The Group of Seven major Western industrial nations (G7) wants to send a signal of unity. G7 foreign ministers discussed further military support for Kiev against Russian attacks from the air.

After the major Iranian attack on Israel, there were further sanctions against Tehran - also with the aim of preventing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from launching a large-scale counterattack. For the first time, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was invited as an official guest to the G7 spring meeting in Capri, Italy, on April 6-7, 2014. The G7 is made up of Italy, the USA, Canada, Great Britain, France, and Japan as well as the EU. It should be a signal to Moscow and the mullahs. Does it work? The group of economically strong democracies is campaigning for more air defense for Kiev and greater isolation of Tehran. The meeting lasted until Friday, and Germany is currently preparing to deliver a third Patriot system.
