The G-7 countries gathered in Britain had questioned China on many issues. China has been put in the dock for its answers to where the corona virus originated, to allegations of human rights violations in Hong Kong and Xinjiang. Obviously the dragon has passed this exasperation. The Chinese embassy in London has expressed “strong dissatisfaction” with the statement issued at the end of the summit and has opposed raising issues like Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan. Not only this, China claims that the facts against it have been presented in a distorted manner, which shows ‘the evil intentions of some countries like America’.
‘China is peace loving but to an extent’
The Chinese embassy says that the corona epidemic is still going on and the global economy is in a bad shape. In such a situation, the international community needs unity and cooperation and not politics that sows the seeds of separatism. The embassy has warned that China is a peace-loving country that promotes cooperation but there are limits for that too. “China’s internal issues should not be interfered, China’s image should not be tarnished, China’s interests should not be violated,” the statement said. It further warned in a stern tone, ‘We will defend our national sovereignty, security and development interests and will fight resolutely against injustice of any kind.’ The embassy says that politics should not be done regarding the origin of the corona virus.
Joe Biden tried to barricade?
During the summit, 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. Biden wanted to persuade fellow democratic leaders to present a more united front to compete economically with China. However, according to US administration officials, all countries supported Biden on many issues, but a concrete agreement could not be reached on 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.
‘China is not a competitor to NATO countries’
At the same time, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Brussels on Monday that NATO leaders do not see China as a rival the way this military organization sees Russia. . However, they are cautious about the growing influence of China. “I don’t think anyone present at the moment wants to start a new Cold War with China today,” he said.
