Japan hosts G7 summit
The G7 calls on China to maintain a comprehensive, just and lasting peace based on territorial integrity and the principles and purposes of the UN Charter.
The leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) countries put pressure on Russia to stop its military aggression and withdraw its troops from Ukraine. This is stated in a communiqué released on May 20 following the talks of the leaders at a meeting in Hiroshima in Japan.
“We call on China to maintain a comprehensive, just and lasting peace based on territorial integrity and the principles and purposes of the UN Charter, including through direct dialogue with Ukraine,” the statement said.
The G7 leaders noted that they are “ready to build constructive and stable relations with China, recognizing the importance of frank interaction.”
“Our political approach is not aimed at harming China, and we do not seek to hinder China’s economic progress and development. A growing China according to international rules will be of global interest. We do not disengage or withdraw into ourselves. At the same time, we recognize “economic sustainability requires risk reduction and diversification. We will take steps individually and collectively to invest in our own economic activity. We will reduce overdependence in our critical supply chains,” the G7 said in a statement.
The leaders of the G7 countries said they will try to “solve the problems associated with China’s non-market policies and practices that are crippling the world economy.”
“We will counter malicious activities such as illegal transfer of technology or disclosure of data. We will promote resilience against economic coercion. We also recognize the need to protect certain advanced technologies that could be used to threaten our national security without unduly restricting trade and investment.” , the statement said.
In addition, the leaders of the G7 countries stressed that they are seriously concerned about the situation in the East and South China Seas and strongly oppose any unilateral attempts to change the status quo by force or coercion.
“There is no change in the main positions of the G7 members on Taiwan, including the policy of one China. We call for a peaceful solution to problems on both sides of the strait,” the leaders of the G7 countries said.
Recall, as US President Joseph Biden said, over the course of 15 months, the solidarity of the G7 countries with Ukraine has become stronger than even in 2022.
As reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived on a visit to Japan for the G7 summit.
