayed human rights concerns while promoting an "America First" strategy de emphasizing the concerns of foreign nations. Uncertainty about objectives persisted as Tillerson met Tuesday on the sidelines of the Lucca meeting with diplomats from "like minded" countries on Syria, including Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as G 7 members. hopes the regional countries can help ensure security and stability in Syria after the Islamic State group is defeated. The G 7 members broadly agree that Assad should go but not necessarily when, or how. European leaders are especially conscious of the disaster in Libya, where an internationally backed ouster of dictator Moammar Gadhafi was followed by a descent into chaos and factional fighting. Tillerson said Tuesday that "It is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end." "But the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified Syria.
"That's why we are not presupposing how that occurs," Tillerson added. Although Syria dominated discussion, the diplomats met as the United States is sending a Navy carrier strike group toward the Korean Peninsula in a show of strength following North Korea's persistent ballistic missile tests. The G 7 urged North Korea to refrain from further "destabilizing or provocative actions" and abandon its nuclear weapons program a call likely to fall on deaf ears.
