The G7 are discussing global challenges including climate change and threats to human rights.

Foreign ministers from the world’s leading economies have met in London for their first face-to-face talks in more than two years.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will lead discussions on the crisis in Myanmar, as well as relations with Russia, China and Iran.

The talks, held amid tight Covid restrictions, will finish on Wednesday.

The G7 group – the world’s seven largest so-called advanced economies – is made up of the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States.

Australia, India, South Korea and South Africa have also been invited as guests to the summit, as the UK tries to deepen ties with the Indo-Pacific region.
