Extraordinary Meeting of G7 Transport Ministers on the Red Sea Crisis


As current presidency of the G7, today Italy convened an extraordinary meeting of transport ministers.
At the heart of the meeting, chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister Matteo Salvini, were issues related to the crisis in the Red Sea and international maritime connectivity.
At the end of the video conference meeting, the G7 transport ministers adopted a declaration defending maritime routes and global connectivity. The declaration condemns the attacks carried out by the Houthis against commercial vessels transiting the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, as well as against the naval vessels protecting them, emphasizing how disruptions to navigation in the Red Sea have led to significant increases in transportation tariffs with consequences for global supply chains and prices.

The ministers also reiterated how maritime security and the rights and freedoms of navigation are essential to ensure the free movement of goods and people worldwide and emphasized the importance of continuing discussions at senior officials level on establishing a working group on transportation supply chains which will be adopted at the G7 transport ministerial meeting to be held in Milan from April 11 to 13, 2024.
