British Prime Minister to urge G7 partners to maintain sanctions against Russia

Reporters inform that Cameron wants to convince the G7 partners of the inadmissibility of weakening economic pressure against Moscow after the expiry of anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the EU, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Press Association.

"Cameron will try to present Russia as one of the most serious challenges to security and prosperity in the modern world," Press Association writes. The agency noted that the extension of the sanctions regime needed the consent of all 28 members of the EU, which will hold the summit in Brussels at the end of June.

In this regard, Press Association is afraid of "possible surprises" from the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. The agency does not rule out that Athens can "break the ranks" and block the extension of the sanctions regime in defiance of the leadership of the leading countries of Europe, including the UK.

The press also reports that the plane with U.S. President Barack Obama on board has already landed at the airport in Munich, German. The American leader flew to Germany to participate in the summit of the Group of Seven.

Obama plans to hold talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. After that, they will meet with the residents of the Krün commune.

It should be recalled that the validity of the EU economic sanctions against the key enterprises of banking, oil and defense sectors of Russia expires in July.
