G7 leaders urge Russia to work with Ukraine

US President Barack Obama says G7 leaders are prepared to impose further sanctions on Russia if it continues to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty.

The G7 summit has been held in Brussels overnight for the first time since leaders voted to expel Russia from the former Group of eight.

The French President Francois Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron are also holding talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin later today.

Speaking at the completion of the G7 talks, President Obama has urged Russia to work with the new Ukrainian President.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will join President Obama and fellow world leaders in France ahead of D-Day commemorations in Normandy.
