Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, said "diplomacy is back," as G7 powers met in London for their first face-to-face meetings in over two years.

Raab said the summit of foreign ministers from the world's leading economies showed the importance of "getting countries together".

The group is discussing challenges including climate change and threats to human rights.

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, as the UK tries to deepen ties with the Indo-Pacific region.

The UK, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the G7, will host a leaders' summit in Cornwall next month.
