THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) -- Western nations and Japan say they are suspending their participation in the Group of Eight until Russia "changes course."

In a joint statement, the Group of Seven nations say they will instead meet without Russia. The move is aimed at isolating Moscow as punishment for its annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine.

The G7 nations issued the statement following an emergency meeting Monday in the Netherlands. The leaders say they are ready to "intensity actions" against Russian is Moscow escalates the conflict further.
