On Sunday, China severely warned the leaders of the Group of Seven that the days when the “small” group of countries determined the fate of the world are long gone, and they are fighting back against the world’s richest democracies in seeking a unified stand against Beijing.
A spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in London said: “Gone are the days when global decisions were made by a few countries.”
“We always believe that countries, big or small, strong or weak, rich or poor, are equal, and that world issues should be resolved through consultation with all countries.”
With the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the end of the Cold War, China’s becoming the world’s leading power is considered one of the most important geopolitical events in modern times.
The leaders of the Group of Seven nations met in southwest England to seek a consistent response to President Xi Jinping’s growing self-confidence following China’s economic and military rise in the past 40 years.
The leaders of the organization — the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, and Japan — hope to use their gatherings in the British seaside resort of Cabis Bay to show the world that the richest democracies can help China grow. The influence of the company provides alternatives.
According to sources, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau presided over the G7 debate on China on Saturday and called on leaders to adopt a unified approach to the challenges posed by the People’s Republic of China.
The G7 plan provides developing countries with an infrastructure plan to complement Xi Jinping’s multi-billion dollar “Belt and Road” initiative.
