See Wall Street Journal June 9, 2007 article G-8 Threatens More Sanctions for Iran by Marcus Walker

■ Leaders of the major industrialized countries, including Russia, threatened Iran with further United Nations Security Council sanctions if it doesn't suspend its nuclear fuel program.

■ “German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who chaired the summit, condemned Iran's expansion of its uranium enrichment program and its threats against Israel. A joint statement by the G-8 said they "will support adopting further measures" to existing U.N. sanctions against Iran unless Iran suspends its enrichment activities.”
