MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. The Kremlin regrets that the G7 summit has made no calls on all the signatories of the Minsk-2 agreements to comply with them, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"We have paid attention to the line towards linking the sanctions affairs with Russia’s compliance with the Minsk agreements," Peskov said in comments to the summit that is underway in Germany.
"Here we have also repeatedly stressed that one has just to read these Minsk agreements and once again refresh one’s memory about them in order to probably understand who has to comply with the Minsk agreements," he said.
"In this case, we have not heard any calls on those who should be committed to them. Unfortunately, we have not yet heard such calls," Peskov stressed.
The Kremlin spokesman said Russia is aware of further statements concerning the sanctions, adding that "these are not new theses." He also noted that some participants of the meeting have "certain nuances in their approaches."
"Some of them speak about the need to advance dialogue with Russia and the impossibility of solving serious problems without this dialogue," Peskov said. He added that the summit has not ended yet and it is early to give more comments on the meeting.
The Group of Seven (G7) is an association of economically developed countries consisting of Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the United States, France and Japan. Its key goals are to seek solutions for global political and social problems. In 1976-1997 the group existed in the form of G7.
After Russia joined G7, the association got the name of the Group of Eight (G8). In March 2014, as a result of the events in Ukraine and the ensuing crisis in Russia-West relations, the organization decided to return to the G7 format.
