During a meeting at the G7 summit, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed to step up military support for Ukraine and noted the critical need for such steps at this stage of the war.
“President Macron praised the Prime Minister’s [Boris Johnson’s] ongoing military support to Ukraine and the leaders agreed to step up this work,” reads the press release of the British Prime Minister’s Office.
As noted, the French and British leaders agreed that now is a critical moment for the war in Ukraine, and there is an opportunity to turn the tide in the war.
Johnson stressed any attempt to settle the conflict now will only cause enduring instability and give Putin licence to manipulate both sovereign countries and international markets in perpetuity.
The G7 summit of the heads of state and government of the world's most powerful economies and democracies is held under the German chairmanship at the Elmau Castle in the rural district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen of the Bavarian Alps on Sunday.
