Politics

Biarritz, France, Aug. 24 (Jiji Press)--Leaders of the Group of Seven major powers discussed a U.S. proposal to allow Russia to return to the summit framework, when they met in France on Saturday for three-day talks.

The G-7 leaders do not seem to reach a conclusion on the issue. They also exchanged views on Iran, agreeing to stop the country from acquiring nuclear weapons and pursue Middle East peace and stability.

The G-7 meeting in Biarritz, southwestern France, brought together leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States plus the European Union.

The three-day Biarritz summit talks opened with a dinner session after French President Emmanuel Macron, chair of this year's conference, received his G-7 counterparts.

The dinner session covered Iran, the Russian and Ukrainian situations and Amazon rainforest fires in South America.
