The final statement of the G7 Group stated that the G7 Group will donate 1 billion doses of the covid-19 vaccine next year, and cooperate with the private sector, G20 and other countries to increase donations in the coming months.
“The last time we met was in February 2021, and now in Carbis Bay, our commitment is to inject 1 billion doses within a year,” Reuters said in a statement after the three-day summit. .
“We will work with the private sector, G20 and other countries to increase our contribution in the coming months,” it added.
Two sources said that the diplomats who worked late into the night on Sunday almost completed the final statement, although some parts of it may still be changed at the last minute.
A diplomatic source said that there are some differences in the statement. For example, Japan wants to make tougher remarks against China.
The dpa agency also understood some of the content of the closing speech, saying that the G7 agreed to take a tougher stance against China on the last day of the Cornwall summit.
dpa wrote that as part of the final G7 declaration, he said he would deal with China’s unfair trade practices, human rights issues, and the suppression of Hong Kong’s opposition.
At the same time, the statement emphasized the common interests of cooperating with China to address global challenges such as climate change and biodiversity conservation.
This will be the first time the G7 has criticized the world’s second largest economy so directly in its final statement.
On the last day of the Cornish G7 summit, heads of state and government talked about climate change and intend to agree on ambitious climate goals, and then global discussions will take place at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in November.
Among other things, the heads of state and government plan to commit to measures to limit state subsidies to fossil energy such as coal.
The United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Canada also hope to provide developing countries with up to US$2 billion in funding to accelerate the phase-out of coal.
A White House statement also stated that the G7 will coordinate its climate goals so that the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees above the pre-industrial level set in the Paris Climate Agreement remains “at your fingertips.”
Compared with pre-industrial levels, the country has warmed by about 1.2 degrees.
The British government said on Saturday night that the G7 national plan pledged to raise $100 billion a year to fund climate initiatives in developing countries.
