The G7's joint communique also urged North Korea to return to dialogue for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Welcoming the Biden administration's new North Korea policy, the G7 endorsed Washington's willingness to continue diplomatic efforts to engage the regime.
In addition, they called for all states to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions and related sanctions.
They also said the North should respect human rights and immediately resolve the issue of the Japanese nationals it abducted in the 1970s and 80s.
