Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan will travel to Dinard France from April 5-6 to lead the U.S. delegation to the G-7 Foreign Affairs Ministerial. There, he will engage in discussions on a broad range of issues, including the deteriorating situation in Venezuela, destabilizing Iranian behavior in the Middle East, the responsible conduct of states in cyber space, and the final denuclearization of North Korea. Under Secretary for Political Affairs David Hale will accompany the Deputy Secretary.
The G-7 Foreign Affairs Ministerial offers an opportunity for foreign ministers to seek common ground on global political and security issues of mutual concern. These conversations will set the stage for the G-7 Leaders’ Summit in Biarritz, France, in August.
On the margins of the G-7 Ministerial, Deputy Secretary Sullivan will also meet with foreign ministers for bilateral discussions.
