G7 leaders back strengthening cooperation with Russia after its expulsion from the group in 2014 but believe it is too early to reintegrate Moscow and return to a G8, diplomatic sources said Sunday, August 25th, according to AFP.

"The leaders of the G7 are in favour of reinforcing coordination with Russia, but it is too early for reintegration," said a diplomatic source, who asked not to be named.  

G7 leaders had also mandated French President Emmanuel Macron to send a message to Iran as tensions rise over its nuclear programme, the source said.
