China has been accused of spreading the corona virus epidemic. During the G-7 Summit in Britain, the member countries also demanded a new study to find out the origin of the virus. The role of China in this was also investigated earlier and the World Health Organization team was sent to China but it was not given complete data. A statement was also issued on the allegations of human rights violations against China in the summit.
virus leak check
The G-7 countries have demanded in their statement that a transparent investigation based on science should be conducted on time from WHO experts to find out the origin of Covid-19. At the same time, UK Foreign Minister Dominic Raab has said that officials’ ‘comparative notes’ about the possibility of spreading the virus from the virus leaked from the Wuhan lab of the epidemic call for more investigation.
WHO chief also agreed
Earlier, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Saturday that this apprehension was raised during the G-7 conference held in Cornwall at a formal session on health matters and to trace the source of the epidemic. He also said that the first phase of the study of the origin of the virus was not conclusive and there were four theories but no conclusion has been reached on them so far. That’s why we believe that all the four theories should be open and we should move to the second stage so that the origin of the virus can be detected.
China encircles Hong Kong, Xinjiang
Concerns were expressed against bonded labor in a statement issued on Sunday. It said China should respect human rights in Xinjiang, grant Hong-Kong more autonomy and avoid harming security in the South China Sea. US President Joe Biden took a tough stand against China and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron also supported him to some extent.
Europe not with Biden?
Biden wanted to persuade fellow democratic leaders to present a more united front to compete economically with China. However, the leaders of Europe did not support him in the way he might have expected. Before issuing the statement, it was not decided whether to speak on many issues or not. According to US administration officials, all countries supported Biden on many issues, but a concrete consensus could not be reached about China. In particular, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and other leaders were concerned that the statement should not be seen as provoking China.
An eye on the economic challenge from China
G-7 leaders have also said that they will work together to challenge China’s divergence from its market-led economy. In the statement, the G-7 said, “In the context of competition facing China and the global economy, we will continue to consult for collective initiatives to challenge policies and approaches that differ from market-directed economies as such approaches are fair and impartial to the global economy.” Make transparent operations weak.
