China, which believes that global affairs should be managed through consultation with all nations, big or small, says that the time when global decisions were dictated by a small group is long gone.
And in a statement by the spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in London, posted on its official website, the Asian giant expressed its views on the G7 summit, and emphasized that “there is one system and one international system in the world. The United Nations is at its core.”
For China, there is also one set of global rules, those that are based on the principles of the UN Charter, “and not on the supposed rules formulated by a few countries.”
“We have always believed that nations, big or small, strong or weak, strong or rich, are equal, and global affairs should be managed in consultation with all nations,” the spokeswoman said.
Responding to pleas made at the G7 summit, Beijing said there was “only one kind of multilateralism”, also based on the UN Charter and international law, against “a false multilateralism that serves the interests of a political clique or bloc”.
Therefore, he urged “relevant countries” to take steps to preserve the goals and principles of the United Nations Charter and make “real efforts” to quickly overcome the coronavirus, respond effectively to climate change, and work for a “strong global economic recovery.” . “.
The Chinese reaction comes after US President Joe Biden convinced the rest of the G7 leaders of the need to launch a major infrastructure plan that would neutralize China’s advance.
In this regard, G7 leaders agreed on Saturday to launch an initiative to “Build Back Better for the World” in order to “respond to the enormous infrastructure needs in middle- and high-income countries,” according to the White House.
The plan aims to be an alternative to the Chinese New Silk Road project, which aims to revitalize the so-called Silk Road by modernizing infrastructure and communications to improve connectivity between Asia and Europe.
