Foreign Ministers of G-7 countries meet in London today to discuss a range of international issues including relations with China and Russia, the coup in Myanmar, the Syrian conflict, and the situation in Afghanistan.      

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Rabb is expected to urge G-7 members to sanction individuals and entities connected to Myanmar’s military junta, to support arms embargoes and to boost humanitarian aid to the people of Myanmar.  

On the sidelines of the G-7 meetings, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met Dominic Rabb and agreed that their goal is not to contain or hold China down but to uphold the international rules for mutual benefits.
